Haim were revealed as Beats 1 hosts at the end of last month, when the band appeared on Pharrell’s OTHERtone show, where they also revealed that they are currently working on a new album.

The Californian sisters hinted that they might call their radio slot ‘Haim Time’ as they join the likes of St Vincent, Elton John, Josh Homme and Disclosure, who have all been made Beats 1 radio hosts.

In January, the band confirmed rumours of a second album by tweeting a photo of producer Ariel Rechtshaid hard at work in front of a computer with the accompanying message “Uh ohz”.
