Haim: Hallelujah – újabb kislemezdal Paul Thomas Anderson-klippel

2019. november 18., 22:26

A kaliforniai Haim lányok a 2017-es Something To Tell You nagylemezük és az azt követő U2-Twin Shadow-Dirty Projectors-The Lonely Island-Charli XCX- és Vampire Weekend-kollaborációk után 2019 második felében egy sor klipdallal kezdték felvezetni közelgő harmadik albumukat: a Summer Girl és a Now I’m In It mellé most harmadikként itt a Hallelujah kislemezdal, melyhez szintén Paul Thomas Anderson rendezett videót a három nővérnek.

A lányok a kanadai zongorista-énekes Tobias Jesso Jr.-ral közösen írt, és két fő producerükkel, Ariel Rechtshaiddal és a Vampire Weekend-extag Rostammal rögzített Hallelujah-ba – az előző két kislemezdalukhoz hasonlóan –  ismét komoly témákat rejtettek: a gitáros-énekesnő Danielle Haim a testvérek közti szinte telepatikus kapcsolatról írta versszakát (ami a klip alapötletét is adta), a basszista-vokalista Este Haim a cukorbetegségével való küzdelmében húgaitól kapott támogatásról énekel, a billentyűs-gitáros-vokalista Alana Haim pedig húszévesen autóbalesetben elhunyt legjobb barátnőjéről, Sammi Kane Kraftről (akinek SKK monogramját gitárjára is ráragasztotta).

I met two angels but they were in disguise
Took one look to realize
Tell ‘em anything and they will sympathize
These arms hold me tight
Old fears, helped to ease them in my mind
New tears say that they will dry in time

Why me? How’d I get this hallelujah?
Hallelujah

Laughing together like our thoughts are harmonized
Been that way since ‘95
Give me direction when it is hard to fight
Three roads, one light
Now and then I can lean my back to yours
Travelin’ like our feet don’t touch the floor

Why me? How’d I get this hallelujah?
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Why me? How’d I get this hallelujah?

I had a best friend but she has come to pass
One I wish I could see now
You always remind me that memories will last
These arms reach out
You were there to protect me like a shield
Long hair running with me through the field
Everywhere you’ve been with me all along

Why me? How’d I get this hallelujah?
Why me? How’d I get this hallelujah?
Why me? How’d I get this hallelujah?
Hallelujah

our new song hallelujah comes out tomorrow. to me it’s a song about relying on the people around you and reflecting on how different life could be if those people weren’t around. i wrote my verse a few days after i’d gotten some pretty terrible news from my endocrinologist. around that time i wasn’t paying attention to my health and ignoring warning signs of a bigger issue than just my type 1 diabetes. it’s an easy trap to fall into. Some diabetics go through what doctors call “diabetic burnout” where the patient essentially stops taking care of themselves because it becomes too stressful, too time consuming, too frustrating to deal with day in and day out. at the time i was feeling like type 1 diabetes was a 24 hour job that i wasn’t allowed to clock out of. i came home from the doctor super upset and frustrated and the only two people i felt comfortable enough to talk about it with were danielle and alana. sometimes it feels like they’re the only two people that truly understand me and support me when i feel like giving up. they’ve been with me everyday supporting me and cheering me on since i was diagnosed at 14 years old. and i don’t know what i would do without them always reminding me when my blood sugar is taking it’s toll on me that i’m “more than my highs and my lows, you got this E”. this song is for anyone struggling with chronic illness and the people around us who we truly rely on for help and guidance.

We have a song called hallelujah coming out on Monday. It’s a song about family, love, loss, and being thankful for it all. It’s hard to talk about my verse in the song but I wanted to open up about it so here i go… I went through a really dark time when I was 20. I woke up on a hazy October morning to find out that my best friend, Sammi Kane Kraft, had passed away in a tragic car accident. It was a loss that changed my life forever. Sammi was my everything, and coming to terms with the fact that she wasn’t here, that i couldn’t call her, i couldn’t hug her, I would never see her bright smile and sparkling eyes ever again broke me. Its strange but i started thinking about all the milestones in my life that she would never be a part of- like us wanting to celebrate our 21st birthdays in Vegas, or planning all the festivals we wanted to go to around the world, or knowing that when i walk down the aisle at some point she won’t be standing next to me as my maid of honor. I had always wanted to pay tribute to her in some way and i could never put how important she was into words. It felt like there were no words in the dictionary to encapsulate how special she was. Losing her put a lot of things in to perspective for me. I was so lucky to have my sisters at this time in my life. There was a point where they didn’t know what to do or say or how to help and them just being there as a shoulder to cry on or as an ear to talk to got me to slowly recover. I’m not the same, I’ll never be the same. The me before took love, friends and family for granted. Now there won’t be a day that goes by where i don’t tell everyone i love how special they are to me. Though I miss her everyday I know she’s still here sending me little messages, little signs everywhere i go. I always look up and go I hear ya Sammi Sam! Love love love love love you too. Hallelujah comes out Monday and I can’t wait for you all to hear it.
