Christmas Party is the new holiday album from She & Him, the duo comprised of
Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. Christmas Party is the follow up to their wildly
popular A Very She And Him Christmas, and this new collection features guest
appearances by Jenny Lewis, The Chapin Sisters and Sonic Youth’s Steve
Shelley.Christmas Party is replete with holiday favorites – including classics
like Darlene Love and Phil Spector’s “Marshmallow World,” Bing Crosby’s “Mele
Kalikimaka” and Chuck Berry’s “Run Run Rudolph.” But, Ward and Deschanel also
may introduce listeners to the more obscure tracks such as folk-singer Vashti
Bunyon’s “Coldest Night of the Year” and the lesser know Sinatra track
“Christmas Memories.” Pop favorites such as Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for
Christmas Is You” and The Chipmunks “Christmas Don’t Be Late” round out the
celebration. Throughout the album is She & Him’s signature stripped down take
on production.It was the positive experience they had recording their first
Christmas record, A Very She & Him Christmas, in 2011 that brought M. Ward and
Zooey Deschanel back for another round of holiday cheer. Much like their first
Christmas record, She & Him bring an organic and minimalistic approach to
their holiday covers. Highly produced classics get stripped down to their most
fundamental elements, a style perfectly aligned with their vision. You won’t
find any accompanying orchestra or full-piece brass bands on Christmas Party.
Instead, She & Him rely on friends and family to lend a simple and authentic
holiday vibe to this album, one where the guest list speaks for itself.In the
years between the two holiday records, She & Him released Vol. 3, an album of
original songs, and kept their affection for covers alive with Classics, a
compilation of covers of their favorite standards. Throughout these
intervening years and albums, Zooey and Ward gradually culled a new collection
of holiday songs to re-interpret, tucking them away like a stack of presents
growing under a tree. As Christmas Party comes to a close, the listener can
take solace in knowing the door on this gathering is never fully shut. The
sing-alongs, the happy accidents, the quiet moments with loved ones – they’re
all waiting for you whenever you wish to immerse yourself in the splendor of
the season. As Ward himself says, “Music is one of the purest ways into
