HAIM releases a new song and video titled Summer Girl. Available for download and streaming, Summer Girl is the band’s first new music since 2017’s Something to Tell You.
In the clip, we see Daneille Haim leading her sisters Alana and Este through the streets of Los Angeles, shedding layers of clothing along the way. “And you always know, I’m your summer girl,” Danielle sings, occasionally turning around to glance at a saxophonist following her. She eventually confronts him behind the glass of a ticket booth at the New Beverly Cinema, dressed in uniform. “Walk beside me, not behind me,” she advises, “Feel my unconditional love.”
“I started the song when I found out my partner had cancer,” Danielle said in a statement. “I was on tour and felt like I was trying to send positive energy his way almost telepathically. Whenever I would come home in between shows I wanted to be his sunshine – his summer when he was feeling dark. His hope when he was feeling hopeless.”
“Summer Girl” was debuted earlier this month when the group performed the song live in concert.
