Haim has shared the video for their new single “Lost Track,” directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. Anderson has previously directed videos for Haim for the tracks “Night So Long,” “Right Now,” and “Little Of Your Love.” The visual for “Lost Track” finds the band joining a 1950s social club, turning into ladies who lunch alongside friends and family of the acclaimed film director.
In an Instagram post, Haim explained the inspiration for the song, noting they had the last line of the chorus 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 @wmag 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.”
Haim will will be touring across North American beginning next month in support of its 2020 album Women In Music Part III, kicking-off in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 24 and conclude in Bend, Oregon on June 14.
