We have another update in the ongoing sensation that is Universal Love.
Last month, we shared with you the news that a bunch of singers like Bob Dylan and Death Cab For Cutie’s front man Benjamin Gibbard were changing the lyrics of classic wedding songs and making them into same-sex love songs.
Then, we shared with you Kesha’s music video for her song “I Need A Woman To Love” in which she helped a real life gay couple get married.
Now, it looks like singing duo She & Him are joining the fun.
If you don’t know She & Him, they’re a folk duo made up of actress Zooey Deschanel and musician M. Ward.
The two have recently announced that they’re joining the Universal Love playlist created by MGM resorts with two different versions of the same song.
Specifically, they recently released the new singles, “He Gives His Love to Me” and “She Gives Her Love To Me.”
“What drew us to this project is that it opens up new ways of thinking about songwriting,” Deschanel and Ward tell Rolling Stone. “It would be amazing if our songs help to inspire other artists to engage with lyrics in a more open, and inclusive way.”
Not only is this a great announcement for fans of LGBTQ entertainment media, but this is also exciting news for She & Him fans as the music duo haven’t come out with new music in five years.
This also marks the first original song to join the now growing playlist of songs for same-sex weddings.
If you want to get excited too, you can check out both singles down below.
