Ban also reveal artwork for new single 'Now'
Paramore have revealed further details of their new material, including an album trailer and the artwork to new single ‘Now’.
The band, who recently announced their plan to release a new, self-titled album later this year, shared the video which shows the group writing and recording together with audio clips of new material. The ‘Now’ artwork, meanwhile, can be seen by scrolling to the bottom of the page.
When asked about what influenced their writing and recording, Williams recently revealed an unlikely set of influences, including Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J : “Taylor [York, guitarist] was listening to Alt-J a lot, I was listening to that Sirius XM channel called 1st Wave every day just getting my gothy vibes on in the car, and Jeremy (Davis, bassist) keeps us well versed in new hip-hop.”
She continued: “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. 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.”
However, Williams was quick to play down any fears, adding: “No dubstep was jammed in the making of this album.”
‘Now’ will be released in the UK on February 24 with the new album ‘Paramore’ following on April 8.
