HAIM Releases New Song “Now I'm In It”
- American pop rock sister band HAIM has unveiled a new song “Now I'm In It”, accompanied by a video directed by their frequent collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson, who began collaborating with the band in 2017.
The track was produced by Rostam Batmanglij and Ariel Rechtshaid, following previous song “Summer Girl”, which was released back in July.
The song may initially read as being about a breakup. But Danielle Haim said in an interview with The Guardian, “People think ‘Now I’m in It’ is a breakup song because I sing: ‘We can’t be friends’ but I’m talking about me and my mind. It was gnarly and I was not OK with myself.”
Este Haim added in a statement: “Even when we’re writing about something dark or more serious, we like to tie it up in a bow so that there’s a bit of lightness to it. We want our music, and this song especially, to be the thing that helps you get through that rough time.”
- Danielle Haim wrote on Instagram, “now i’m in it is about going through it. a depression. not leaving the house type of shit. for my sisters and i, there have been times in our lives where we have felt like we are stuck in a dark hole. this track speaks to that emotion.
the track is chaotic- like my mind when i’m spiraling. fast-talking to myself- words jumbled up. heartbeat racing. these times are hard to forget and even harder to work through. after being constantly on the go the past couple years, i didn’t wanna stop and deal with some shit. also, every day my sisters and i feel so fucking lucky that we get to do this for a living!!! it seemed like stopping and dealing with these emotions would be letting everyone down. but every time I’ve been depressed- it takes me accepting that I need help, to start to get out of it. it’s gotten a little easier as i have gotten older to recognize the symptoms and remind myself that when this happens, i need to seek help. (shout out to my therapist!!) anyway, we all know it’s important to talk about this stuff. this one poured out of us. take care of yourself. be nice to yourself. and thank the ones around you that help u everyday. hope this helps anyone who is in it right now coming Oct 30”
