Hayley Williams from Paramore has a new project, and there’s teasing happening ‘online’ now

What is Petals For Armor? When will we hear stuff? Is it possible to be too excited?

Hayley Williams – she of Paramore and ‘all round legend’ status – is set to drop solo material this year.

She announced the news a few days back, posting on her birthday that “30 was a very important year. 31 will be too.”

“I’m putting out some music next year (i.e. now this year, we’re late – Ed),” she wrote. “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.”

Obviously, none of us stop there. We’re all Paramore stans, right? So, off investigating we go, and discover that towards the end of 2019 a new Instagram account – @petalsforarmor – appeared, with Paramore and ‘people’ from Hayley’s hair product company Good Dye Young following it. Photos and videos began to appear, including one which seemed to perhaps, maybe, feature our H’s voice in the background. Then, last night (1st January 2020), she shared a post from the account to her Instagram story. Confirmed. This is ‘the really special project’.

Said post features the caption “rage is a quiet thing”, so keep that in mind for future usage too.

You can check out Hayley’s announcement post, and some other related gubbins below. Eyes peeled, everyone.
