‘Cherry Flavored Stomach Ache’ will appear in the film The Last Letter Of Your Love, due out on Netflix next Friday (July 23) with a limited run in UK cinemas slated to kick off on August 6.

In a five-star review, NME‘s Rhian Daly saying: “By breaking from what the world might expect from them and letting themselves do whatever the hell they want, they have produced a record that’s experimental, soothing and vulnerable; it’s a thing of great beauty.”
Haim also delivered a livestreamed acoustic performance dubbed ‘An Evening With Haim’ and a standalone single titled ‘Christmas Wrapping 2020 (All I Want For Christmas Is A Vaccine)’.
Last September, it was announced member Alana Haim would have a lead role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film, tentatively titled Soggy Bottom.
Haim are set to embark on a UK headline tour next month, playing in Glasgow, Nottingham, Cardiff, Manchester and London.
