SHE & HIM - VERY SHE & HIM CHRISTMAS (10TH ANNV BONUS 7")
This holiday season, Merge will celebrate ten years of A Very She & Him Christmas, a collection of tunes from the duo of Zooey Deschanel(She) & M. Ward (Him)! Recorded and originally released in 2011, the album has been slowly integrating itself into the holiday pop zeitgeist alongside giants like The Carpenters, Vince Guaraldi, Sharon Jones, Beach Boys, etc.
To mark this occasion, a limited-edition deluxe 10th anniversary reissue of the album will be released on November 12th, 2021. This new edition includes the original LP pressed on tinsel silver color vinyl, along with a brand new 7-inch (also on limited silver vinyl) that features renditions of Madonna’s “Holiday” and Wham!’s “Last Christmas,”. A bonus download of “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.” is also included!
The 7-inch can also be purchased separately on evergreen vinyl, which also comes out on November 12th. Since 2011, She & Him have donated a portion of all sales from A Very She & Him Christmas to 826 National, a non-profit for young people to ignite and channel their creativity, explore identity, advocate for themselves and their community, and achieve academic and professional success. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been donated to date, and She & Him are proud to continue that initiative with this reissue.
