Haim unveil mellow new cut "Summer Girl"

Haim have returned with their first single of the year "Summer Girl".

"Summer Girl" is Haim's first single since their 2017 album Something To Tell You.

It's co-produced by Rostam Batmanglij and Ariel Rechtshaid, and is inspired by Danielle Haim's partner's cancer diagnosis. She says, "I started the song when I found out my partner had cancer. I was on tour and felt like I was trying to send positive energy his way almost telepathically. Whenever I would come home in between shows I wanted to be his sunshine - his summer when he was feeling dark. His hope when he was feeling hopeless."

Back in April Haim revealed some details about their third album on Instagram, writing, "some of it is raw as fuck, some of it is for the dance floor, some of it is us just getting weird."

The three-piece are also due to feature on Charli XCX's forthcoming album Charli.

Haim's new single "Summer Girl" is out now.
