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 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. — AFP
