In a newsletter sent out yesterday, Hayley Williams, who released her debut solo album ‘Petals For Armor’ in 2020 and her follow-up ‘Flowers For Vases / Descansos’ earlier this year, hinted at her band’s return. (Friday, November 26)
Who is Hayley Williams
Hayley Nichole Williams, born December 27, 1988, is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and entrepreneur best known as the main vocalist, primary songwriter, and keyboardist for the rock band Paramore.
Williams, who was born and reared in Mississippi, moved to Franklin, Tennessee when she was 13 years old, shortly after her parents separated in 2002. She co-founded Paramore with Josh Farro, Zac Farro, and Jeremy Davis in 2004. Hayley Williams, Zac Farro, and Taylor York are the current members of the band. All We Know Is Falling was released in 2005, Riot! in 2007, Brand New Eyes in 2009, Paramore in 2013, and After Laughter in 2017.
What Hayley Williams Said
“Before I go, I want to thank everyone for your incredible support over the last two years. I know we haven’t been able to get together properly to sing and vent and break a sweat… but I believe Petals and Descansos lived the lives they were meant to live. live. After all, Paramore can’t stay ‘on hiatus’ indefinitely, can it?” He penned.
Williams concluded the newsletter with: “I adore all of you. Will you be there next year?”
The last time Paramore released an album, ‘After Laughter,’ it was in 2017, and they supported it with a few live shows.
Williams also mentioned the support and contributions of Paramore’s bandmates to her solo work in her thoughtful letter.
“I wrote in the midst of it all. It’s enough to record two solo albums. The type of albums I vowed I’d never make. Because how could anyone, especially me, think for a second that my devotion to Paramore had waned? “He penned.
“The guys were by my side for the majority of the process. They encouraged me even if they didn’t work on the project with me. I even got to write with some friends outside of Paramore, but still very close to them, who taught me a lot and inspired me a lot. Petals would most likely not exist if it weren’t for Joey Howard, his bass, and a drum machine.”
Williams hinted in April that Paramore had begun work on their sixth album.
The singer shared a screenshot of a text message she exchanged with drummer Zac Farro. In it, the two discussed “paramore 6,” in which they apparently reflected on growing old with the number of albums they have amassed to date.
This comes after Williams stated in February that she has no plans to record another solo album and will instead concentrate on Paramore.
In other news, Williams announced earlier this year that she is discontinuing her use of social media in order to spend more time “looking up and out, rather than down.”
