The next era of Paramore is officially about to begin.

Hayley Williams and company have announced a new single called “This Is Why,” which will premiere on September 28. You can presave it now.

“This Is Why” is the first fresh offering from Paramore in five years. The group’s most recent album is 2017’s After Laughter, which spawned the single “Hard Times.”

The single announcement comes after Paramore launched a mysterious calendar on their website earlier this week. Initially, Friday’s date, September 16, was left blank but now reads, “presave t.i.w.”

The next marked date on the calendar is Monday, September 19, which promises Paramore will “start spreading the news.”

Meanwhile, Paramore is set to launch a U.S. tour in October, marking the band’s first live dates since 2018.
