Este Haim – the eldest sister and bassist in the band HAIM – is continuing her foray into film and TV with a new role. Este has been credited as the executive music producer for the upcoming National Geographic series A Small Light.
She'll be joined by composer Ariel Marx in creating the soundtrack to the Disney+ and National Geographic series that focuses on Miep Gies, the Dutch woman who hid Anne Frank and her family during the Holocaust of World War II.
The soundtrack will include covers of classic hits from artists like Este's sister and bandmate Danielle Haim, along with Kamasi Washington, Angel Olsen, Weyes Blood, Remi Wolf, and Moses Sumney. The soundtrack will also feature duets between Sharon Van Etten and Sopranos star Michael Imperioli as well as King Princess and Orville Peck.
“I can’t begin to express what an honour and a privilege it is to be a part of this series, especially as my first role as an EMP,” shared Este. “Miep’s story is one of a modern woman standing up for what is right, and that should continue to inspire all of us. I am so thrilled to be able to help bring this to life through the power of music.”
Each week, two songs from A Small Light will be made available to stream. Those songs will then be collected into a soundtrack album when the show ends. A Small Light is set to premiere on May 1 on National Geographic, Disney+, and Hulu. The soundtrack album A Small Light: Songs From the Limited Series will drop on May 23.
Este's executive music producer credit is the latest she's gained in various behind-the-scenes music work. Besides A Small Light, she's recently served as an on-camera music consultant for the second season of The White Lotus, and composed tracks for Cooper Raiff's Cha Cha Real Smooth and Netflix's Do Revenge. In front of the camera, she played an alternate version of herself alongside sister Alana Haim in Paul Thomas Anderson's 2021 flick Licorice Pizza.
As for other HAIM news, the trio are set to headline London’s All Points East 2023 festival this summer. Earlier this year, they shared news they were working on a fourth album. Their last release was 2020’s critically-acclaimed Women In Music Pt. III.
