Free MP3 Download: She & Him Cover “Fools Rush In”

You may have heard about a new web series presented by Levi’s called The Pioneer Sessions.  The series features video of artists who were “invited to re-craft the classic songs that inspired their sound.”  Fans can then download an mp3 of the tune for free.

Sounds cool to us—especially considering that the latest installment stars indie sweethearts She & Him performing “Fools Rush In.” The pair completely blew us away at their Madison show at The Barrymore back in 2008, and we just can’t get enough of ’em. Head over to The Pioneer Sessions page to learn more about the series and grab your free download.

Oh, and you might want to bookmark The Pioneer Sessions site now, because in addition to posting previous recordings from Nas and The Swell Season, sessions from other incredible artists like The Kills, Dirty Projectors, and The Shins are on-deck.
