Paramore release new song 'The News'.

"Shut your eyes but it won’t go away / Turn on / Turn off / The news," laments frontwoman Hayley Williams in Paramore's just-released new song, 'The News' - the second single from the band's highly anticipated sixth studio album, 'This Is Why' (out next year on February 10th).

About the new song, Williams says: "The News is one of those songs that came together pretty quickly and felt exciting from the start. It feels like a happy medium between classic Paramore angst and bringing in some influences we’ve always had but never exploited. Watching Zac track drums for this one was one of my favourite memories from the studio. Lyrically, it probably explains itself. The 24-hr news cycle is just impossible to comprehend. And I feel a pang of guilt when I unplug to protect my headspace. The common reaction, or non-reaction, seems to be dissociation. Not one of us is innocent of that and who could blame us?"
