The pop-rock sisters’ third album will be released this summer and fans are already speculating about what to expect.
Last Saturday, Haim gave their followers a small insight into their new music.
A snippet which was part of an Instagram post read: “Hi. We’re gonna be giving this account a lot more love so buckle up. Here’s our first gift don’t tell our label.”
The short music clip shows the multi-instrumentalists LA sisters - Este, Danille and Alana - in the midst of what appears to be a music production session. What can be heard sounds heavily influenced by Jazz, along with a groovy saxophone.
While this offers a glimpse of one of their new song, the rest of the album has been largely kept under wraps.
“Good news is we're in the studio, working on some new stuff that we are hoping to release before Pitchfork fest in July. Some of it is raw as fuck, some of it is for the dance floor, some of it is just us getting weird,” had said Danielle about the album, in another Instagram post from April.
Nothing else was revealed about the content of their next release.
Their last album, 2017’s Something To Tell You had been been praised in Hot Press.
“It fuses ’70s soft-rock and ’80s ballads with Haim’s typical panache, with a thematic focus on dysfunctional relationships. While the lyrics often touch on emotional pain, the music remains infectiously upbeat,” said Natalie Ng.
“Classic pop and rock references permeate the album, with nods to Shania Twain, Prince, Hall & Oates and Fleetwood Ma. Though it’s not a radical departure from their trademark sound, Haim’s distinctive mix of pop and indie remains beguiling,” she added.
Time will soon tell what genres and influences are at the heart of their new album.
