Based on a shirt Danielle is wearing and explanations about the song, it looks like 'Man From The Magazine' is getting its own music video on October 7
Pop-rock band HAIM has taken to their social media to announce a new music video on October 5. Although it is not confirmed which song it is, the new visual is scheduled for a release on Wednesday, October 7.
"New vid wednesday," the group wrote in the caption on both Twitter and Instagram, alongside a sultry photo of lead vocalist Danielle Haim, who is seen without make-up and going braless while wearing a white top with the words "BE THE C**T" written on it. Check out the new teaser from the Los Angles all-sister group below.
Danielle's sexy snap and the announcement drew quick attention from fans on Twitter. "Damn, Danielle. Just.. damn," said a fan while another wrote, "Good god i love her."

Both 'Gasoline' and 'Man From The Magazine' appear on Haim's new album 'Women in Music Pt. III'. The LP arrived on June 26, 2020, as the band's third studio album and before its release, it was named one of the most anticipated albums of 2020 by several outlets, including Pitchfork and Vulture.
'Women in Music Pt. III' was met with worldwide acclaim from critics and a great reception from fans. At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 89, based on 23 reviews. The record was a New York Times Critic's Pick and was also featured on Pitchfork's Best New Music.
Last week, the sisters performed a reggae-tinged rendition of 'Gasoline' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' from the parking lot of the iconic Forum in Los Angeles.
Based on Danielle's top in the new announcement, it is likely that 'Man From The Magazine' is getting a music video. The song is an angry ballad about misogyny in the music industry. In the first verse, it chronicles a specific encounter between Este Haim and a sexist male journalist who asked her whether she "makes the same faces in bed" as she does on stage when playing bass.
"You expect me to deal with it. 'Til I'm perfectly numb. But you don't know how it feels. To be the c**t," Danielle vocalizes and later adds, "It’s a line that just came out of me," according to The Fader. "It’s speaking to my experience of being called a c**t to my face when sticking up for myself — now it’s almost become my mantra. If sticking up for myself and sticking up for my profession makes me a c**t, then I’ll be the c**t."
