When we talked to Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams back in May, she told us the Tennessee punk-pop outfit’s upcoming album, brand new eyes, is “really soley based on friendship and betrayal, losing people you thought would be there forever, and then maybe either finding them again or not finding them again.”
The album’s first single, “Ignorance,” is available for streaming today, and lyrics like “where’s your gavel, your jury? / What’s my offense this time? / You’re not a judge but if you’re gonna judge me / Well, sentence me to another life” have us thinking she was not fooling about the “friendship and betrayal” bits.
If you pre-order the album (due Sept. 29) on iTunes starting today, you’ll get “Ignorance” for free; Spin.com also has a stream of it here. So tell us, Music Mixers, is “Ignorance” bliss? And what do you anticipate from the rest of brand new eyes, other than rampant lower-case punctuation?
