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.

 

 

 

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.
