Paramore Have Four Songs Written For New Record

8:18 AM Blogger Serabutan 2 Comments

Hayley Williams has revealed that Paramore has already penned four tracks for their next record. Williams spoke to Spanish website Rockzone and noted that the band’s most recent single “Monster” isn’t exactly an indication of where this album will go.

“We have written four new songs and they are quite diverse,” Williams said. “There are some heavier songs, but there’s also one that we plan to play live soon that is called ‘In The Morning Mess.’” She added, “I can’t really say that ‘Monster’ is an indication of what to expect on the next Paramore album. We, as a band, will always try to evolve and try new things. It will be different for sure, but it will still keep Paramore’s essence.”

As for whether you can expect new Paramore members any time soon? Not so much. After the departure of the Farro brothers last year, it looks like Paramore will remain a trio for the time being. ”We are not in the process of looking out for new members right now,” Williams said. “The band [is] Jeremy, Taylor and I. We don’t spend too much time thinking about how Paramore will be in the future. It’s hard when you go through a period of changing members so what we want to do right now is play great songs.”

Paramore released their latest single, “Monster,” early last month, and now the stand alone single, featured on the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack, will soon have a music video to accompany it.

On Friday, the band released a 19-second teaser for the video. The teaser features band members Hayley Williams, Jeremy Davis and Taylor York, wearing formal attire, floating unconscious in water while flashes of flowers and an empty hospital bed flashes on screen.

The song, which appears to demonstrate the strength the band members have after the departure of two of its members late last year, has images in the video that go with the song's lyrics.

Such lyrics are, “You were my conscience. So solid, now you’re like water. And we started drowning, not like we’d sink any further. But I let my heart go. It's somewhere down at the bottom. But I'll get a new one, and come back for the hope that you've stolen.”

The video premieres, starting at midnight, Monday, July 18 on On television, the video will air on MTV, MTV2, MTV Hits and mtvU starting at 6 a.m.

Watch the teaser below.



Paramore Lyrics - Ignorance

12:51 PM Blogger Serabutan 0 Comments

If I'm a bad person
You don't like me
Well I guess I'll make my own way
It's a circle
A mean cycle
I can't excite you anymore

Where's your gavel
Your jury
What's my offense this time
You're not a judge but if you're gonna judge me
Sentence me to another life

Don't wanna hear your sad songs
I don't wanna feel your pain
When you swear it's all my fault 'cause you know we're not the same
We're not the same
The friends who stuck together
We wrote our names in blood
But I guess you can't accept that the change is good
It's good

You treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

Ignorance is your new best friend

This is the best thing that could've happened
Any longer and I wouldn't have made it
It's not a war no it's not a rapture
I'm just a person but you can't take it
The same tricks that once fooled me they won't get you anywhere
I'm not the same kid from your memory
Now I can fend for myself

Don't wanna hear your sad songs
I don't wanna feel your pain
When you swear it's all my fault 'cause you know we're not the same
We're not the same
Yeah we used to stick together
We wrote our names in blood
But I guess you can't accept that the change is good
It's good

You treat me just like another stranger
Well it's nice to meet you sir I guess I'll go
I best be on my way out

Ignorance is your new best friend

Hayley Williams & Other Hip Musicians Will Rock 'Muppets' Soundtrack

8:54 AM Blogger Serabutan 2 Comments

Move over Disney soundtracks, the Muppets are taking over! The artists and songs for the upcoming Muppets movie (due out early next year) have been released and, I gotta say, they sort of make Coachella look like Bible Study. Who is covering the coveted "Rainbow Connection" you're wondering? Why, it's Paramore's Hayley Williams and Weezer. Hot dog!

Come on, who doesn't love the adorable flame-haired girl who possesses the freaky ability to force your body into movement when belting out "The Business of Misery"? She's perfect for the song, and with the help of Rivers Cuomo et al., it's sure to be a hit with the "over 6" set.

What other hipster artists are lending their musical talents to the "Green Album"? Walk with me ...

Here's the complete tracklisting:

OK Go -- "Muppet Show Theme"
Weezer and Hayley Williams -- "Rainbow Connection"
The Fray -- "Mahna Mahna"
Alkaline Trio -- "Moving Right Along"
My Morning Jacket -- "Our World"
Amy Lee -- "Halfway Down the Stairs"
Sondre Lerche -- "Mr Bassman"
The Airborne Toxic Event -- "Wishing Song"
Brandon Saller and Billy Martin -- "Night Life"
Andrew Bird -- "Bein' Green"
Matt Nathanson -- "Hope That Something Better Comes Along"
Rachael Yamagata -- "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday"

Pretty groovy, no? I mean, these are some seriously (read, tragically) hip bands lending their names to 120 minutes of talking puppets. I think that's cool, and so ... un-hip-band-like.

Let's take a band like Weezer, for example. Those dudes may make whimsical-sounding tunes about pork and beans, but they really take themselves seriously. Remember when Rivers went celibate? And how about Ok Go? They're not the most mainstream of bands, but most of their videos have blown up the Internet with their artsy appeal.

And I have to say, I'm glad this soundtrack is kind of indie. Not just because it's the kind of music I prefer, but because it seems like it's all pop, all the time now. Every week on Glee, it's Britney Spears or Lady Gaga. And everybody knows what all those Disney soundtracks sound like -- a whole lot of synthesizers and autotune. The Muppets bands are the cool kids, the misunderstood ones, the broodingly sexy ones. And they made the one kids' soundtrack that I actually might be able to listen to.

What do you think of the bands lending their talents to the Muppets soundtrack?
