HAIM have released another new single from their forthcoming album Women In Music Pt. III. "I Know Alone" is streaming above alongside a video directed by Jake Schrier. The band have also confirmed a new release date for the record: it's out June 26.
“The first lyric we wrote was ‘I know alone like no one else does,'” lead singer Danielle Haim wrote of the song on Instagram. “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 of Diet Cokes in the passengers’ seat, going for hours at night to clear my head.”
“Now with everything going on, ‘alone’ feels like a ritual,” Haim continued, “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 aloneness and it’s 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 you guys know where I’m coming from.”
Women In Music Pt. III was originally scheduled to come out last week, but was pushed back to later in the summer after the world went into lockdown. Before today they'd released "The Steps," "Hallelujah," and "Now I'm In It."
