Hayley Williams announces ‘Simmer’, the first track from her Petals For Armor project

Coming on January 22

Hayley Williams has confirmed the title of the first release from her new Petals For Armor solo project, with ‘Simmer’ set to be its first single.

The Paramore musician announced late last month that she’d be releasing solo music in 2020, saying that “with the help of some of my closest friends, I made something I’m going to call my own.”

“It’s a really special project and you’ll get a taste of it in January,” Williams added.


A new website for the project, which appears to be titled Petals For Armor, has since gone live, with a chilly, three-second teaser the first piece of media that was available to view. You can see the mysterious clip on the official Petals For Armor Instagram account below.

The clip finishes with the date 1.22.2020, suggesting that Williams’ first solo material under Petals For Armor will be released on January 22.

Williams confirmed last night (January 20) that ‘Simmer’ will be her “first offering” from Petals For Armor, and it is still scheduled to drop on January 22.

The above post also contains brief footage from what is likely to be the official music video for ‘Simmer’.


Petals For Armor posters have also been spotted in various cities in the US, such as in New York City, recently.

A series of teasers have also been uploaded to both Williams’ personal Instagram account and a separate Petals For Armor page over the past two weeks.
