This week Haerts (the duo featuring romantic partners Nini Fabi and Benny Gebert) shared a new song,“For the Sky,” via a video for it. The song features guest vocals from Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste. Julian Klincewicz directed the video, which was filmed while Fabi was pregnant.  Fabi had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘For the Sky’ came from a dream I had when I first found out that I was pregnant, which was the catalyst and beginning of writing the new music. When we finished the demo for the song I kept hearing Ed’s voice and just thought he would sound amazing on it.

We didn’t know him at the time, but were such fans. When we reached out we honestly thought we’d never hear from him. But we did and we went into the studio in LA, and ended up recording it just singing together in a room. Now that feels like such a nostalgic notion. But even then it was special. It was that feeling you get when you sing with somebody and something just clicks. And it’s especially crazy when you sing with a vocal force as Ed. I wish everybody could sing together more and feel that. “A few months later, we decided that we wanted to do a music video a week before I ended up giving birth. So it all came full circle when Julian came to NY and filmed me dancing at 9 months pregnant.”

Haerts’ last album, sophomore effort, came out in 2018 via Arts & Crafts. Haerts turned heads in 2012 with their fantastic debut single, Its documentary style video has over 1.8 million views on YouTube. That was followed by their 2013 Hemiplegia EP and their 2014-released self-titled debut album.
