Rock band Paramore is officially back with a new single. “This is Why” arrives as their first taste of new music in five years, since the release of their 2017 album After Laughter.
“This Is Why” Explores New Sounds
Gather up, rockers! Your favorite alternative-rock band from the 2000s is back. After much anticipation from fans – and the entire world, to be honest – Paramore finally released a new song. Let me tell you, its sound is quite different from their last album from 2017. They are exploring new horizons, just like they are known to do.
“This Is Why” offers a little bit of alternative rock, soul, dance, and funk all at once. How on earth is this possible, you might ask? Well, that’s an answer that honestly only Paramore can give you. When the music starts, we can certainly hear a more alternative sound. As the song progresses, it becomes hard rock. In between, are all the above-mentioned music styles.
Paramore Has a New Album Coming Next Year!
And “This Is Why” is not only the title of Paramore’s new single. With its release, they announced that they have a new album coming in February 2023, which is titled – you guessed it! – This Is Why. We’ll have to wait and see if the band shares any other singles prior to the album release!
“‘This Is Why’ was the very last song we wrote for the album,” Paramore’s Hayley Williams says. “To be honest, I was so tired of writing lyrics but Taylor convinced Zac and I both that we should work on this last idea. What came out of it was the title track for the whole album. It summarizes the plethora of ridiculous emotions, the rollercoaster of being alive in 2022, having survived even just the last three or four years. You’d think after a global pandemic of fucking biblical proportions and the impending doom of a dying planet, that humans would have found it deep within themselves to be kinder or more empathetic or something.”
Paramore just kicked off their tour on September 29th, so make sure to see them live to hear the new song! For all dates and all information, click here.
