Listen: She & Him – “Oh Boy” (Buddy Holly cover)

By ; June 10, 2011 at 2:17 PM 

The indie star-studded compilation of Buddy Holly covers Rave On Buddy Holly is only a couple of weeks away from ints June 28th release date. We’ve already heard the contribution from the Black Keys, Modest Mouse, Paul McCartney and Julian Casablancas, and now its She & Him’s turn.

M. Ward is no stranger to covering songs popularised by Buddy Holly, since he did a great version of “Rave On” for his last studio album Hold Time, but this time it’s his partner Zooey Deschanel who takes the lead vocal. This may be the last we hear from She & Him for a while since M. Ward is currently touring solo and is likely to announce a new album very soon. If it is then this is a darn fun way for the duo to sign off. Listen to “Oh Boy” below.
