The collab Haim and Jai Paul fans have been waiting for may be arriving soon! During a BBC Radio 6 Music interview, the Haim sisters teased they “may or may not have been in the studio" with Paul while working on a new album.
For context: the musical sisters were on a new episode of Lauren Laverne’s BBC Radio 6 Music show to discuss their All Points East performance, the tenth anniversary of Days Are Gone, and more. The trio played some early 2010s songs while there, including Jai Paul’s “Jasmine.” At one point, Laverne asked the group, “What can you tell us about future plans? Looking ahead, will there be a new album soon?”
The Haim sisters replied with various answers, “Hopefully”; “We’ve been working with some cool people”; “We played Jai Paul earlier; we might’ve been in the studio with him”; “We may or may not have been in the studio with him”; and, “Cannot confirm or deny.”
Haim's love for Jai Paul is well-documented. Danielle Haim shouted out Paul in The Wall Street Journal in 2014. The year before that, a Haim feature in The Fader included an anecdote that read, "Nested in a booth, Danielle tells a story about emailing the enigmatic British producer Jai Paul last year to express her admiration—the only time she says she’s done this—and invite him to a show. He responded three weeks later and had only nice things to say about her band."
After years of being recognized in the indie music scene, Jai Paul finally made his live debut earlier this year at the Coachella. He followed the California performances with shows in New York and London, and has more concerts lined up for later this year.
As for the Haim sisters, they recently finished their gig as the opening act for Taylor Swift on her Eras Tour. In May, they appeared on Sesame Street. Their last album was Women in Music Pt. III, which was dropped in 2020.
