"Matt and I had a choice, basically a list of songs [from] different artists that were already on the soundtrack that we could cover," Deschanel tells Spinner. Tackling Morrissey is a big responsibility, as you have to be able to convey that sense of desperation that marked the classic song, But Deschanel felt Moz's anguish. "Oh, definitely. I feel he was like a new Chet Baker. It's like a classic voice with a classic sense of longing, classic torch-song kind of voice," she says. "I love singing that kind of music and this song, you can't help but feel tortured like Morrissey."
She and Ward are also well into a new She and Him record, a follow-up to their critically acclaimed 'Volume One.' "We're pretty far along. It's very advanced," she tells Spinner. While there will be some more covers -- she wouldn't reveal them just yet, saying, "It's a surprise" -- don't expect further channeling of Morrissey. "It's a lot of new material," she says, "and there are a couple of covers, but more obscure."
