LIMITED EDITION GREY 2LP VINYL GATEFOLD
Release Date: 8th May 2020
Paramore's frontwoman steps out on her own and away from the rock music she's synonymous for, instead she paces powerfully into pop music patterns. Petals For Armor puts Williams' incredible voice front-and-centre and off-sets it against experimental forms of synth-pop and art-pop for the perfect accompliment. Petal to the metal!

"“PETALS FOR ARMOR” is the debut solo album from GRAMMY® Award-winning artist Hayley Williams. The first single from the album, “Simmer”, marked Hayley Williams’ first new music release since Paramore’s chart-topping 2017 album, “AFTER LAUGHTER.” Long regarded as an exhilarating live act, Paramore has spent much of the past decade-plus on the road, including countless sold out world tours and show-stealing festival sets around the globe. “I’m so ready and so incredibly humbled to get to share this project,” says Williams. “Making it was a scary, empowering experience. Some of my proudest moments as a lyricist happened while writing ‘PETALS FOR ARMOR.’ And I was able to get my hands a little dirtier than usual when it came to instrumentation. I’m in a band with my favorite musicians so I never really feel the need to step into a role as a player when it comes to Paramore records. This project, however, benefited from a little bit of musical naïveté and rawness and so I experimented quite a bit more. I made this with some of the closest people to me. Their respective talents really shine bright throughout the record. I like to think we all make each other better and the result is something that sounds and FEELS exactly as I’d hoped it would. Now that it’s time to put it all out there, I can finally exhale. I’m excited to let people in to experience a different side of myself that I’ve only very recently become familiar with.”"
