HAIM have shared a new video for ‘Don’t Wanna’, taken from their recently released third studio album, Women in Music Pt. III. Directed by Jake Schreier, the new video was filmed in the empty parking lot of the Forum in Los Angeles, where the sisters can be seen playfully chasing each other. Check it out below.
They shared the video on social media, writing: “We were so excited to headline the Forum on our upcoming tour – but when quarantine hit, we had to change our plans. Thank you to the the Forum for letting us run around in your parking lot tho.”
The track is the sixth song the band released ahead of the release of their new album, which dropped last week via Columbia. Speaking of the track, Alana Haim said in an interview with Apple Music: “I think this is classic Haim. It was one of the earlier songs which we wrote around the same time as ‘Now I’m In It.’ We always really, really loved this song, and it always kind of stuck its head out like, ‘Hey, remember me?’ It just sounded so good being simple. We can tinker around with a song for years, and with this one, every time we added something or changed it, it lost the feeling. And every time we played it, it just kind of felt good. It felt like a warm sweater.”
On Saturday, HAIM shared a video of their livestream album launch for their new record, recorded at Los Angeles deli Canter’s.
