She & Him, the duo featuring M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel are kicking off their Melt Away Tour: A Tribute To Brian Wilson in June.
Throughout the tour, the pair will play their original songs as well as classics written by the Beach Boys’ founder. The 10-date tour kicks off June 13 in Denver, Colorado and concludes in Los Angeles on June 25.
Last year the duo covered the Beach Boys’ 1967 Wild Honey single “Darlin,'” which they recorded remotely during the pandemic and marked the first time the pair have released a new song since 2018. The song “Darlin'” recently appeared on the Beach Boys’ compilation 1967 – Sunshine Tomorrow in 2017.
In 2019 She & Him went on a Christmas tour, performing selections from their two collections of holiday music: 2011’s A Very She & Him Christmas and 2016’s Christmas Party.
The duo released their fifth album Classics in 2014, a collection of 13 classic covers, and M. Ward released his 11th album Migration Stories.
