“That’s how you f--king do it!”
Este Haim, one-third of the eponymous sister trio, yells out at the end of the band's new video for "Right Now," the first single from upcoming album Something to Tell You, to be released July 7. And it's true: this song is what we've been waiting for.
Something to Tell You is the first album of new music from Haim in four years, and "Right Now" is a slow build of a track that ends with Alana and Este drumming to a chilling close under Alana's vocals. On Zane Lowe's show Beats 1 this morning, the Haim sisters revealed that filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson — who produced the in-studio video for "Right Now" and has worked on films like There Will be Blood, Magnolia and Boogie Nights — was actually a student of their mom's.
"So we go to his house and were so nervous that in the first three seconds we say, like, word vomit: 'My mom taught you back in the day. My mom is an art teacher,'" Alana told Low. "And he was like, 'Ms. Rose?' He leaves and comes back with a painting of the mountain of Close Encounters of the Third Kind and he was like, 'I painted this with your mom. I kept it all these years and I keep [it] in my son's room,' and we were like, 'Oh my gosh.' And so that was the first connection."
