1. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Guys. Are you sitting down? You should sit down, and turn your speakers up, because Paramore just dropped their first new single in like four years.
“Hard Times” is the first single from the band’s upcoming album After Laughter (their first since 2013!) which comes out May 12.
2. It begins with Hayley emerging from a crashed car.
Step up in this bitch like!
3. And from the opening riff it’s clear this song is on some definite ’80s vibes.
7. And, yeah, the sound may be a little different than you expected from Paramore.
But that throaty Hayley Williams falsetto is still the same, and honestly, don’t you want your favorite bands to evolve?
