Watch Haim release new song ‘Lost Track’

Accompanied by a video directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.

Following their screen debut in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Licorice Pizza, Haim have released new song ‘Lost Track’ alongside its accompanying PTA-directed video, which was shown to US cinema audiences ahead of Licorice Pizza screenings.

Posting the track’s lyric “I’ll never get back what I lost track of” on Instagram, Haim say, “We had that line written for the last year but could never figure out what to do with it. We kept writing it down, not knowing where it should live. Cut to PTA shooting the director’s cut issue for W Mag with our baby sister on the cover! An opportunity arose to do a quick music component while shooting the story. Paul mentioned having the book ‘Appointment in Samarrra’ as a possible direction. So we did some digging around the book and were inspired by the scene where the main character throws a drink in someone’s face at a country club. We were inspired by the idea of someone doing something so drastic to get out of a situation they felt uncomfortable in - just to feel something. We finally remembered that lyric and wrote and recorded the song and shot the whole thing in a few days! Anyway, felt fun to do something very collaborative/ off the cuff.”
