A Very She & Him Christmas album cover

Nothing screams quirky like Christmas songs in October. And no one screams, or rather sings, quirky like Zooey Deschanel. So it's no surprise that the singer-actress-manic-pixie-dream-girl has released the first track off She & Him's holiday album a full two-months ahead of the winter season. With "The Christmas Waltz", Deschanel and musical companion M. Ward provide the perfect retro crooning to soundtrack the twee-est, albeit melancholy, Christmas ever. (Anyone who's ever seen Elf knows Zooey was practically bred to spread wintry cheer.) And besides, is it ever too early to sing about candles and candy canes? If you work in retail, maybe it's best you don't answer that question.
