She & Him Guy Goes Solo; New Album, More Rain

You’ve heard plenty from the She; now hear from Him

It’s hard to believe there have been five LPs from the successful male/female duo She & Him. She & Him is the projected fronted by magnetic, big-eyed actress Zooey Deschanel, who you can also watch on Fox’s network sitcom New Girl. But Zooey is just one half of the talented duo; there is a HIM after all. The him is M. Ward, and he’s ready to make a statement without Zooey beside him. M. Ward is releasing his album, More Rain, on March 4th through Merge Records. The new record is said to be “a true gotta-stay-indoors, rainy-season record that looks upwards through the weather,” and many of the songs stem from M. Ward reflecting on his past, which likely includes his successful stint as Zooey Deschanel’s music maker. M. Ward has shared a video for the song, “Girl From Conejo Valley”, which appears on the upcoming album. Watch that below.

See, this guy is quite capable of being just the Him to Zooey Deschanel’s She. I think he has a bright future ahead of him as a solo artist, which already includes seven previous solo albums.
