Haim have revealed in a new interview that they expect to release their long-awaited second album in Autumn. It will be the follow up to their 2013 debut, ‘Days Are Gone’.
The trio, who have been working with ex-Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij and ‘Days Are Gone’ producer Ariel Rechtshaid on their sophomore LP, say they have over 12 songs after heading into the studio to record the album in April.
Speaking in an interview with The Rolling Stone, Haim said work on it began when they were asked to write a track for a film. That turned into a song called ‘Little of Your Love’, which is set to feature on the as-yet-untitled record. Haim also revealed it will feature a track called ‘Nothing’s Wrong’.
The material on the album, which was mostly written in the same L.A. living room of the band’s parents as their debut, is said to be a personal reflection on the change in the trio’s life after finding fame through ‘Days Are Gone’, with Haim saying it is about “trying to go back to your normal life, but realizing there is a difference.”
The band debuted the two new songs at a gig in the US last month (May), when they headlined a show at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California. That came after they posted a video online in March, in which they said, “We’ve just been in the studio for so long. Like, perfecting, and trying to get it right. At this point, we just wanna go out there and play the songs live.”
