Paramore “Hard Times”
Following a multi year hiatus that ultimately resulted in the departure of a founding member, American rock crossover band Paramore is back. Now led by Taylor York and Haley Williams, the new incarnation of the band features a change in sound and the return of original member Zac Farro, who originally left the band on bad terms in 2010.
The group’s new single “Hard Times”, written and sung by Haley Williams and Taylor York, is an 80s new wave inspired tune crafted in a style reminiscent of Duran Duran and Daft Punk, mashed with Paramore’s signature vibe. The incredibly catchy track was co-produced by York alongside Justin Meldal-Johnsen of Nine Inch Nails and M83 fame.
“Hard Times” is the lead track from Paramore’s After Laughter album, which drops on May 12 via Fueled by Ramen and Warner Music Group.
