After being forced to delay the release of their new album, Women In Music Pt.III, Haim have released their new song ‘I Know Alone’.
With an accompanying video directed remotely by Jake Schreier, the Haim sisters dance in front of a basketball hoop with a routine co-choreographed by the band and Francis Farewell Starlite.
On social media, the band explain: “The original plan was to release wimpiii later on this summer well fuck that we are gonna release it on June 26th, just in time for summer we can’t wait.”
Speaking to Beats 1, Alana Haim adds “there’s going to be more surprises from now until then.”
Detailing the new song, Danielle Haim explained in an Instagram post yesterday: “‘I know alone’ comes out tomorrow. It was always going to be the next song we wanted to show u guys from wimpiii, but it has kind of taken on a new meaning. The first lyric we wrote was ‘I know alone like no one else does’. This came from feeling like I was in the deepest spiral of being alone and feeling like I felt loneliness deeper than anyone ever had.
“I remember there were a lot of solo drives with a couple diet cokes in the passenger’s seat, going for hours at night to clear my head. Now with everything going on ‘alone’ feels like a ritual. Only I know my own little secret routine on these days of being by myself and I almost take comfort in it. It’s my own way of staying sane in my alone-ness and its really helping me get through this. I hope all this makes sense – trying to describe a song is always a little daunting for me – but I always want to let u guys know where I’m coming from. We hope that this song can bring u a little comfort in this crazy time and since we are bursting at the seams to put it out, comment and we might send you a little snippet .”
