Paramore have already teased the release of a new song yesterday, but no one expected that it would come with a video! The band premiered the track “Told You So” on Zane Low’s Beat1Radio Show. “Told You So” is from Paramore’s upcoming album “After Laughter” which comes out May 12th. The song is a bit more “trippy”, almost psychedelic, than their lead single “Hard Times” but similarly rhythmic. In an interview with Lowe, Hayley Williams talked about her struggles to write the lyrics:
That was one of the first pieces of music that Taylor sent me. I had a little thumb-drive, and I would just drive around listening to it, and especially back and forth from Taylor’s house. And I would sing little rhythmic sings to myself – they didn’t make sense. There were no words. But this is another one that really intimidated me because I was like, ‘I have all these melody ideas because there’s no so much melody going on and so much rhythm going on. It’s so inspiring. But how am I going to fit what I feel into that?’ It took a minute.”
The video was directed by Paramore’s drummer Zac Farro and Aaron Joseph. Watch it below! It shows Paramore driving around while wearing super fierce red outfits and black rimmed glasses. The “After Laughter” era seems to be all about the visuals. We really love the cutting edge style! And here we thought Paramore can’t get more stylish.
