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.

1. Stars Fell on Alabama
2. Oh No, Not My Baby
3. It’s Not for Me to Say
