In the replies you can view the artwork for Paramore's upcoming single "Now." Some of you may say "why is this news?" but honestly we're just excited to hear this jam. It will hit our ears on January 22nd.
I was lucky enough to get to ask Hayley Williams some questions about Paramore's upcoming Self-Titled album which drops in a few months. We talked about the sound of the new album, the band's rocky past three years and more.
The producer of Paramore's new album talked a little about his process in a new interview, stating the band doesn't "need to be a pop-punk band anymore" and "All I’m really trying to say is that we’re not trying to deliberately lose their natural commerciality. I am here to articulate their vision for a step of growth. I’m not afraid to put a guitar through a modular synth, for instance. I want the album to sound very visceral and a little bit less locked down and computerized—more 1981 than 2012, with a nod to 2016. Humans playing textural sounds that can still be heavy and fast, but also shaded."
