HAIM have released a new song called ‘Feel the Thunder’ from the soundtrack to the new animated film The Croods: A New Age. The track was co-written and produced by Ariel Rechtshaid and was inspired by Guns N’ Roses. Listen to it below.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Danielle Haim said that Rechtshaid is “the biggest Guns N’ Roses fan.” She continued, “He’s obsessed with them – he went and saw them on their most recent tour a bunch of times. And so I figured that that’s what we were looking for. We were like, ‘Let’s get Ariel.’ But I’d never tried to make music like that before, so it was fully like a crazy experiment.”
Talking about the opportunity to record rock music specifically for a children’s movie, she added: “We grew up listening to rock music, pop, a healthy smattering of a ton of different kinds of music. I don’t know how often you really hear rock music in a kid’s film anymore, or rock music in general anymore.”
HAIM released their third studio album, Women in Music Pt. III, back in June. Last month, they enlisted Robert Pattison for a performance of ‘3 AM’ on Late Night with Seth Meyers and shared the Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video for ‘Man from the Magazine’.
