She & Him have premiered the video for their newest song, “I Could’ve Been Your Girl,” on HelloGiggles today.
The video marks the first time the band’s singer-songwriter Zooey Deschanel has stepped behind the camera to direct; the result is an amalgamation of everything that makes She & Him so damn charming—an incredible chorus, choreography by Sophie Olson, vintage dresses, M. Ward’s genius guitar playing, and a whole lot of fun.

Says Deschanel about directing, “After 7 years and 4 albums with She & Him, I figured it was about time I took a crack at making a video for a song I wrote. The process was so much fun, and gave me a chance to give a nod to some of my favorite 60’s musicals.”
“I Could’ve Been Your Girl” is one of the highlights on the band’s new album, Volume 3, which is in stores now. In Volume 3, they’ve created an effortlessly effervescent, bleached-out-in-the-sun pop record, featuring some of the most dynamic, complex songs Deschanel has ever written. The album allows for tempo shifts, disco grooves, string arrangements on multiple tracks, and horn flourishes that perfectly suit the She & Him sound.
She & Him’s Volume 3 is available on CD, LP, and now cassette in the Merge store, the band’s online store, and at your local record store.
