Hayley Williams teases new Paramore album and Earth Day merch collaboration
Earlier this year Hayley Williams stated that she was “ready for the next Paramore album” following her two excellent lockdown solo records: 2021’s FLOWERS for VASES / descansos, and last year’s Petals For Armor. And now it seems as though the follow-up to 2017’s After Laughter is truly on the way…
Overnight, Hayley shared a screengrab of a conversation with drummer Zac Farro referring to “paramore 6”, with the pair seemingly also reflecting on “getting oooooold” (six albums is a lot guys, but you’re really not old – don’t worry).
As well as that, the vocalist has announced an awesome Earth Day collaboration with fashion label Collina Strada, with new “RIOT!-esque” pieces benefitting closethewatergap.org.
“Paramore have collaborated with fashion label and social issues/awareness platform Collina Strada to create some exclusive pieces,” Hayley says. “They are very RIOT!-esque and both items will benefit orgs for Earth Day.
“Collina Strada partners with theor.org to source upcycled tees from Kantamanto Market in Ghana where unsold/donated clothing is causing an ecological disaster. This one’s hand-dyed and features a vintage Paramore design screenprinted on front.
“And the piece de resistance: the Collina Strada x Paramore circa 2007 reusable water bottle. Collina Strada made these bedazzled bitches famous a few seasons ago or more(?) and you see em all over fashion week. Can’t believe I own a Pmore themed one now.”
