Hayley Williams was scheduled to release the second installment of her Petals for Armor album this week, but has delayed the release as the coronavirus continues to spread.

The songstress didn't leave her fans hanging, though. On Thursday (March 19), she dropped a new song called "Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris." The track features vocals from boygenius, made up of Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus, and Phoebe Bridgers.

The breezy tune is a stance on feminism that uses a garden as a metaphor for growth and self-discovery, a positive message during this trying time.

Williams' solo debut is now out May 8. Listen to "Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris" below.
