NEW YORK: Haim, the pop band of three California sisters who found a ready fan base with a debut album four years ago, on Thursday (Friday in Manila) announced a long-awaited follow-up.
The band said Something To Tell You will come out July 7 and broke the news Wednesday night with a small gig at a Los Angeles deli where the sisters first performed as children.
Haim released a first song, “Right Now,” that moves the band’s pop sound in a trippier direction, with a syncopated rhythm over the piano leading to a dark baritone saxophone.
The band—made up of sisters Alana, Danielle and Este Haim—was described as a latter-day Fleetwood Mac when it released its debut album Days Are Gone in 2013.
Haim won a growing fan base with appearances at the world’s leading festivals— plus a collaboration with Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks.
As with Days Are Gone, Haim said it worked on the latest album with producer Ariel Rechtshaid—who in 2015 recorded Adele’s hit “When We Were Young.”
The band also worked on the latest album with Rostam Batmanglij, best known for his alternative rock band Vampire Weekend.
