Released back in June, Los Angeles-based indie/rock trio Haim reached a high note with Women in Music Pt. III, the group’s follow-up to 2017’s Something To Tell You and third full-length album overall.

The record garnered heavy acclaim and eventually earned Haim a Grammy nomination — for Album of the Year, no less — and today, an expanded version of the album was released to capitalize on the momentum.

The new edition of Women in Music Part. III features two noteworthy collaborations. Showing up for an update on “Gasoline” is Taylor Swift:

Listening to Women in Music Pt. III, it’s obvious that lack of boundaries was the best thing to happen to the band for this record. The album’s 13 songs defy the “boxing-in” that can come with sticking to a specific genre, allowing their creativity to breathe and expand accordingly.
