Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams dropped off her debut solo album, Petals for Armor. Clocking in at under one hour, the three-side, 15-track project sees contributions from bandmates Taylor York and Zac Farro, with York producing the album and Farro directing the music video for “Dead Horse.”

Written during a Paramore hiatus in 2019 after touring for After Laughter, Williams dives head first into topics of vulnerability and openness. Petals for Armor acts as her creative restart as she expels over a decade’s worth of pent up energy from working with a previously unstable band to her childhood trauma and divorce. ”I kept feeling like the way for me to protect myself best is to be vulnerable and be kay with having a lot of pain at certain times and also feeling a lot of joy at certain times,” she said to BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac.

Stream Hayley Williams’ Petals for Armor on Spotify and Apple Music.

In other new music releases, BROCKHAMPTON shared two new singles “N.S.T.” and “things can’t stay the same.”
