“See You Sometime Next Year”: Hayley Williams Hints at Possible Paramore Comeback
If you’re a millennial then chances are you were rocking out in your bedroom to Paramore at some point in your teenage life. The band is responsible for some of the biggest hits in the 2000s, and now, frontwoman Hayley Williams has hinted at a comeback.
Sharing a heartfelt message in her newsletter on Sunday, November 28, Hayley thanked her bandmates for their support with her two solo albums, Petals for Armor and Flowers For Vases/Descansos. But alongside acknowledging their loyalty, she also teased at a possible return next year.
“In the thick of it all, I wrote. Enough to make up 2 solo albums. The kind I never swore I’d make! Because how dare anyone, most of all me, think for a second that my loyalty to Paramore has dwindled,” Williams wrote. “The guys were by my side nearly the entire process. If not actually working on the project with me then cheering me on. I even got to write with a few friends outside of – but very much connected to – Paramore, who taught me so much and gave me so much to be inspired by. Petals would likely not even exist if not for Joey Howard, his bass guitar, and a drum machine!!”
Before concluding her post, the 32-year-old thanked her fans for remaining by her side over the years and then teased a new album from Paramore. The band’s last release was in 2017, titled After Laughter.
“Before I go, thank y’all so much for the incredible support these last couple years. I know we didn’t get to properly come together to sing and vent and sweat it all out…but I do think that Petals and descansos lived exactly the lives they were meant to. Besides, Paramore can’t be ‘on a break’ forever now can we? I love y’all. See you sometime next year?” the singer said.
Back in February while answering fan questions, Hayley revealed that she’s ready to get back into the studio with her fellow bandmates on Twitter.
“Did you write more songs for FFV that weren’t eventually included in the tracklist and if so are you gonna use them either for a future solo project or for a Paramore album? #flowersforvases,” the fan asked. “There are more songs, yeah,” the singer replied. “But I’m not planning on another solo album. And I’m not sure if they’d be great for Paramore. I’m ready for the next Paramore album. Let’s go.”
