Band of sisters HAIM just recruited Taylor Swift for a collab in their single ‘Gasoline,’ included in the new expanded edition of their album Women in Music Part lll, released last week. This is not the first time the singer-songwriter and band join forces in a song, as HAIM joined Taylor Swift in ‘No Body, No Crime,’ a single included in her surprise album Evermore.
How the ‘Gasoline’ Remix Came to Life
Prior to the ‘Gasoline’ Remix version release, HAIM took over to Instagram to post a picture of them at a gas station, simply captioning the picture with the gas tank emoji, “⛽️”. But this wasn’t everything that the band was sharing in the picture. Fans were quick to find a number 13 in the background, which is Taylor Swift’s favorite number. Fans got the hint and quickly figured out that a collab with the singer was coming soon.
HAIM shared to their Instagram account how the collaboration came to life. “Since we released wimpiii in june, taylor had always told us that gasoline was her favorite. so when we were thinking about ways to reimagine some of the tracks from the record, we immediately thought of her. she brought such amazing ideas and new imagery to the song and truly gave it a new life. thank you @taylorswift for adding your incredible voice and spirit to a track that means so much to us.”
The new expanded version of Women in Music Part lll comes with two new songs including the new ‘Gasoline’ remix. Prior to the release of the album, the group’s Alana Haim shared to NME, “The whole mantra of this record is about being fearless and not holding yourself back. I feel like there are so many times when there’s that voice in your head going. ‘Be scared, be scared, stop, stop, stop,’ and with this record, we’ve shut that thing off so if one of us is like that, I have two sisters who say, ‘Keep going’.”
