Since the release of their third album, ‘Brand New Eyes’ in 2009, we’ve been waiting and waiting, and then waiting some more for Paramore’s next musical venture, and for the return of positively carrot-topped Hayley Williams.
And that day is finally here! Well, the release date is, of their self-titled fourth album, and ready to hit our speakers on 9th April 2013.
Feeling too impatient to wait until April? Agreed. But, never fear, because our ears can be treated to some Paramore delights much earlier.
The release of ‘Now’, the first single to be taken from the new album, will be purchasable on 22nd January.
Speaking about the album’s title, ‘Paramore’, ginger than ginger Hayley said: “It has been self-titled through nearly the entire process. In fact, what usually takes us weeks on end to sum up and put a label on only took us a five-minute conversation this time around.
“The whole making of this album was a rediscovering of ourselves as a band and as friends. It was a process that allowed us the freedom to explore new territory artistically and to liberate ourselves as musicians, singers, as people!
“Sincerely, we feel that the best way to give it a name is just to call it what it is. This album is us.”
And here’s a teaser clip of the album. Enjoy!
