Taylor Swift‘s new surprise album evermore is out now, and with it, her collaboration with HAIM.
The sister trio guests on a song called “no body, no crime,” a countrified ballad that finds HAIM member Este Haim at the center of a mystery involving infidelity and possible murder. You can listen to the track now via digital outlets.
“Working with the Haim sisters on ‘no body, no crime’ was pretty hilarious,” Swift tells Entertainment Weekly. “It came about after I wrote a pretty dark murder mystery song and had named the character Este, because she’s the friend I have who would be stoked to be in a song like that.”
Swift also shares that the HAIM collab has been a long time coming.
“We can’t figure out why we hadn’t collaborated sooner,” Swift says. “We’ve toured together, played live together, choreographed dances like we’re at summer camp, but it took a song about avenging your friend’s murder to give us the idea to take this step.”
“Long story short, I’m the fourth Haim sister now, confirmed,” she adds.
Evermore is the “sister” album to Swift’s other surprise album of 2020, folklore. Like folklore, evermore was recorded in collaboration with Jack Antonoff and The National‘s Aaron Dessner. The National as a whole also feature on the evermore song “coney island.”
