In this episode, John catches up with Danielle from Haim along with co-producers Ariel Rechtshaid and Rostam Batmanglij to talk about how they wrote, recorded and produced Haim’s latest album ‘Women in Music Pt. III’.
With recordings of jams, writing sessions and iPhone Garageband demos, Danielle, Ariel and Rostam pull apart their creative process, exploring the inspiration behind their ideas and what they did to bring them to life.
From hearing song ideas through the floor to finding a fix for everyone’s demoitus, the trio treat us to an absolute masterclass in song writing.
Listen to find out how they emulated a booty call on the bass, why they auditioned people for a phone call recording, and how Bono almost made it on to the album.
Tracks discussed: Gasoline, 3am, The Steps
