HAIM released their full length debut, Days Are Gone, earlier this week and already they’re premiering a brand new track, “Edge.”

The B-side was co-written by George Lewis, Jr., better known as synth pop artist Twin Shadow, and sticks to the same smooth ’80s pop style that fills the band’s–made up of sisters Este, Danielle and Alana–debut.

The track bides from Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes,” with the sisters Haim manning the drums and harmonizing sweetly about the one who got away. (Listen below.)

Though Twin Shadow didn’t make it on their debut, they did get a little help from Jessie Ware who co-wrote the title track with them.

In an interview with Radio.com, the sisters revealed that after a five-hour lunch, where they talked about everything from rollerblading to finding a place in L.A. where they could all live together, the song came together. HAIM hadn’t intended to write a song with the British soulstress. “It was mostly like, ‘Let’s write a song so you don’t get in trouble,'” Alana explained. But they soon realized it was too good to pass up and was too good not to name their album after.
