Just weeks after announcing their epic deli tour to celebrate their new album, Women in Music Pt. III, Haim have decided to postpone the release and any tours they had in the works as the coronavirus continues to spread around the world. The sisters broke the news on social media.
“We’re on day 11 of quarantine, which has given us a lot of time to think,” they tweeted. “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 ofWomen in Music Part III to later this summer.”
After explaining how the safety of their fans and crew is their number one concern, the trio expressed their eagerness to share what they've been working on and head back on tour. “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 wrote. “In the meantime, we are gonna be dropping some new tunes.”
Women in Music Pt. III was originally supposed to drop on April 24. The sisters began releasing new music over the summer with the aptly titled single "Summer Girl." Since then, they've shared "Now I'm In It," "Hallelujah," and most recently " The Steps."
