Yo, Paramore fans! Good news! Front-dudette Hayley Williams has just served up a juicy little update on that new album we’ve all been waiting for.
ICYMI: the band recently reunited (sort-of) with their OG drummer Zac Farro and have been hard at work recording album number 5, the follow-up to their mega 2013 self-titled LP Paramore.
And it sounds — from the past tencey-ness of the pop punk kween’s new Insty post — a helluva lot like the disc is in the can.
“About a year ago, we began writing & demoing songs for #5,” Williams writes. “Following up our self-titled album didn’t seem like it was going to be an easy task and, unsurprisingly, it was not.”
“The problem about comparing yourself to… yourself… is that even though it’s better than looking elsewhere, you’re still looking in the wrong direction. for me, it wasn’t until i trusted that the past is finished with me that i could go looking for what’s next. our pasts can be a great comforter, or a horror movie; a noose, or a shield… but it is ‘past’ for a reason. after a rest, we have to go looking for what’s supposed to come after that. – h”
So there you go. ~Decode~ that y’all. Could she possibly be hinting at a new musical direction?
Either way, seems like LP #5 will be out this year for sure.
