LISTEN: Paramore’s Epic New Song


For Paramore singer Hayley Williams, therapy is writing an epic rock song with a chorus that’s more addictive than Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies.

In advance of the September 29 release of brand new eyes, the Tennessee band just leaked its catchiest track: “Brick by Boring Brick,” a nearly-five-minute-long epic that finds the fashion-minded Williams transforming her desire for real love into pure ear candy, as the band shifts between the anthem’s diverse musical movements.

The song — which SPIN’s Mikael Wood calls “the album’s philosophical centerpiece” in his review of brand new eyes — was posted to Paramore’s website Tuesday. It follows the recent release of brand new eyes‘ angry first single, “Ignorance,” and its music video.

If you can’t get enough of the tune, catch Paramore on tour this fall, when they hit intimate clubs beginning with an album-welcoming show in Pomona, CA.
