SINGLE REVIEW: She & Him – Stay Awhile

Back in August, She & Him announced plans for a new album. Since then we’ve had two teaser videos and now we get the first single, Stay Awhile. The new album, Classics, is a cover album and this song was originally written by Mike Hawker and Ivor Raymonde and featured on Dusty Springfield’s debut album Stay Awhile/I Only Want to Be with You in 1964.

The She & Him version is wonderful with reverb sprinkled all over the song thanks to M. Ward. It just sounds delicious. You can hear the song right here:

New She & Him albums are always something to look forward to and this is their 5th album release after three ‘Volume’ albums and a Christmas album. No doubt this will be just as good as all of the others and I can’t wait to hear it.

The track listing for new album Classics is as follows:

1. Stars Fell on Alabama
2. Oh No, Not My Baby 
3. It’s Not for Me to Say 
4. Stay Awhile
5. This Girl’s In Love With You
6. Time After Time
7. She
8. Teach Me Tonight 
9. It’s Always You  
10. Unchained Melody
11. I’ll Never Be Free
12. Would You Like to Take a Walk 
13. We’ll Meet Again

The album is out on the 2nd December.
