It’s been four years since Haim last dropped a full body of work with 2013’s Days Are Gone, and now, it seems they are ready to unveil a fresh batch of stuff. The sister trio released their new song, “Right Now,” on Beats 1 Radio on Thursday morning, along with a live performance video.
“Right Now” is a glittery track about heartbreak — a delicate banger (if that makes sense). The song starts off minimal, with small bursts of high-hat and Danielle Haim telling the story of a lover who suddenly realizes they need her company after months of neglect. “You’re saying that you need me,” she sings, with Este Haim chiming in: “Right now / Right now.” “And now you’re saying that you need me.” The song builds into something bigger toward the end, with piano adding minimal chords and a badass drum breakdown that crashes into the lonely buzz of a synth.
“Right Now” will appear on the band’s new album, Something To Tell You, due July 7 via Columbia Records.
