Paramore teases new ’This Is Why’ track, “The News”


Paramore is getting ready to deliver “The News.”

That’s the title of another track off the “Misery Business” trio’s upcoming album This Is Why, which, judging by a recent Paramore TikTok, will arrive next week on December 8.

The TikTok features a disembodied hand packing an envelope with a CD labeled “The News” and “12/8.” It also tags the handle of a Paramore fan, suggesting that Hayley Williams might be doing a repeat of when she hand-delivered a CD featuring a new solo song to a fan’s house last year.

Paramore has also updated the cryptic calendar on the band’s website, which has been teasing This Is Why announcements over the last couple months. The next listed date is this Thursday, December 1, which reads, “break the news,” while “delivery” happens on December 8.

This Is Why, the follow-up to 2017’s After Laughter, arrives February 10. “The News” will be the second track to be released off the record following the title track.

Paramore will launch a world tour in 2023, which will come to the U.S. in May. They’ll also be opening for select dates on Taylor Swift‘s 2023 U.S. stadium tour.
