After taking to Instagram to announce their new album Women in Music Pt. III yesterday, sister trio HAIM have shared a video for their new single, “The Steps.”
“The Steps” is a bit grittier than HAIM’s previously released singles “Now I’m In It,” “Hallelujah,” and “Summer Girl,” with more of a driven guitar riff and wailing vocals. The accompanying video, which was co-directed by singer Danielle Haim and Paul Thomas Anderson, follows each member of HAIM as they get ready to start their days, brushing their teeth and smudging their lipstick before going for a swim and playing the drums.
“The name came to me in a dream and I woke up laughing so I told my sisters,” Danielle explains of the album. “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,” Alana added before Este chimed in by saying, “I just thought it was funny, plus the initials are WIMP3. Wimp is a hilarious word.
Watch the video for “The Steps” below.
Women in Music Pt. III is set for release on April 24th via Columbia Records.
