PARAMORE RELEASE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR NEW TRACK TOLD YOU SO
FROM HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM AFTER LAUGHTER – OUT MAY 12
Paramore have announced the latest track from their hugely anticipated fifth studio albumAfter Laughter, released May 12 and available to pre-order now. Told You So premiered last night as Zane Lowe’s WORLD RECORD and is available to download & stream now, along with a colourful new video directed by Aaron Joseph and Paramore’s own Zac Farro.
After Laughter is the GRAMMY Award-winning band’s first new album in more than four years. Told You So is also available as an instant grat with all After Laughter pre-orders, along with the previously unveiled new single Hard Times, of which the companion video has already earned more than 17 million individual views in its first week of release.
Hard Times has already received ecstatic critical attention, with SPIN hailing the single as “a bit of very classic ‘80s pop songwriting…easily the most danceable thing they’ve recorded.”Paramore “still conduct a consistent fluorescence,” raved Pitchfork, “feeling at times less like a straightforward rock band than a shifting Rubik’s Cube…(‘Hard Times’) is a deliberate simulation of the 1980s – an era of polyglot pop music, where rock would find itself embodied in pop and vice versa.” Billboard declared Hard Times to be “an addictive, Talking Heads-inspired jam that sounds like it could follow “Ain’t It Fun” as a Hot 100 smash.”
Paramore will celebrate the release of After Laughter with an outdoor mini-concert on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 17 US time.
