Despite being released without a prior announcement, Williams’ album received positive reviews both from music critics and her fans. All 14 songs were written by Hayley Williams herself and stood out as a folk album rather than an art-pop sound like her previous recordings.

Recently, a fan shared a post on Twitter asking Hayley Williams her inspiration for her new album, ‘Flowers for Vases / Descansos’ besides having music as an only inspiration. Hayley Williams shared a post on her official Twitter page revealing that therapy and medication helped her through creating her album.

In addition to those things, Hayley Williams also took inspiration from her all-time favorite book, ‘Women Who Run With The Wolves’ by Clarissa Pinkola Estes along with having too much free time due to the lockdowns.

Here is what the fan said:

“Hayler Williams, besides music, there was any other kind of inspiration for #flowersforvases?”
Here is what Williams said:
“yes: therapy, having to go up on my meds when I was just sad and felt hopeless…, being alone and not being able to go do ‘my job;’ too much time on my hands, Women Who Run With The Wolves (it’s still my fav book all these years later)”
