Haim open up about depression while detailing “chaotic” new single ‘Now I’m In It’
Haim have announced that their new single, ‘Now I’m In It’, will be released on Wednesday, October 30, as the band ramp up anticipation around the new album.
Danielle Haim, lead guitarist of the Los Angeles-based pop rock band, has opened up about her struggles with depression, battles to leave the house and, importantly, accepting when you need help.
“A depression. Not leaving the house type of shit. For my sisters and I, there have been times in our lives where we have felt like we are stuck in a dark hole. this track speaks to that emotion,” she wrote on social media while discussing the impending new song.
“The track is chaotic – like my mind when I’m spiralling. Fast-talking to myself – words jumbled up. Heartbeat racing. These times are hard to forget and even harder to work through. After being constantly on the go the past couple years, I didn’t wanna stop and deal with some shit. Also, every day my sisters and I feel so fucking lucky that we get to do this for a living!!! It seemed like stopping and dealing with these emotions would be letting everyone down.
“But every time I’ve been depressed – it takes me accepting that I need help, to start to get out of it. It’s gotten a little easier as I have gotten older to recognise the symptoms and remind myself that when this happens, I need to seek help. (Shout out to my therapist!!).
“Anyway, we all know it’s important to talk about this stuff. This one poured out of us. take care of yourself. Be nice to yourself. And thank the ones around you that help u everyday. Hope this helps anyone who is in it right now.”
