She & Him Announce Brian Wilson Covers Album Melt Away, Share New Video for “Darlin’”: Watch

She & Him, the duo of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, have announced a new album of Brian Wilson and Beach Boys covers. Melt Away: A Tribute to Brian Wilson is out July 22 via Fantasy and it features Wilson himself on their version of “Do It Again.” First up is their rendition of “Darlin’” off 1967’s Wild Honey; watch the video below. The duo will also head out on tour singing these songs.

“In the spring of 2020, we started a list of our favorite Brian songs—a very long list,” the duo said in a statement. “We chose songs without any regard to their chart performance. The obscure ones hit us just as hard as the more popular songs—and all are ripe for re-imagining, re-interpreting, and re-inventing. Brian writes songs of beauty and loneliness and vulnerability better than anyone—and by sequencing them next to popular songs of confidence and love and fun, it creates a more complete picture of life on earth.”

“Zooey and Matt did such mind-blowing versions of our songs,” Wilson added. “The harmonies are beautiful and right on. I love this record!”
