Haim have released a new song called “Summer Girl.” It’s co-produced by Rostam and Ariel Rechtshaid. It also arrives with a music video directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, who previously shot the band’s “Right Now,” “Little of Your Love,” and “Night So Long” videos. Check it out below.
In a press release, Danielle Haim writes, “I started the song when I found out my partner had cancer. 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.” She also noted on Twitter that the song was inspired by Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side.”
