Hayley Williams new song

Hayley Williams has dropped her new song ‘My Friend’

American singer/ songwriter, Hayley Williams, has delighted fans with the release of another brand new track from her upcoming solo album ‘Petals For Armor’, entitled ‘My Friend’.

The singer made the decision to release the album in stages with Part 1 consisting of five tracks ; ‘Simmer’, ‘Leave It Alone’. ‘Cinnamon’, ‘Creepin’ and ‘Sudden Desire’.

The artist then went on to release two separate singles; ‘Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris’ and ‘Over Yet’

Williams had previously expressed that she felt it was better to do things this way, due to the contrasting themes that she explores in the album’s lyrics.

She stated that:“There are a lot of themes covered on the album as a whole and I thought it was best to separate some of these themes so that there can be time for everyone to digest some of the songs before we move along to others.

“It’s a way to include people on the journey in the same way that I experienced it“.

Hayley Williams started out as the front- woman of American Pop- punk outfit, Paramore, who released their latest album ‘After Laughter’ in 2017. Due to an ongoing battle with mental health the singer has since temporarily left the band, with details of a return to the group not yet known.

‘Petals For Armor’ will be the singer’s first solo album and is set for release on May 8th.
