Haim have announced that their upcoming album, Women in Music Part III, will have its release delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The band shared the news via Twitter, writing: “we’re on day 11 of quarantine, which has given us a lot of time to think. We’ve been talking every day for hours about our upcoming album and how we want to present it to you guys. Due to everything that is going on with COVID-19 and the changing nature of travel policies and quarantines across the world, we’ve decided it best to postpone the release of Women in Music Part III to later this summer.
“We can’t wait to reschedule everything we had in mind for you all, and we can’t wait to see all of you on the road when it’s 100 percent safe to do so.”
They concluded by sharing that “In the meantime, we are gonna be dropping some new tunes.”
The LP was originally to be released on 24 April.

Haim announced the record earlier this month, also sharing a music video for the single The Steps.
In a statement about the record, Danielle Haim explained the LP’s title: “The name came to me in a dream and I woke up laughing, so I told my sisters.” Alana Haim added: “I liked it because we are literally women in music and we always get written about that way, so it seemed cool to make it our own and control the narrative. It made me think about some of our experiences more.”
