HAIM Launches New Album 'Women In Music Pt. III' With Online Fundraiser
To celebrate the release of their new album Women In Music Pt. III, HAIM performed a special set which was livestreamed on their official YouTube channel.
The online gig served as a fundraiser for the Bail Project, a nonprofit organization that pays bail for people in need and helps fight against mass incarceration. It was held at the same place where director Paul Thomas Anderson shot their latest album cover, the L.A. deli Canter's which was also the venue of the sisters' very first show.
The almost 30-song set included fresh tracks like "Summer Girl", "The Steps", "Don’t Wanna", "Man From The Magazine", "Gasoline", and "I’ve Been Down".
The band wrote a lengthy post on Instagram about the release of Women In Music Pt. III. "wimpiii is finally out in the world. feeling pretty emotional rn. there’s so many people to thank that made this record happen but we’ll try to keep it brief lol. first of all - we want to thank all of you who have been here from the jump. It was scary to open up this much on record but with all your support it made us feel safe to tell our stories."
