Los Angeles sister trio HAIM have shared a brand new song, “Hallelujah,” via a striking video directed by frequent collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia, There Will Be Blood). The song was co-written with singer/songwriter Tobias Jesso Jr. and co-produced by Danielle Haim, Rostam Batmanglij, and Ariel Rechtshaid. The stripped back cut features all three members of the band taking turns on lead vocals and the video features them on the stage of an empty theater, with Danielle being able to make objects move with a wave of her hand or have spotlights turn on or off with a click of her fingers. The song is out now via Columbia. Watch the video below.

Danielle Haim simply had this to say about the song in a press release: “We’ve always wanted to write a song about our bond as sisters.”

In July HAIM shared another brand new song, “Summer Girl,” also via a video directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. It was one of our Songs of the Week. Then in October they shared another brand new song, “Now I’m In It,” again via a video directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. “Now I’m In It” made it to #1 on our Songs of the Week list. Hopefully this all means a new HAIM album is on the way soon.

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

HAIM’s last album, Something to Tell You, was released in 2017 via Columbia. Since then they have collaborated with Twin Shadow and Vampire Weekend, and appeared on Jenny Lewis’ telethon.
