Official audio dropped May 3rd 2017. Want You Back debuted on BBC Radio 1 on the same date and it is on their sophomore album, Something To Tell You. Yuh Yuh. Personally, I have a lot to tell all y’all which is why we keep firing with content.

Haim’s sound

Haim is pronounced Ha-eeem to rhyme with “time.” Our music researcher has informed me that their sound is a mist-mash of things. Nu-folk meets nineties RnB (allegedly). They have pedigree by way of performing at Glastonbury and signing to Jay Z’s Roc Nation Label. Want You Back is a mixture of the above sounds.

This tune is going to do what it’s going to do. Want You Back will probably feature on 15 Rom-Com’s no matter what my opinion is on it. Want You Back is some shit I’m not actively checking for. Taylor Swift shone a huge light on the reccid by shouting it out on her social media.
