While not formally billed as She & Him for the project, the folk-pop duo have teamed up again for a brand new tune: “So Long,” a song written by Zooey Deschanel and performed with M. Ward for the closing credits in this summer’s Winnie the Pooh animated feature film.
“Who doesn’t love Winnie the Pooh?” Deschanel asks in a short preview/promo video sent out today. “He is cuddly and adorable. He loves honey—at least that’s what I heard. But he loves his friends even more. I just want to hug him.” In addition to “So Long,” Deschanel performs the movie’s theme song, “A Very Important Thing to Do,” as well as guest vocals on “Everything is Honey” and “Pooh’s Finale” alongside cast member Jim Cummings, Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez, and others.
Winnie the Pooh hits the big screen on July 15, but in the meantime, you can watch Deschanel and Ward playing a minute of “So Long” here or after the jump.
