Haim have revealed that they’ve begun work on 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”.
The photo, which also features a poster of David Bowie in the background, was then retweeted by band member Este Haim, who wrote: “Here we go again everybody”.

This isn’t the first time the band have hinted at new material. In November, Alana Haim uploaded an image to Instagram showing Danielle Haim on guitar with the caption “S S Studio”.
Haim’s debut album ‘Days Are Gone’ reached Number One in the UK on its release in September 2013. In June 2014, the band said that their new album would be ready “very soon”, after confirming that they intended to start recording it in July.
Speaking to BBC 6 Music at Glastonbury festival, keyboardist Alana Haim said: “This is the first time we’ve ever written on the road. We’re going home in a month to start recording. I promise record two won’t come in six years, it’ll come very soon.”
Meanwhile, Haim topped the list of the most Shazamed indie rock songs of 2014 with their track ‘If I Could Change Your Mind’. The song was released as a single in March 2014 and featured a video showing the three Haim sisters performing a synchronised dance routine.
