Haim Reveals New Album Details on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Interview
Today (Oct. 30), in an interview on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show, Haim announced a launch date for the group's very own Apple Music program and gave fans a few sparse details on the soon-to-be-completed sophomore album.
The sisters are set to premiere their Beats 1 program, titled Haim Time, next Thursday (Nov. 5) at 10 p.m. EST, where (hopefully) fans will get some more details about the follow-up to their popular and critically acclaimed debut album, Days Are Gone.
However, all we know for now is that the band is working on the new effort "every day," and that the "album's well underway."
"The oven is pre-heated and the oven door is open," the band members said during the interview according to Pitchfork. "The fish fingers are in the tray."
Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij shared some studio footage to his Instagram account of Danielle Haim wailing away behind the scenes. This would imply that Batmanglij might be involved with the recording of the album in some capacity. Batmanglij has been friends with the sisters for some time now, even posting a Vine from 2013 about how he's the fourth Haim sister. So while it's possible he was just stopping by to say "Hi," it would be an oversight not to use his talents on the recording. Watch the brief clip below.
Aside from giving fans a small spattering of details from the studio, the sisters were also the featured guests on Lowe's special Halloween themed program, which had the band taking control for a portion of the show and spinning tracks from artists spanning from Kanye West to Rick James.
Haim's sophomore album is so highly anticipated because the band's debut album was such an unexpected success. Days Are Gone peaked at No 6. on the Billboard 200 albums chart, was featured within the top 10 on many critics' end of the year lists and allowed them to land an opening spot on Taylor Swift's 1989 Tour.
