It's no secret that Hayley Williams has been thinking rather a lot about the return of Paramore, revealing that she was "ready" for their next record back in February, and teasing that she was possibly writing new lyrics in August.

Now, in a newsletter sent out on November 26, the vocalist has suggested we could see the band – and maybe even hear the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2017's After Laughter – "sometime next year".

"Before I go, thank y’all so much for the incredible support these last couple years," Hayley wrote, referencing her two solo LPs: Petals For Armor and FLOWERS For VASES / descansos.

"I know we didn’t get to properly come together to sing and vent and sweat it all out… but I do think that Petals and descansos lived exactly the lives they were meant to. Besides, Paramore can’t be ‘on a break’ forever now can we?

"I love y’all," she concluded. "See you sometime next year?"
