HAIM have shared a brand-new song titled “Lost Track” with a video directed by longstanding collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson. The song was written by HAIM and produced by Danielle Haim, John DeBold and Ariel Rechtshaid.
Haim posted the track’s lyric “I’ll never get back what I lost track of” on Instagram saying, “We had that line written for the last year but could never figure out what to do with it. We kept writing it down, not knowing where it should live. Cut to PTA shooting the director’s cut issue for W Mag with our baby sister on the cover! An opportunity arose to do a quick music component while shooting the story. Paul mentioned having the book “Appointment in Samarrra” as a possible direction. So we did some digging around the book and were inspired by the scene where the main character throws a drink in someone’s face at a country club. We were inspired by the idea of someone doing something so drastic to get out of a situation they felt uncomfortable in – just to feel something. We finally remembered that lyric and wrote and recorded the song and shot the whole thing in a few days! Anyway, felt fun to do something very collaborative/ off the cuff.
“Lost Track” is the first new music released by the sister trio following their screen debut, alongside their parents, in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Academy Award-nominated Licorice Pizza. The film stars Alana Haim, who delivers an outstanding performance in her first ever acting role, attracting superlative reviews and a string of accolades including Best Actress nominations from BAFTA and Critics’ Choice.
The video for HAIM’s “Lost Track” is shared widely following its cinematic release in movie theatres in the US, where it previewed to audiences ahead of screenings of Licorice Pizza. It is the ninth video that Paul Thomas Anderson has directed for the Grammy-nominated sisters.
On April 24, HAIM will kick off the North American leg of their One More HAIM tour in support of their critically acclaimed album Women In Music, Part III. The 29-date trek runs through June and includes stops at NYC’s Madison Square Garden, Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl and a stop at Boston Calling Festival (see below for full list of dates).
