Following their 2017 release, Something to Tell You, Haim's third full-length record, Women in Music Pt. III, was produced by bandmember Danielle Haim, Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend, Discovery), and Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, Adele, Madonna). It indicates a new personal and poppier direction for the sibling trio, from the sweet "Summer Girl" to the emotional heft of "Hallelujah." "I feel like what I really wanted to achieve was to really open up and be a bit more forthcoming with my feelings and emotions," Alana told Clash. The album cover was shot by their frequent collaborator and famed film director, Paul Thomas Anderson, who also helmed their music videos for "Summer Girl," "Now I'm In It" and "Night So Long." The cover art features all three Haim sisters at the famous Canters deli in Los Angeles, with the trio donning kitchen aprons, ready to serve up some cold cuts.
