Haim have announced their second album and shared a video featuring a new song. Something to Tell You, the follow up to 2013’s excellent Days Are Gone, will arrive July 7. The video, a live studio recording of new song “Right Now,” is directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. Check it out below. Anderson has history with the Haim family: Below, hear the unlikely story of how the sisters’ mom came to be his school-teacher, from the band’s new interview with Beats 1. Este also recounts serving Melissa McCarthy, who will host them on “SNL” next month, as a waitress at a burger restaurant. Earlier this year, Haim teased their new music by putting up billboards worldwide and sharing a pair of short trailers. They are set to perform on May 13 episode of “SNL.”
Revisit Pitchfork’s 2013 interview with Haim.
My mom was studying to be a teacher and to get your credential as a teacher you have to shadow another teacher and get your hours in. My mom gets a gig teaching credential gig at a school in the Valley. First twist: My mom is shadowing the teacher at the school. First week, the teacher has a heart attack in the in the parking lot of the school and my mom becomes the sole art teacher at this school. In one week. My mom was younger than me, like 22/23, and she now has 5 or 6 classes of kids that she now is the teacher for. She would always talk about this one kid named Paul. That she loved this kid Paul, he was very energetic, artistic, vivacious. We'd turn the TV on and Boogie Nights would come on or Magnolia and our mom was like, 'oh that’s Paul’s movie.' That being Paul Thomas Anderson. We were like, Mom are you talking about Paul Thomas Anderson? And she was like, 'Yes that is Paul, I taught Paul.'
