Well, this is an unexpectedly awesome way to kick the day off. Paul Thomas Anderson is currently in production on his latest film, a re-team with Daniel Day-Lewis on a drama set in the fashion world in the 1950s, so we figured we wouldn’t hear much from him anytime soon. But suddenly, this morning, a new music video dropped from the awesome band Haim — their first new music in several years — and it’s Anderson that’s directed the clip (which was shot last November).
Anderson has a few music videos on his CV (we ran down our favorites here), but only a Fiona Apple clip in 2013 and a Radiohead one more recently, so it’s exciting to see him do something like this, particularly with a band that’s a little more unexpected. The one-take beauty for “Right Now” is a gorgeous thing to look at and to listen to, and you can watch it below.
