Hayley Williams Hints At Paramore’s Return, ‘See You Sometime Next Year’
Paramore’s lead singer Hayley Williams recently sent a newsletter with which she shared some exciting news. Williams revealed that Paramore may return in 2022 after a five–year-break.
Some of you may wonder why Hayley announced it with a newsletter, as many musicians use social media nowadays. Hayley Williams had announced that she won’t be using social media because she prefers to be known for her music rather than her personal life. She wanted to regain her privacy as social media makes setting boundaries pretty tricky.
Just like many bands, Paramore also had ups and downs throughout their musical journey. Some of their founding members left the band, and they had several conflicts. They released their last album in 2017 and then took a step back from the music industry for a while. However, Hayley Williams didn’t stop producing new stuff, and she released her first solo album on May 8, 2020, followed by a second one in 2021.
Despite the success of her solo career, Williams always implied that she would prefer producing music with Paramore rather than going solo. It seems like her wish will come true in a short time. According to the newsletter she sent, Hayley Williams hinted at the band’s return sometime in 2022. It is without doubt that the Paramore fans will walk on air after hearing these promising words.
Here is how Hayley Williams gave the good news about Paramore:
“The guys were by my side nearly the entire process. If not actually working on the project with me then cheering me on. I even got to write with a few friends outside of – but very much connected to – Paramore, who taught me so much and gave me so much to be inspired by. ‘Petals’ would likely not even exist if not for Joey Howard, his bass guitar, and a drum machine!
Before I go, thank you all so much for the incredible support these last couple years. 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. See you sometime next year?”
In her letter, Williams also reflected on her bandmates’ support during her solo efforts. Paramore’s bassist Joey Howard played in many songs of her debut solo studio album, ‘Petals for Armor,’ and it shows that Paramore’s band members’ commitment to each other is still going on.
