She & Him, the duo of actress Zooey Deschanel and Monsters of Folk’s M. Ward, will release the follow-up to their 2008 debut album Volume 1 on March 23rd. Volume 2 will feature 11 new songs from Ward and the newly married Mrs. Ben Gibbard, plus two covers: NRBQ’s “Ridin’ In My Car” and Skeeter Davis’ “Gonna Get Along Without You.” The first single “In the Sun” will also feature guest vocals from Tilly and the Wall.

Take a look at more actors who rock, from Johnny Depp to Juliette Lewis.

Between Volume 1 and Volume 2, She & Him — a Breaking act back in March 2008 — found time to cover the Smiths’ “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want,” which featured in Deschanel’s (500) Days of Summer. “It’s a more complex song than it seems timing-wise, but he’s such a great songwriter and old fashioned in the tradition of the classics — the Gershwins and the Cole Porters — yet writing pop music,” Deschanel told Rolling Stone about recording the Smiths’ ballad in July. Zooey also reported then that the majority of recording of Volume 2 was already complete.
