“We wrote and followed something that we loved and it really surprised us,” Williams told the magazine. “We kept joking around, everything was downhill from that point on, but thank God we were surprised a lot throughout this case. I’m still waiting for the moment to let it be known that we’re onto something new and we’re not just rehashing the same thing [things].”
Paramore formed in 2004 and they are known for their pop punk sound which shines in songs such as ‘Misery Business’, ‘Still Into You’ and ‘Ignorance’. Their track “Ain’t It Fun” won the Grammy for Best Rock Song in 2015.
So far, they have released five studio albums, the latest being 2017’s “After Laughter”.
For their upcoming work, which does not yet have a release date, Williams said she tried to involve Grammy-nominated singer SZA.
“We started recording only a few months ago. We go into the studio around 10 a.m. and leave around 7 or 8 p.m. like a bunch of dads,” she said. “I tried to convince SZA to come hang out with us because I want to be friends in real life, but we leave the studio to eat and sleep and she’s still laughing at us.”
Despite the long gap between outings, Williams did not rest on her laurels. She released two solo albums amid the pandemic – 2020’s ‘Petals for Armor’ and 2021’s ‘Flowers for Vases/Descansos’.
Speaking about the process of creating their sixth album, Williams said, “Our production has always been all over the place and with this project it’s not that different. We are still in the thick of it but some things have remained constant since the beginning. 1) More guitar emphasis, and 2) Zac should be as animal as he wants with drum takes.
