Haim have said that they will be taking inspiration from Kanye West when writing new material.

The band, who went to Number One in the UK Official Albums Chart with their debut album 'Days Are Gone', said that they are now ready for "something new" this year.

"We've had the craziest year, and now we're at the point where we're ready for something new. We're excited about it," Alana Haim told Rolling Stone.

They will be looking to Kanye West for inspiration, she continued. "We're always writing and figuring out new vibes and trying to get our inner Kanyes out," she said. Her sister Este added: "We're going to tap into our inner Kanye."

Speaking about West's latest album 'Yeezus', Alana said: "It's a fucking masterpiece. I have yet to see Kanye not put out an amazing record – and people don't understand how hard that is. To make record after record and come out with something new and push the boundaries and have it succeed every single time is insane. If I could choose any brain to just chill in, for, like, 10 minutes, it'd be Kanye's. I just want to see what goes on up there. Because he's a genius."

Yesterday, it was announced that Haim are nominated for Best International Group award at the 2014 Brit Awards along with Kings of Leon, Daft Punk and Arcade Fire.

The ceremony will take place on February 19 at London's O2 Arena and will be broadcast on ITV. Other acts nominated include Bastille and Disclosure, who are up against Arctic Monkeys in the British Group category, whilst David Bowie and James Blake will compete with Jake Bugg for British Male Solo Artist.
