Paramore's Hayley Williams has said the band's new album is like "an answered prayer".

The singer was tweeting from inside the recording studio as the band lay down tracks for their currently untitled fourth album. Excitedly, she wrote:



The band, fronted by Hayley Williams, are currently working on their follow-up to 2009's 'Brand New Eyes' in LA with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen. Meldal-Johnsen is best known for his 10-year stint as Beck's bassist and recently co-produced M83's 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming' album.

The band have had tumultuous few years after two founding members, guitarist Josh Farro and his drummer brother Zach, departed from the group at the end of 2010.

Last month, the former Paramore sticksman opened up to NME about his reasons for leaving the band and strongly denied that he departed just because his brother Josh decided to go.

Asked about his departure, he said: "About a year before I quit, I was feeling like I should quit and I sought advice from lots of people about it. After talking to lots of people, they all pretty much said to me 'Stick it out for one year and then tell me how you feel'. I really tried to give it 100% in that year.

"I don't like the idea that I did things just because my brother did them. I made sure the band knew when I left that I'd made my own mind up, I sat them down separately and made sure they knew it had nothing to do with him, I really had my own reasons for deciding to leave. I didn't need Josh's approval for what I decided."
