Women in Music Pt. III is the third studio album by American band Haim. It was released through Columbia Records on June 26, 2020. The album was originally set for release on April 24, 2020, but was delayed due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and "the changing nature of travel policies and quarantines across the world." The album's release was later moved to June 26. It was produced by Danielle Haim, Rostam Batmanglij, and Ariel Rechtshaid, and was preceded by the singles "Summer Girl", "Now I'm in It" and "Hallelujah" The song "The Steps" was released alongside the album pre-order.
Before being officially announced, it was named one of the most anticipated albums of 2020 by several outlets, including Pitchfork and Vulture.
The trio initially teased the album with the abbreviation WIMPIII on their social media, jokingly offering a "free T-shirt" to anybody who could guess what it stood for or who had an answer that made them laugh.
The album cover was shot at Canter's Deli in Los Angeles by Paul Thomas Anderson, who also directed the music videos for all three singles, "The Steps" and "Man From The Magazine".
Women in Music Pt. III was nominated for 2 Grammy awards, including the coveted category of Album of the Year.
In February 19, 2021, Haim released the expanded edition of the album with new versions of "Gasoline" (featuring singer-songwriter Taylor Swift) and "3 AM" (with the multi-instrumentalist musician Thundercat).
