Over the last several weeks, the world has changed pretty quickly. And for HAIM, those changes meant the band had to make the tough decision to postpone its upcoming album, Women In Music Pt. III, until later this summer. But even though the sisters of HAIM can't tour right now, they're still around to chat. Danielle, Alana and Este of HAIM joined me from where they're self-isolating to discuss that decision and to talk about the songs they've already released from the record. Even though they can't all be together right now, you can still hear the love and support between them, and that's a theme that carries over into their new music. I chat with HAIM in just a moment, but first, from the forthcoming record, we start the session off with a performance of "Summer Girl."
