It’s been a big week for the three sisters of Haim, with their long-anticipated new album Days Are Gone debuting to critical raves and impressive sales figures—even battling Justin Timberlake’s latest for No. 1 in the U.K. (Elsewhere in Slate, check out Carl Wilson’s full review.)

To cap off the week, Twin Shadow have shared new Haim track “Edge,” which they co-wrote with Haim and which is featured on the album’s deluxe edition across the pond.

A slow-builder, “Edge” is another fine example of the kind of R&B-injected rock the band does so well. Beginning with a breathy vocal, Danielle Haim sings about fighting off the weight of her heart as she’s steadily buried under a swelling tide of arpeggios, synths, background vocals, and electronic percussion.
