Paramore Premieres New Song “The News” on BBC Radio 1
American rock band Paramore, consisting of Hayley Williams (vocals), Taylor York (guitar) and Zac Farro (drums), premiered a new song “The News” along with a music video onBBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is the second single off of their upcoming sixth studio album “This Is Why”.
The track was written by Hayley Williams, Taylor York and Zac Farro. produced by Carlos de la Garza.
The accompanying music video was co-directed by Mike Kluge and Matthew DeLisi.
“'The News' is one of those songs that came together pretty quickly and felt exciting from the start,” the band frontwoman Hayley Williams said of the song in the a press release. “It feels like a happy medium between classic Paramore angst and bringing in some influences we've always had but never exploited. Watching Zac track drums for this one was one of my favorite memories from the studio. Lyrically, it probably explains itself. The 24-hr news cycle is just impossible to comprehend. And I feel a pang of guilt when I unplug to protect my headspace. The common reaction, or non-reaction, seems to be dissociation. Not one of us is innocent of that and who could blame us?”
The new album comprises 10-track and is set to be released on February 10, 2022 via tlantic Records.
It is their first album in six years since the 2017 album “After Laughter”.
Hayley Williams said of the album, “We've found ourselves listening to a lot of older music that we grew up being inspired by. From day one, Bloc Party (British rock band) was the number one reference because there was such an urgency to their sound that was different to the fast punk or the pop punk or the like, loud wall of sound emo bands that were happening in the early 2000s.”
