Zooey Deschanel tweeted out her band She & Him’s first single off their upcoming album Volume 3. Never Wanted Your Love is a catchy and upbeat song that fits within the She & Him sound. Zooey croons, “I never wanted your love but I needed it all”. I wonder if she was referring to her ex-husband Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie? She & Him, also known as Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, will release their third album of original material May 7.
