Paramore Unveils New Track, 'Told You So'

Hey, have you heard Paramore are back? The pop-punk faves debuted a second new song, “Told You So,” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show today. “Told You So” follows ultra-catchy first single “Hard Times,” which found the band embracing a playful, ’80s-influenced sound.

Here’s how Hayley Williams described the song in an interview with Lowe: “Had we not been through everything we’ve been through until this point, we wouldn’t be sitting here and we wouldn’t be enjoying it the way that we do and we wouldn’t have the deep kind of very honest friendships that we do now that feel life-giving. So that’s kinda where the song started, and then it did become about this looking at my life.”

Paramore’s new album After Laughter is out next Friday, May 12. Hear “Told You So” via Apple Music and watch the video below.
