Paramore's Hayley Williams Is Releasing Some New Material Next Year
Williams revealed the news on social media, sharing a screenshot of a message written via the Notes app - also revealing she needed to charge her phone, I might add.
"Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes," Williams started.
"30 was a very important year. 31 will be too.
"I'm putting out some music next year. With the help of some of my closest friends, I made something I'm going to call my own.
"It's a really special project and you'll get a taste of it in January."
One fan speculated: "SOLO HAYLEY IS COMING."
Another said: "Wait WHAT?! I NEED AIR."
A third joked: "New music same dying phone battery."
Paramore, the band Williams founded alongside drummer Zac Farro, have not released an album since 2017's After Laughter.
Williams has previously said she envisioned herself being in the band for a long time yet - which could mean her special project may not infringe on her current stance with the group.
Speaking about the band's future back in March, she told L'Odet: "In moving forward, if the three of us are happy, then we will just do whatever we want to do.
"If that means collaborating with each other, bringing other friends in to collaborate - there are seven band members when we tour. We're all friends and we all make music in different parts, together.
"So I feel like, yes, I want to be in Paramore. I never want to have to put out a press release that says we're over or that I quit or that we're taking a hiatus, which is essentially a marketing ploy these days. I would rather it just be. It just is a part of each of our DNA.
"If we choose to move into it as a brand and put a name on these songs and make a new t-shirt, then awesome. But I've been in a band with them since I was 12; I don't think the band is going anywhere. As long as we're friends, the band just is. It's just in us."
