Paramore Grows Up On New, Self-Titled LP
January 9, 2013

Yesterday, Paramore gave fans a teaser clip of new music from the their forthcoming, self-titled album, which will be in stores on April 9. The band's single, "Now," will be released on January 22, and frontwoman Hayley Williams says that track is "quite heavy compared to some of the other songs" on the LP. In a new interview with AbsolutePunk.net, Williams also spoke about her skills as a lyricist this time around, since it has been almost four years since the band's last album.

"For the last two years, I have finally gotten the time and the space I needed to grow up and become a woman. So, I'd say that my lyrics have an inherently different feel. Hopefully, they grew up with me," Williams explained. "As far as love goes, I'm deeper in it than ever. Seeing one of my best friends so happily married does inspires me in a great way to keep believing in love. It's hard, man! I really have to fight the realist in me at times. Nonetheless, there are a couple of really fun love songs on this album. I'm sure there'll always be that pissed off, teenage angst inside me as long as I'm living in this crazy world. But geez, it felt extremely liberating to just feel everything for once."

As for the overall sound of the self-titled effort, Williams admitted that the band has been listening to a lot of electronic music. However, she says that did not necessarily influence their songwriting, and she quipped that "no dubstep was jammed in the making of this album."

"I'd be lying if I said we didn't collectively listen to more electronic music during this process than ever before. I think it's just because that genre is super hot right now," the singer explained. "Even so, I wouldn't say we sound like any of those bands. It sounds more like someone let us loose in a blow up castle full of instruments and we just bounced around it in for a few days with... purpose?"

Paramore already has some international tour dates announced in February, and then a few festival performances are set after that. The band plans to do plenty more touring in 2013.

"We want to be everywhere as much as we can," Williams said. As for bands she would potentially tour with, the singer added, "We had the band Kitten open our show in Pomona, CA last year, and we'd like to play with them more. I love Candy Hearts so much and think our fans would love them live. Also, if we could play some shows with Shiny Toy Guns then my friend Carah and I could shred a few stages together. She is the best. Basically, there are a lot of incredible ladies in music who I am so excited about and 2013 is going to be a big year for all of them, with or without a Paramore tour."
