The country-folk duo of M. Ward and actress Zooey Deschanel, known as She & Him, is slated to return in 2010, proving that the 2008 collaboration wasn’t just a one-off affair.

Aptly titled "Volume 2," the 13-song set is due March 23 on Merge and features 10 original songs and two covers, NRBQ’s "Ridin’ in My Car" and Skeeter Davis’ "Gonna Get Along Without You." Deschanel wrote the originals, with Ward producing. The pair recorded the tracks over the past year in Los Angeles and Portland, Oregon.
