Zooey Deschanel to Sing at World Series, Release Christmas Album
Zooey Deschanel is best known for making movies and TV shows like Fox’s “The New Girl,” but apparently the girl can sing, too. Deschanel will be singing the National Anthem before game four of the World Series.
The MLB made the announcement on Twitter, saying:
American Idol star Scotty McCreery had the job in game one. Here’s a video of McCreery’s rendition of the National Anthem.
Deschanel, who sings in the pop group, She & Him with M. Ward, will also be releasing a Christmas album. Deschanel fans have been calling for a Christmas album since Zooey’s sang “Baby It’s Cold Outside” with Will Farrel in Elf.
Fans are getting their wish. Pitchfork reports that A Very She & Him Christmas will be released on October 25th. You can pre-order the album now, either on CD or on red vinyl.
The She & Him website reads:
“A Very She & Him Christmas is a collection of holiday tunes from Zooey Deschanel (She) & M. Ward (Him). Inspired by seminal holiday albums by the likes of The Carpenters, Vince Guaraldi, The Beach Boys, Elvis Presley and more, She & Him have set out to create an intimate holiday recording of Christmas classics that helps bring new emotions out of old songs.”
