She & Him, the alt-folk duo of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, will release its third non-holiday full-length, "Volume 3," on May 7 through Merge Records. Shortly after, Deschanel and Ward will embark on a tour of North America, beginning on June 14 in Nashville.
Produced by Ward and recorded in New York, Portland and Los Angeles, "Volume 3" will include 11 original tracks penned by Deschanel and three covers, including a new take on Mel Carter's "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me." Mike Watt, Tilly and the Wall, Rilo Kiley's Pierre de Reeder and DeVotchka's Tom Hagerman will make guest appearances on the LP.
She & Him's "Volume Two" has sold 254,000 copies since its 2010 release according to Nielsen SoundScan, but the duo's best-seller remains "A Very She & Him Christmas," which has moved a whopping 354,000 units since 2011. Since its 2008 debut on Merge (titled -- you guessed it -- "Volume One"), She & Him has sold over 900,000 copies of its three full-lengths, according to SoundScan.
