Paul Thomas Anderson directs the video for Haim's new song 'Summer Girl'

Haim have finally released their new single ‘Summer Girl’.

The song arrives as their first new material since 2017 and, to celebrate, with an official video directed by acclaimed filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson.

While the band debuted the song last month at the Pitchfork Festival, the official release comes as Danielle Haim details the difficult circumstances of its creation: “I started the song when I found out my partner had cancer,” she explained.

“I was on tour and felt like I was trying to send positive energy his way almost telepathically. Whenever I would come home in between shows I wanted to be his sunshine—his summer when he was feeling dark. His hope when he was feeling hopeless.”

The song, which was co-produced by Rostam and Ariel Rechtshaid, is available to stream below.
