They announced the new songs on their Instagram account on Thursday, February 18. "gasoline (feat. taylor swift) + 3 am (feat. thundercat) out now!!" the "Feel the Under" hitmaker excitely revealed. Sharing an interesting behind-the-scenes anecdote about their collaboration with the "Cardigan" singer, they penned, "since we released wimpiii in june, taylor had always told us that gasoline was her favorite."
"so when we were thinking about ways to reimagine some of the tracks from the record, we immediately thought of her," HAIM further explained. "she brought such amazing ideas and new imagery to the song and truly gave it a new life. thank you @taylorswift for adding your incredible voice and spirit to a track that means so much to us."
As for Thundercat, the group wrote, "we've known thundercat since 2013, and since then we've always talked about collaborating on something. so this past december, we were in the studio working on a cover and at the end of the session este mentioned that we'd always imagined 3 am as a duet. minutes later thundercat hopped on the song and put his magical twist on it. thank you @thundercatmusic for always keeping us laughing and sending us the best memes. we are ready for dragonball durag pt. 2."
This is not the first time for Taylor to collaborate with the sisters. The "Evermore" artist previously worked with Este Haim and Daniel Haim for "No Body, No Crime", one of the tracks included in her chart-topping album "Evermore".
