Is Zooey Deschanel an unstoppable creative juggernaut or what?

Her campy recent film “Your Highness” just came out on DVD/Blu-ray. Another new movie just hit theaters — the squirrelly Paul Rudd vehicle “Our Idiot Brother.” And her new fall TV series will soon premiere, “New Girl,” in which she stars as the zany Jessica Day.

But she’s not just a pretty silver-screen face.

She also maintains a bustling singing career with M. Ward, as the folksy pop duo She & Him. Who just happen to have another record coming out Oct. 25, via hip indie imprint Merge.

And this time, it’s seasonal. Inspired by Yuletide classics of yore, a la Elvis, The Carpenters and Vince Guraldi, Deschanel and Ward have concocted “A Very She & Him Christmas,” recorded in LA and New York.

The track listing says it all: “The Christmas Waltz,” “Christmas Day,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” “Christmas Wish,” “Sleigh Ride,” “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree,” “Silver Bells,” “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” “Blue Christmas,” “Little Saint Nick” and “The Christmas Song.”

It’s traditional, all the way. For more information, visit www.sheandhim.com.
