Paramore’s New Album Is Almost Done

Paramore has been relatively quiet in the last few months. They started recording their fifth album last March, and shared plenty of studio tidbits throughout the recording process. In October, they finished recording all the instruments and vocals, leaving just mixing and mastering to be done.

While the band puts the finishing touches on the album and plots the big release, they have kept fans in the loop. Here’s what they shared in November and December 2016:

Now that the new year is here, the fifth album should be just around the corner. Hayley assures us that they’re almost done!

Paramore is down to just Hayley and Taylor York. Bassist Jeremy Davis left in December 2015. However, last June their ex-drummer Zac Farro suddenly appeared in the behind-the-scenes shots Hayley shared on Twitter! In August, Zac spoke on Billboard’s Alt In Our Stars podcast. He talked about rekindling his friendship with both Hayley and Taylor, playing on the new album, and how the new music sounds. He has not written any of the songs, and so far is not officially part of the band again. But he’d be happy to join them again as more than just a studio drummer.

With Jeremy gone and Zac kind of back, it will be exciting to hear how the music changes. Hayley and Taylor were the principle songwriters on Paramore, so there may not be a big change in style. But what about the topics? Will Jeremy’s departure and Zac’s return to the band come up?

Hayley also just married her longtime boyfriend, New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert, last February. Will married life affect the new music? Perhaps more lovey lyrics and cheerful music? On the other hand, Hayley and Chad have been together for eight years, so maybe there won’t be much of a change after all. We’ll find out soon enough!

Check up on all we know about Paramore’s upcoming fifth album. The new album will be out in the next few months, so things are about to get exciting! Keep checking back here for all the latest Paramore music news.
