Paramore announced last week that they will be releasing a new album, This Is Why, on February 10 via Atlantic.
The band also released the title track, “This Is Why,” and an accompanying video directed by Turnstile‘s Brendan Yates. The visual was shot in Malibu, California.
“‘This Is Why’ was the very last song we wrote for the album. To be honest, I was so tired of writing lyrics but [guitarist] Taylor [York] convinced [drummer] Zac [Farro] and I both that we should work on this last idea. What came out of it was the title track for the whole album,” Paramore’s Hayley Williams said in a statement.
“It summarizes the plethora of ridiculous emotions, the rollercoaster of being alive in 2022, having survived even just the last three or four years,” she added. “You’d think after a global pandemic of f—ing 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.”
“This Is Why” is Paramore’s first new music since their 2017 album, After Laughter.
