It is ALWAYS a good time for new music from Paramore. Hayley Williams says the band has been back in the studio as of recently, and that can truly only mean one thing. This news came in the form of a health update from Williams. Paramore was unfortunately forced to cancel shows due to Hayley Williams suffering from a lung infection. Luckily, she is feeling much better now and hinted at the band writing new tunes.
In February of this year, Paramore released their long-anticipated sixth studio album, This Is Why. It featured popular singles including the title track, “This Is Why“, “The News“, “C’est Come Ca“, and “Running Out Of Time“. They spent the last few months on the road supporting the album via a headline tour. Hayley Williams also featured on a vault track from Taylor Swift‘s Speak Now (Taylor’s Version). The band is certainly staying busy. With the news of new music in the future, we couldn’t be more excited.
Hayley Williams took to Discord to share an update with her fans, saying, “We’ve been off the road for a couple weeks now… mainly in LA. Thankfully got some down time but we put some work in too. It felt good to get back into a studio. More of that once we get home to Nashville. I can hardly believe I don’t cough all day and night anymore. My stomach is still fucked from 10 kinds of medication… I’m just happy to be resting more. When I was feeling my worst, I couldn’t do much but just sleep and lay around. I watched all of Yellowjackets, 3 or 4 music docs, They Cloned Tyrone, A Good Person (never cried so much or stared blankly across my living room for longer after a movie was over)… but mostly I just scrolled around on my phone… to a degree that has been, to put it nicely, DISGUSTING.”
She continues, “After successfully divorcing myself from social media for quite a long time – I have become, once again, chronically online. Anyone else know this pain? For me, it always starts out sweet. I love to see photos or random anecdotes from people who’ve come out to our shows… I love the stupid inside jokes and even the sticky parasocial connection. And when I am not para-lurking, I am watching dog videos or watching people I don’t know organize their shit. But I also see lots of news, especially from back home. It’s literally always sad or rage- inducing. Never positive. Depressing.”
