Hayley Williams: “I’m ready for the next Paramore album. Let’s go”
Following the release of surprise album FLOWERS for VASES / descansos earlier this month, Hayley Williams has been answering fans’ questions about the record in a Twitter Q&A and revealed that this is it for now on the solo chapter – and her focus is going to move onto Paramore next.
When asked if Hayley has more material following FLOWERS for VASES and last year’s debut Petals For Armor, the musician reveals that she does have more songs – but she doesn’t know how they’d be used in a solo capacity, or if they’d be right for her day job either.
“There are more songs, yeah,” Hayley writes. “But I’m not planning on another solo album. And I’m not sure if they’d be great for Paramore. I’m ready for the next Paramore album. Let’s go.”
Having written and recorded the entirety of FLOWERS for VASES / descansos in a career first during lockdown, one fan quizzes Hayley on if she will be “more involved with the instrumental writing process in Paramore albums now”, to which she responds: “I wouldn’t say I’ve been un-involved up till now but the thing is we grew up playing together and learning (and the re-learning) how to write together. They are my favorite musicians in the world. I’m excited to see how our writing together grows for this next project.”
Hayley also adds in another answer that, “I’m most looking forward to hearing whatever the next Paramore songs will sound like.”
Basically, then, it sounds like it’s all systems go for Paramore right now…
