Get your headphones ready, Paramore fans! Our favorite trio is back with their remix album, Re: This Is Why. Putting a fresh spin on each song from their latest studio record, This Is Why, the world-dominating band invited some of their favorite artists and collaborators to participate in the release. From the opening acts of their headlining tour (The Linda Lindas, Foals, and Remi Wolf) to long-term friends in the industry (Zane Lowe, Panda Bear, Romy), each remix shows a different side of Paramore and their musical versatility.  

Powerhouse frontwoman Hayley Williams shares the inspiration behind the reimagined record. “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,” she says. “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.”

Last night, Miss Williams sat down with Jimmy Fallon to promote the record and share the story behind a piece of popular Paramore merch. The black T-shirt shows off an X-ray of the singer’s neck and spine, injured following Williams’ intense headbanging during performances. As a result, she lost the natural curvature of her neck.

“For the first ten years of our career, we were always the youngest band out, and the older dudes were always like, ‘Oh, you’re going to regret headbanging like that.’ And we were like, ‘Nah, you’re just really old,’” she laughs. “I know a lot about neck bones at this point. My cervical vertebrae, C5 and 6, were eroding, and I had what’s called military neck. I had headbanged the curvature out of my neck. So it just became a huge part of my life.”

Hayley Williams isn’t going to let a little neck pain stop her from rocking on the road. Paramore is gearing up for some extraordinary international tour dates. In November, they are bringing their This Is Why Tour to fans in New Zealand and Australia. Then, in 2024, they are joining Taylor Swift on her upcoming leg of The Eras Tour.
