After a whirlwind international tour and a new album cycle, Paramore is back with a new remix album of sorts, Re: This Is Why, and they announced each artist taking part in the release. The LP is set to arrive on October 6. 

According to a social media post, the band says, “We’ve long wanted to recognize the connection we have with some of the artists who’ve influenced us as a band and/or who have cited our band as an influence. Re: This Is Why is almost a remix album. Some of the songs have been remixed sort of classically, while others were reworked or rewritten. It’s incredible to hear all our worlds colliding. Out 10/6.”

The official news comes following cryptic notes app teasers from the band, alongside the celebration of one year of “This Is Why.”

For all of the sad girlies and guys out there, you’ll definitely be pleased to know that boygeniusJulien Baker is reimagining “Thick Skull,” Foals is also treating listeners to a “This Is Why” remix, while The Linda Lindas are bringing their own spin to “Running Out Of Time.” Plus, other artists appearing on the remix album include Wet Leg, Remi Wolf, Bartees Strange, and Claud. As if it couldn’t get more exciting, Paramore is releasing a new demo, “Sanity.” Check out the full tracklist as well as every featured artist below.
