The ‘I Know Alone’ hitmakers have said they’re “so into” the singer – who they also dubbed an “icon” – and credited her decades-long career with inspiring them to start their own music journey.
Danielle Haim said: “I mean, I’ve always been so into Madonna and everything that she is and everything she’s like, I don’t know. I just think she’s a icon and I’ve been super into Ray of Light. Like that was like a huge inspiration on ‘Women in Music Pt. III’ – It’s just, everything about it. So amazing.
“I feel like Music is underrated and that’s the album that this next song is from, but also the song is so good. I honestly, I cried like for a while, like every morning I’d play it and I’d like, cry to it – No, but just the whole sentiment. Like, do you know what it feels like for a girl? Like it’s just … and the way that it’s written and all the sound, it’s just a great song.”
The band – made up of sisters Danielle, Este, and Alana – are gearing up to release their third album, ‘Women in Music Pt. III’, in June, and although they had finished work on the record prior to the lockdown imposed by the coronavirus pandemic, they chose to delay the release until the “initial shock” of the health crisis had subsided.
