Actress and sometime singer Zooey Deschanel has reportedly written and recorded the official theme song for her new Fox comedy series.

New Girl sees Deschanel take on the role of an eccentric school teacher called Jessica who moves in with three guys after being dumped by her boyfriend.

According to Billboard, Deschanel wanted to record the song herself because it fits with her character, who often bursts into song at inappropriate times.

"It's just part of how she expresses herself," she told Billboard during the TCA event on Friday. "They're songlets, they come spontaneously to the character."

The series is Deschanel's first regular television role, after starring in several successful films including (500) Days of Summer and Yes Man.

New Girl will premiere on Fox on September 20.
