This wistful portrait of a time when Zooey Deschanel, "could've been your girl, you could've been my four-leaf clover," is one of several songs about loss and heartbreak on Volume 3. It is likely that they were inspired by the singer's divorce from Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard in 2011, as this is the first She & Him record since then.
Deschanel's self-directed video was inspired by her favorite 1960s musicals. She dances throughout the clip, whilst her She & Him partner, M. Ward, appears as a mean-looking café owner. Said Deschanel: "After seven years and four albums with She & Him, I figured it was about time I took a crack at making a video for a song I wrote. The process was so much fun, and gave me a chance to give a nod to some of my favorite '60s musicals."
"Lean On" was originally sent by Major Lazer to both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj's camps as a slower reggae track. After both parties rejected the tune, Major Lazer recruited Danish singer MØ to supply vocals and recorded it themselves.
