Hayley talks The News

Paramore just released their second single off This is Why, the album which drops February 10th. The music video was directed by Mike Kluge and Matthew DeLisi. In a press release for the song Hayley Williams shared a couple of thoughts on the song, including the sound and the writing process.

“’The News’ is one of those songs that came together pretty quickly and felt exciting from the start,” Hayley Williams says. “It feels like a happy medium between classic Paramore angst and bringing in some influences we’ve always had but never exploited. Watching Zac track drums for this one was one of my favorite memories from the studio. Lyrically, it probably explains itself. The 24-hour news cycle is just impossible to comprehend. And I feel a pang of guilt when I unplug to protect my headspace. The common reaction, or non-reaction, seems to be dissociation. Not one of us is innocent of that and who could blame us?”
