Paramore are teasing their next single, The News, which will be released next Friday.

Sharing a clip on the band's TikTok account, the track sounds groovy, and we're all about it. 

In September, Paramore released their first song since 2017, This Is Why, the title track from their upcoming sixth album.

Entering back into a world - and cultural landscape - very different from the one they last participated in, the band returned with a song about exactly that.

This Is Why is a deliciously infectious Paramore ear-worm for the post-truth world. 

Of the song, Williams says, “This Is Why was the very last song we wrote for the album. To be honest, I was so tired of writing lyrics but Taylor convinced Zac and I both that we should work on this last idea. What came out of it was the title track for the whole album. It summarizes the plethora of ridiculous emotions, the rollercoaster of being alive in 2022, having survived even just the last 3 or 4 years. You’d think after a global pandemic of fucking biblical proportions and the impending doom of a dying planet, that humans would have found it deep within themselves to be kinder or more empathetic or something.”

In what's widely recognised as one of the most exciting musical returns of the year, the band have also announced the release of their long-awaited follow-up to their 2017 album, After Laughter, with This is Why on 10 February 2023 on Atlantic Records.

Recorded in Los Angeles, California, with long-time collaborator Carlos de la Garza, the album features ten new Paramore songs with cover art shot by Zachary Gray.

The News matches the tracklist printed in light on new Paramore merchandise.
