HAIM, the insanely-cool sister trio from Los Angeles have been wearing suits and strutting their stuff since 2012, and it just keeps getting better. With their short hiatus after their sophomore album over, HAIM returned to release their third studio album, Women In Music Pt III, in June of 2020. The album was received extremely well by fans and critics, with their single ‘Summer Girl‘ having over 40 million streams on Spotify. The release of the album led to an extremely successful year for the sisters, with two GRAMMY nominations and winning the BRIT Award for Best International Group – finally! Now they’re back with their latest release, for the upcoming Netflix drop, The Last Letter From Your Lover, and we’re obsessed!
Now HAIM are ready to welcome summer, with their pretty song ‘Cherry Flavored Stomach Ache.’ The track features a fun, upbeat melody that is accompanied by the most delicate vocals, and it’s addictive! The track comes from the soundtrack of Netflix’s upcoming film – The Last Letter From Your Lover, arriving on July 23rd (not like we’re counting down the days or anything!).
The film is based on JoJo Moyes’ novel of the same name, and tells the story of Ellie Haworth (Felicity Jones), an ambitious journalist who discovers a trove of secret love letters from 1965, and whilst uncovering the mystery, a love story of Ellie’s own begins to unfold.
When creating the soundtrack for the film, producers went to director Augustine Frizzell, who listed HAIM as her favorite artist – and they immediately agreed to write the track – a dream come true!
I’m a huge fan of their music… It has a feel that’s both modern and retro and felt like Ellie’s world.Director Augustine Frizzell.
‘Cherry Flavored Stomach Ache’ was written and produced specifically for The Last Letter From Your Lover, by HAIM and Ariel Rechtshaid – a dream couple! When discussing the song, HAIM explained that “the scene we were making the song for was all about movement, so we felt like we needed a traveling beat, which spurred the initial idea. Augustine said she wanted something playful, so it was really a collaborative effort.” Well, we can definitely hear the playfulness of the song – and we can’t wait to see it in full swing when the film is released! But for now, we’ll be streaming the lyric video nonstop! You can join us below!
After a very successful year (but being stuck at home), HAIM are finally set to return to the live stage for their first headlining show at the famed Santa Barbara Bowl on Friday, September 17, 2021 – well done! Internationally, the band will head back to the UK for a series of six already announced shows that kick off in Glasgow on September 23 and run through to September 30, where they’ll play their largest ever headlining show at London’s O2 Arena – and we’ll be there! You can get tickets for the UK tour here.
Keep streaming the new track, and mark your calendars for July 23rd, to hear HAIM in The Last Letter From Your Lover when it arrives on Netflix. After you’ve watched, let us know your thoughts in the comments below or tweet us over at @TheHoneyPop.
