Haim Reflect On Isolation With Their Latest Single, ‘I Know Alone’

Last month, Haim made the tough choice to postpone their upcoming album, Women In Music Pt. III, to “later this summer,” with an exact new date yet to be revealed. In the meantime, the group is still rolling out the new album, and today, they’ve shared “I Know Alone.” The video for the track (which was “directed remotely by Jake Schreier” and “choreographed remotely by Francis And The Lights & Haim”) sees the three sisters dancing along to the song on a faded outdoor basketball court.

As the group noted in a social media post ahead of the track, the song is thematically appropriate given the state of the world, and has gained new meaning during these quarantining times, even though it was penned before them:

“‘I know alone’ comes out tomorrow. it was always going to be the next song we wanted to show u guys from wimpiii, but it has kind of taken on a new meaning. the first lyric we wrote was ‘i know alone like no one else does’. this came from feeling like I was in the deepest spiral of being alone and feeling like i felt loneliness deeper than anyone ever had . i remember there were a lot of solo drives with a couple diet cokes in the passengers seat, going for hours at night to clear my head. Now with everything going on ‘alone’ feels like a ritual. only I know my own little secret routine on these days of being by myself and I almost take comfort in it. It’s my own way of staying sane in my alone-ness and it’s really helping me get through this. I hope all this makes sense- trying to describe a song is always a little daunting for me – but I always want to let u guys know where I’m coming from.”
