“I do music videos because the HAIM girls are in my life,” Anderson recently told The Playlist about their creative collaboration. “As long as they’re around, I’ll hopefully be doing music videos for them. That’s one of the best creative relationships I’ve had in a while. I love those girls. I hope to do their whole filmography. I love them. It’s great music, they’re super charismatic to film. Everything we do is like a home movie because it’s a very familial type situation.”

Anderson’s Best Director nomination is one of six awards “Phantom Thread” will compete for at the 90th Academy Awards. The drama is also nominated for Best Picture. You can watch Anderson’s latest HAIM video.
