HAIM are celebrating a decade of their debut album Days Are Gone this year, and as their next 10 years of music-making get started, it appears that a long-awaited link with the mysterious Jai Paul could be part of the days to come.

Today, the sister trio appeared on a new episode of Lauren Laverne's BBC Radio 6 Music show to chat about their anniversary milestone, their recent performance at All Points East, memories of seeing Prince live and much more.

The conversation wasn't pure nostalgia, however, as Laverne would come to ask the group about future plans: "Looking ahead, will there be a new album soon?"

The Haim sisters noted how they had "been working with some cool people" as of late, and referencing a play of the producer's "Jasmine" earlier in the broadcast, added, "We played Jai Paul earlier; we might've been in the studio with him"; "We may or may not have been in the studio with him"; "Cannot confirm or deny."

Pitchfork points out that this possible collaboration is a long time coming, with HAIM having previously shouted out the enigmatic Jai Paul in previous conversations with The Wall Street Journal and The Fader.

You can hear HAIM hint at new music with Jai Paul via BBC Radio 6, shortly after the 1:21 mark.

Jai Paul made his live debut at Coachella earlier this year, and also delivered the first-ever vinyl pressing of his 2013 album Leak 04-13 (Bait Ones), which memorably leaked online.

HAIM's anniversary reissue of Days Are Gone arrives September 29. The trio's most recent album is 2020's Women in Music Pt. III.
