Published Nov 18, 2019HAIM have once again delivered a new song for their faithful. The track is called "Hallelujah," and it's been fit with a Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video.
The song follows the recently shared "Now I'm in It" (whose video was also directed by Anderson), and it was co-written alongside Tobias Jesso Jr. Production credits go to Ariel Rechtshaid, Rostam Batmanglij and Danielle Haim.
In a statement, Alana Haim explained her verse was a tribute to her friend Sammi Kane, who died at age 20.
"It was a loss that changed my life forever. Sammi was my everything, and coming to terms with the fact that she wasn't here, that I couldn't call her, I couldn't hug her, I would never see her bright smile and sparkling eyes ever again broke me," Alana said.
Este Haim added, "To me it's a song about relying on the people around you and reflecting on how different life could be if those people weren't around... I wrote my verse a few days after I'd gotten some pretty terrible news from my endocrinologist.... This song is for anyone struggling with chronic illness and the people around us who we truly rely on for help and guidance."

HAIM's last album was 2017's Something to Tell You.
