A coincidence or not, we're liking what we're hearing.
Haim have decided to gift us with a brand new single, entitled 'I Know Alone'. The new song marks the band's fifth single taken from their upcoming album 'Women in Music Pt. III', which was due to be released last week, but got pushed back until the summer.
With the sisters self-isolating together, there was no choice for the new music video other than a trademark dance routine between them, filmed on what looks like a basketball court. Directed remotely by Jake Schreier, who also directed Haim's brilliant 'Want You Back', the siblings dance to the sombre synth-heavy track.
Writing about the new single on their Instagram page, Danielle Haim said that the happenings in recent weeks has made the song take on a new meaning. Uploading a very honest photo of herself, the singer/songwriter wrote: "Now with everything going on, 'alone' feels like a ritual. 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."

“I know alone” comes out tomorrow. it was always going to be the next song we wanted to show u guys from wimpiii, but it has kind of taken on a new meaning. the first lyric we wrote was “i know alone like no one else does”. 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 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. 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 alone-ness and its 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 u guys know where I’m coming from. We hope that this song can bring u a little comfort in this crazy time and since we are bursting at the seams to put it out, comment and we might send you a little snippet ?♀️ xD
