Yes, you heard correctly – Haim have finally crystallized their long-awaited return!
Four years after their incredibly impressive debut album Days Are Gone, the Haim sisters have been slowly but surely hinting at new music. Fans were becoming restless when mysterious billboards appeared in the Valley in California just before Coachella and the band posted video from the recording studio earlier this week.
Alana, Este and Danielle Haim answered all of our impatient musical prayers in a lively, energetic interview on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe. The sisters detailed as much as they could about their sophomore LP, Something to Tell You. The album – produced by Ariel Rechtshaid and in collaboration with former Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij – will be out July 7 via Columbia/Polydor Records.
Being the groundbreaking girls they are, Haim did not merely debut their first new single with Zane Lowe. Instead, they premiered a stunning live-to-tape video of the haunting, mid-tempo tune “Right Now.” The video was directed by none other than Hollywood heavyweight Paul Thomas Anderson, who – in an almost too cosmic to be true work of fate – was a student of the Haim sisters’ mother back in the day.
If “Right Now” is any indication of what’s to come, Something to Tell You will surely be one of the best albums of the summer. And you know what they say: good things come to those who wait!
