Fresh from their triumphant 6 Music Festival appearance, Haim curate Now Playing’s first ever all-female playlist via Twitter to mark International Women’s Day.

The Los Angeles girl trio will be live tweeting throughout Sunday’s show between 6-8pm. They’ll be selecting and directly commenting on tracks suggested by YOU using the hashtag #Haim6Music, as well as those sent in via Facebook and other platforms (see the bottom of page for the different ways to get your suggestions into the show).

And who better to host this special tweet in, than a group who have been specifically recognised for their Twitter skills. At last month’s NME Awards not only were the trio awarded Best International Band, but guitarist and singer Alana Haim scooped the Best Blog or Twitter Award for her @babyhaim feed… for the second year running.

Meanwhile, as well as curating Now Playing’s first ever all-female playlist, Haim host our inaugural ‘relay tweet in’. From 6.30pm each band member will take it in turns to curate 30 minutes of the music - all inspired by the YOUR suggestions. The first 30 minutes of the show will be a mix of the trio’s own personal favourite tracks by fellow female musicians.

Since topping the BBC’s Sound of 2013 poll, sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim have become one of the hottest new music acts, performing at Glastonbury and signing to Jay Z’s Roc Nation label, as well as picking up a clutch of awards along the way.

The group’s special tweet in is ahead of the release of their latest single ‘If I Could Change Your Mind’, from their debut album ‘Days Are Gone’.

So what tracks do you reckon Haim should pick for our inaugural all-female playlist as we extend Saturday’s International Women’s Day celebrations?

Get your song suggestions – including the reasons WHY - into us by tweeting #Haim6Music, comment on the Now Playing Facebook page, here on the blog, email nowplaying@6music.co.uk or drag tracks onto our Spotify and rdio playlists.

    HELLO HAIM these are my suggestions-> Say you'll be there by the Spice Girls, because they're the spice girls and that's the only reason you need. Also consider My love don't cost a thing by J-Lo, Our Song by Taylor Swift, plus some Destiny's Child and some Iggy Azaleia. LOVE YOUU

    I would love Suzi Quatro to be featured. To me, she was an iconic performer during the glam 70s. Her image (the leather catsuit, stomping boots and feather-cut) was uncompromising and different to any other female performer in the mainstream at that time. The music was thrilling too, and underpinned by a distinctly un-girly air of menace. Can The Can or Devil Gate Drive would be obvious tracks to choose. Her career has enjoyed deserved longevity - including a diversion into acting when she played Leather Tuscadero in The Fonz! - and she's still out there, in the leather, showing Joan Jett how it should be done...

    I would like a Lucy Ward song on the all-female playlist. She was a runner up in the BBC R2 folk awards. Preferably her song Shellback, but all the tracks off her latest album Single Flame are great to be honest.
