The Haim Sisters Release Poignant New Single Ahead Of Third Album Women In Music Pt. III

With its wild collage of warped vocal samples and 808 beats combined with wobbly cello notes and stark acoustic guitar,  the release of Southern California-bred sister band Haim's single I Know Alone replicates a certain sense of emotional unrest from feelings of loneliness.

While the song was originally inspired by the band's feelings of loneliness after coming home from tour, I Know Alone and its lyrics like "been a couple days since I've been out" and "'cause nights turn into days that turn to grey" now take on a whole new meaning in today"s world as so many of us stay home and practice social distancing. 

In tandem with the song, Haim have shared a stark, yet precisely choregraphed video directed remotely by Jake Schreier (Chance The Rapper, Kanye West, Selena Gomez). 

The band co-choreographed the video with Francis Farewell Starlite


"I Know Alone' was always going to be the next song we released, but it feels eerily appropriate given what's going on in the world right now," Haim say about the new single/

"We hope this song keeps you company."
 
Speaking on the new album late June release date, the band add:

"Now that we're all starting to settle into our new normal, it feels like a more appropriate time for us to release this body of work. 

"We're so excited to announce that our new album will now be released on June 26th" 

The new single" is the latest song Haim have shared from Women In Music Pt. III

Their new album, which was originally scheduled for release April 24th, will now be released on June 26th. 

Danielle Haim co-produced the new album along with longtime collaborators Grammy Award-winning producer Ariel Rechtshaid (Adele, Blood Orange, Carly Rae Jepsen) and Rostam Batmanglij (Charli XCX, Solange, Frank Ocean). 
   
Women In Music Pt. III is the follow up to Haim's second album, Something To Tell You.
