Haim have unveiled their new single, ‘The Wire’.
Scroll down to listen to the new Ariel Rechtshaid produced studio version of the song, which is already a live favourite. The track will be released on September 23 and comes from Haim’s debut album, which they completed work on last week in Los Angeles. Details of the record will be released shortly.
Haim are currently on tour in Japan and return to the UK to play Reading and Leeds Festivals next month, before embarking on a number of headline US dates before supporting Phoenix on tour in Europe.
Haim‘s bass player Este Haim says she “almost died” when playing the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury last month. Este, who is diabetic, told NME after her band’s triumphant performance that she had forgotten to eat before Haim’s lunchtime set. Recalling what happened on stage, she said that her arms went numb mid-song and she thought she was going to pass out.
“I almost died,” Este said. “We were in the middle of a song and I’m diabetic and I didn’t eat before my set like a smart, good diabetic does, and I remember not being able to feel my arms, and I was like ‘This is not a normal feeling when I’m playing music’.” She continued: “And I thought that I was gonna pass out and my eyes kind of glazed over at the end of the song and I had to go offstage because I thought that I was going to die in front of 25,000 people.” She then joked that if she had died onstage it would have made for “an amazing funeral. The most beautiful way to die!”
