We've already heard part one of Hayley Williams' new solo album "Petals For Armor," and the Paramore singer was scheduled to release part 2 this week! However, with the coronavirus pandemic, Williams decided to change her plans around. Instead she has decided to release the tracks one by one with today seeing the release of new song “Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris."
This song features backup vocals from Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus, and Phoebe Bridgers, also known as boygenius.
In the explanation for why she did it this way she took to social media with this message:
“I wanted to drop a line really quick to give an update about my upcoming album,PETALS FOR ARMOS, and what’s going on with my music in light of the effect of COVID-19. I had planned on dropping another EP’s worth of songs this week but after a couple of days of thinking about it, I just don’t feel comfortable going through with that plan anymore. My reason being that just like everyone else, I feel a lot of anxiety right now. My hope is that in doing this, there will be something new to look forward to as the strange days roll by. As always, I want people to be able to take time to get to know each song and I’m really hoping to find creative ways to introduce them to you over the weeks to come. Man, I also just really hope that stretching out this way keeps me creative and connected enough to stay positive and hopeful amidst uncertainties.”
