Days Are Gone

The group releases their debut record, Days Are Gone. The record features 11 tracks that include the singles Forever and The Wire. The album is a collaboration between the band and producers James Ford, Ludwig Göransson and Ariel Rechtshaid.

Danielle Haim:

I think each song has its own story. I don’t think there was an overarching feeling for the record. I think the overarching theme was to make it sound like a band. But the feeling really does go from song to song.

Single Release

Alana:

We were so badly burned by (The Wire) that song. We recorded it five or six times before, and hated it. One little sound can make it so f-cking cheesy.

Falling

Single Release

Haim releases their 3rd single, Falling. The single is a collaboration with writer Morgan Meyn Nagler and producer Ariel Rechtshaid and is on their album Days Are Gone.

Este on the bass lines in the song:

If I Could Change Your Mind was a challenge for me because it’s all fast 16th notes. Trying to make it funky without a pick was a little difficult. That and Falling are the two funkiest songs on the record. Writing those bass lines was really, really fun.

(The song) is kind of up to you what it’s about. We wrote it around the time we got signed. We spent so long trying to get signed … and when we finally did there was all of this pressure and it was kind of like well is it or is it not?

The song is about growing up and struggling to come to terms with the 9-5 steady existence. Its about a discomfort with routine and a longing for a bit of chaos .

Stand With Governor Walker

Shulfer, a Walker supporter, releases a song to show support for Walker during the recall campaign.

When we faced an uphill climb, with a future not too bright. There was one man for the time, who was promising to fight. He would stand up for us all, when he tamed the status quo. And now he’s standing ten-feet tall, from Ashland to Monroe. We will stand with Governor Walker.

Papa Don’t Preach

Single Release

The artist releases her song, Papa Don’t Preach, from True Blue.

It just fit right in with my own personal zeitgeist of standing up to male authorities, whether it’s the pope or the Catholic Church or my father and his conservative, patriarchal ways.

California Girls music video

Lee Roth releases the music video for Californa Girls. The video features a variety of models who represent the different states. In an interview with Howard Stern, Roth explained that he edited the video while wearing thick skiing goggles which greatly impaired his vision. Each time the editor would increase the red saturation, Roth would tell him to turn it higher, until finally proclaiming, “Now THAT’S red!”

Follow You, Follow Me

Single Release

The band release Follow You, Follow Me, from the album …And Then There Were Three. The music is written by Banks, Collins and Rutherford, with lyrics by Rutherford. Collins has described the song as a great rhythm track and claims it was not intended to be a hit single. Banks:

It was our only truly group-written number. Mike played the riff, then I started playing a chord sequence and melody line on it, which Phil then centralized around. It worked so well as a very simple thing; it was enough as it stood. I’d just written a simple love lyric for Many Too Many, and I think Mike was keen to try the same thing. Maybe Follow You Follow Me was almost too banal, but I got used to it. I think we find it much easier to write long stories than simple love songs.

Ripples music video

The band release the video for Ripples from Trick of the Tail. Hackett:

We never did actually perform Ripples live whilst I was in the band. Ripples I thought was one of the best tracks on Trick of The Tail. I thought it had something interesting about it. Mainly, for the guitar combinations to be honest. The 12-string work, from Mike (Rutherford) and myself, and the thing that sounds like a backwards guitar solo which was played forwards but was a sign of things to come.

Trick of the Tail

Single Release

The band release the single Trick of the Tail, their first single featuring Collins, and the first to have an accompanying video. Banks wrote the majority of the song in 1972 and it was originally intended for Foxtrot. The lyrics are inspired by the book The Inheritors by William Golding. The video features the band playing around a piano, and appearing in miniature inside the piano. Collins:

Trick of the Tail is probably the most embarrassing video I have ever been in. It was a very small me running up and down a piano. You know when you look back and think, ‘Who told me to do that? whose lapse of taste was that? Was it mine?’ I think it was a mixture of me and the director…and the other guys. Everyone must be blamed.

Genesis – a trick of the tail.
