Before its April 9 release, Paramore are premiering their self-titled fourth album piecemeal throughout the week—and now another batch of songs have arrived. And this time, instead of the usual four-track batch, fans get five—woohoo!
The five newbies, which follow a pair of four-track batches earlier this week (listen here and here), definitely satiate our punk-pop hankerings. The first song, "Still Into You," is the LP's super catchy second single (at 1:56) that was revealed live at SXSW. Next was "Anklebiter" (5:28), which Paramore described as a "rad little jam" in the video intro.
Ukulele (which we heard on "Moving On" earlier this week) returns for "Holiday" (7:48), which features what's possibly a cute wink to the band's record label, Fueled by Ramen: “I’ve been saving money," Hayley Williams sings. "Eating only top Ramen.”
Williams also proclaims her love for the head bob-inducing fourth song, a shout-along punk standout called "Proof" (8:56). Last but not least is the minimal, violin-centered ballad "Hate to See Your Heart Break" (12:10). "I hate to see your heartbreak / I hate to see your eyes get dark, as they close / But I've been there before," Williams sings. Aww!
