They recorded Deschanel's songs at studios in Los Angeles and Portland, Oregon, when they found free time together.
Last year, she starred in bittersweet romantic comedy '(500) Days Of Summer,' while Ward put out solo album 'Hold Time' and formed side-project Monsters of Folk with Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis and Jim James. 'Volume Two' is preceded by single 'In The Sun', released Mar. 29.

Its digital release is followed by a limited edition 7" on Apr. 17.
