Haim offered up another preview of their much anticipated sophomore album Something to Tell You with the regretful “Want You Back.”
“I know I ran you down / So you ran away with your heart / But just know I want you back,” Danielle Haim sings on the Ariel Rechtshaid-produced track. “I’ll take the fall and fault in this / I’ll give you all the loving I never gave before I left you.”
“Want You Back” leans heavily on Haim’s Tom Petty and Fleetwood Mac influences, while hitmaker Rechtshaid, who previously worked on Haim’s 2013 debut LP Days Are Gone, gives the track a Hot 100-ready sheen.
“Want You Back” follows the Haim’s Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video for “Right Now.”
Speaking to Rolling Stone about the personal nature of tracks like “Want You Back” and “Right Now,” Danielle Haim said, “If I’m feeling some type of way and we start to write, I don’t fully understand my feelings until the song’s done and out in the world. That’s how it was with the last album. I think I’m gonna start to figure out what a lot of these new songs mean in two months, or something.”
Haim have also promised to debut their new music live when the trio serve as musical guests on the Melissa McCarthy-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live.
