‘Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris’ is from Williams’ debut solo album, ‘Petals For Armor’ released back in May. The official recording features backing vocals from Boygenius, the supergroup made up of Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker.
NME gave ‘Petals For Armor’ four stars upon its release, saying “after a turbulent decade with her acclaimed pop-punk band, [Williams] dissects grief, divorce and self-identity on her eclectic solo debut”.
Senate confirmation hearings for Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court vacancy, Amy Coney Barrett, are currently underway.
