Hayley Williams Announces Paramore Is Writing a New Album
Last year, Paramore wrapped promotion of its most recent album (2013’s hit-filled self-titled effort), leaving fans to hope new music was on the way.
Well, there is. Today (Jan. 20), frontwoman Hayley Williams announced the band was writing its new album, after a fan dropped the big question.
@yelyahwilliams I think u should say something about a new album, don't you?!— Léo (@leonardowolfff) January 20, 2016
haha, i suppose. we are writing it. https://t.co/Y82WXKYITz— hayley from Paramore (@yelyahwilliams) January 20, 2016
The conversation started with Williams tweeting her gratitude for several “humbling/motivating” articles about Paramore in recent weeks. It’s been a trying time for the rock band, which split amicably with bassist Jeremy Davis in Dec. 2015, leaving it with just two full-time members. But Williams and guitarist Taylor York are looking to the future, as this tweet confirms.
Next up, Paramore is set to headline the second Parahoy! cruise on March 5-9. Will they have any more big announcements to make in the meantime? Stay tuned.
