It’s been nearly four years since HAIM released new music, but the wait is finally over.

The sister-rockers dropped a new video for their single, “Right Now” on Thursday, and as an added bonus, it’s directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood, Boogie Nights). The super-simple clip follows the band performing together, and it’s all done in one shot.

“This is where we start, live in the studio,” they said in a Facebook post Thursday. “One take, live, at Valentine Studios during the recording of our second album.”

The group told Apple Music Thursday that Anderson shot the video in one day “before he was going to work.” Very casual.

“You can really hear the room mics are really loud and us stomping around,” Danielle Haim said. “Paul was adamant about wanting to hear Alana click on her pedal. You can hear that click when she does it and you can hear our heels and we were like, ‘Wow, this Is crazy I can’t believe we pulled this off in a day.'”

Their new album, Something to Tell You, will be released July 7.
