Haim released a single and music video for the song “I Know Alone” on Wednesday.
The video shows sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim performing a choreographed dance – dancing six feet apart – on a basketball court. Jake Schreier directed the video remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Danielle Haim said in an Instagram post that “I Know Alone” has taken on a new meaning since the health crisis. “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,” the singer wrote.
“Now with everything going on ‘alone’ feels like a ritual,” she said. “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 its really helping me get through this.” Danielle Hsaid she hopes the song will bring fans “a little comfort in this crazy time.”
“I Know Alone” appears on Haim’s forthcoming album, Women in Music Pt. III. The album was initially slated for release April 24th, but was delayed in March due to the pandemic. The album is now scheduled for release June 26th.
The album also features the singles “Summer Girl,” “Now I’m in It,” “Hallelujah” and “The Steps.”
