Haim time begins now in earnest. The SoCal sister act spent 2019 easing back into the recording process, kicking out new singles without any particular album timeline. That yielded an impressively diverse set of tracks including “Summer Girl,” “Now I’m In It,” and “Hallelujah,” each accompanied by a Paul Thomas Anderson music video. But it always seemed inevitable that this process would lead to a third Haim LP, and indeed it has.
On social media over the weekend, Haim began teasing a new album with the abbreviation WIMPIII. Today they’ve revealed what it stands for: Women In Music Pt.III. It’s out 4/24, with production by Danielle Haim, Rostam, and Ariel Rechtshaid. That’s the cover art above, a photo shot by Paul Thomas Anderson. Tomorrow they’ll release a new single called “The Steps.”
Haim haven’t revealed the full tracklist yet, but the album is 16 tracks long. “The Steps” is track 2, and last year’s singles are the last three songs on the album, sequenced “Now I’m In It” –> “Hallelujah” –> “Summer Girl.” Despite the backloading, they aren’t listed as bonus tracks.
Women In Music Pt.III is out 4/24 on Columbia. Pre-order it here.
