Los Angeles sister trio HAIM are releasing a new album, Women In Music Pt. III, on April 24 via Columbia. Last night they stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform the album's recent single "The Steps." They also took part in a short musical sketch with Fallon that joked about the embarrassment that comes from liking a year's old Instagram post. For the performance of "The Steps" they were joined by Rostam. Watch both videos below.

Also, yesterday the band announced that they would be playing a series of shows in Delis in New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, Denver, and Los Angeles. The Women In Music Pt. III album cover was shot at Canter's Deli in Los Angeles, which is where the band played their first show. Check out the deli tour poster below, via an Instagram post from the band (just don't wait years to "like" it).

HAIM consists of sisters Danielle, Alana, and Este Haim. Women In Music Pt. III is the band's third full-length album, the follow-up to 2017's Something to Tell You. While the tracklist has yet to be shared, the album is expected to include three singles the band shared last year: "Summer Girl," "Now I'm In It," and "Hallelujah." Danielle Haim, Rostam, and Ariel Rechtshaid all produced the album and regular collaborator, and noted film director, Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, There Will Be Blood) shot the album cover.

In a previous press release Danielle said the album title "came to me in a dream and I woke up laughing so I told my sisters."

Alana added: "I liked it because we are literally women in music and we always get written about that way, so it seemed cool to make it our own and control the narrative. It made me think about some of our experiences more."

Este also had this to say: "I just thought it was funny, plus the initials are WIMP3. Wimp is a hilarious word."

In July 2019 HAIM shared a brand new song, "Summer Girl," via a video directed by frequent collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson. It was one of our Songs of the Week. Then in October 2019 they shared another brand new song, "Now I'm In It," again via a video directed by Anderson. "Now I'm In It" made it to #1 on our Songs of the Week list. Then in November 2019 they shared another new song, "Hallelujah," via a striking video also directed by Anderson. The song was co-written with singer/songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. and was also #1 on our Songs of the Week list.

When the album was announced they shared another song from the album, "The Steps." It was shared via video for the track co-directed by the band's Danielle Haim and Anderson. "The Steps" was also one of our Songs of the Week.

In August 2019 HAIM also teamed with Charli XCX for "Warm," a new song on her recent album, simply titled Charli.

In December 2019 HAIM also did a "Piano Session" for BBC Radio 1 where they covered Robyn's "Show Me Love" and performed "Hallelujah."

Since the release of Something to Tell You HAIM have collaborated with Twin Shadow and Vampire Weekend, and appeared on Jenny Lewis' telethon.
