HAIM Releases New Song “Lost Track”
- Los Angeles-based pop rock band HAIM released a new song “Lost Track” with an accompanying music video directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.
The video was first previewed during screenings of Paul Thomas Anderson's film “Licorice Pizza”, in which HAIM's Alana Haim, who made a film debut, stars.
The song was inspired by the John O'Hara's 1934 novel “Appointment In Samarra”.
It was written by Alana Haim, Danielle Haim and Este Haim. Produced by Ariel Rechtshai, Danielle Haim and John DeBold.
HAIM shared on social media, “We had that line written for the last year but could never figure out what to do with it. We kept writing it down, not knowing where it should live. Cut to PTA shooting the director's cut issue for W Magazine with our baby sister on the cover! An opportunity arose to do a quick music component while shooting the story. Paul mentioned having the book 'Appointment in Samarra' as a possible direction. So we did some digging around the book and were inspired by the scene where the main character throws a drink in someone's face at a country club. We were inspired by the idea of someone doing something so drastic to get out of a situation they felt uncomfortable in - just to feel something. We finally remembered that lyric and wrote and recorded the song and shot the whole thing in a few days! Anyway, felt fun to do something very collaborative/ off the cuff.”
