After a four-year break from recording, Paramore are back with a brand new song, video and album, After Laughter.
“Hard Times” is the first single off the upcoming LP and the new sound indicates the band may be taking off in a fresh direction.
While Hayley Williams’ powerful vocals still shine through, the summery single takes on a more pop-tinged ’80s sound than we’re used to from the band. The accompanying video, popping with vibrant colors, also adds to the new vibe.
After Laughter will be released on May 12.
