Haim will release their sophomore album Something to Tell You on July 7, 2017, in various formats via Columbia Records. The announcement comes in tandem with the release of a live studio version of new song “Right Now,” the first new music from the forthcoming album.
The song was released as a video of the three Haim sisters — Este, Danielle, and Alana — recording the song in a studio. Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia) stopped by the session and shot Haim while they were recording. Haim will release the single on Wednesday, May 3.
In the meantime, you can check out that video for “Right Now” right here (and dig that insistent cymbal line, smoky organ, and gnarly guitar riff on the chorus). . .
Haim’s debut album, 2013’s Days Are Gone, is available on HDtracks in 96/24, so we expect Something to Tell You to follow suit.
On April 26, Haim gave family, friends, and fans a sneak peek of the video at a special debut party at Canters on Fairfax in Los Angeles. The famed location is the site of the sisters’ first show, almost 18 years earlier. This week it was also announced Haim would return to Saturday Night Live on May 13, with Melissa McCarthy hosting. This will mark the band’s debut live performances of their new music.
Haim reunited with Ariel Rechtshaid to produce Something to Tell You, and the sisters also worked with Rostam Batamanglij (Vampire Weekend). Ahead of releasing the live “Right Now” video, Haim began teasing news of new music with billboards across the globe including locales such as Los Angeles, London, Berlin, Sydney, and Melbourne.
Haim has spent the better part of last few years touring the globe in support of their debut album, including a number of festival performances at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Governor’s Ball to Glastonbury and T in the Park. Haim will return to perform at Glastonbury this June and will also play Splendour in the Grass in Australia, Reading & Leeds Festival in the UK, and Lost Lake Festival in Arizona, with more live shows to be added.
