Hayley Williams Announces Debut Album “Petals For Armor”, Premieres New Song “Simmer”
- American rock band Paramore singer Hayley Williams announced her debut solo album “Petals for Armor” will be released on May 8th.
On January 22nd, she premiered a new song “Simmer” from the album. The song is accompanied by the music video directed by Lindsey Byrnes.
It was written by Joe Howard, Taylor York and Hayley Williams.
“I’m so ready and so incredibly humbled to get to share this project,” Hayley Williams said in a statement. “Making it was a scary, empowering experience. Some of my proudest moments as a lyricist happened while writing Petals for Armor. And I was able to get my hands a little dirtier than usual when it came to instrumentation.”
She continued, “I’m in a band with my favorite musicians, so I never really feel the need to step into a role as a player when it comes to Paramore records. This project, however, benefited from a little bit of musical naïveté and rawness and so I experimented quite a bit more. I made this with some of the closest people to me. Their respective talents really shine bright throughout the record. I like to think we all make each other better and the result is something that sounds and feels exactly as I’d hoped it would. Now that it’s time to put it all out there, I can finally exhale. I’m excited to let people in to experience a different side of myself that I’ve only very recently become familiar with.”
