This week, eagle-eyed fans spotted one particular clue that has led to theories the speculated new album is arriving sooner than expected.
At the end of last month, various cryptic clues emerged that led to speculation Hayley Williams is planning to release another solo album called Flowers For Vases. Along with her website redirecting to flowersforvases.com, fans began receiving mysterious packages from Williams with doll parts hidden inside.
Then, after debunking one Flowers For Vases Instagram page, Williams posted another cryptic clue that eventually led to the release of her new song “My Limb.” The Paramore frontwoman hand-delivered a CD of the song to a fan’s Nashville home and asked them to leak the new track to the whole world.
Of course, the release of “My Limb” has caused even more theories that Williams has a new full-length album on the way. This week, Williams shared a few more clues that fans believe confirm she has even more music to release.
On Tuesday, she posted a graphic of a wardrobe with haunting eyes peering through the glass. She captioned the Instagram post with “all my demons on display.” Williams has a history of captioning her social media posts with unreleased lyrics. Prior to the release of Petals For Armor‘s lead single “Simmer,” she shared an Instagram photo with lyrics from the song. As well, she did the same thing just before releasing “My Limb” last week.

Williams has also shared a haunting new black and white video of her playing the piano in a dark room. The caption “whatever it is or whatever it was” has many fans convinced these are more lyrics from her unreleased work. The same music also plays on flowersforvases.com which previously had the audio to “My Limb.”

Now, it looks like Williams may have confirmed a Flowers For Vases album is actually happening. On Feb. 2, she sent flowers and vinyl of another unreleased song to Twitter user @ode2trees. They posted a brief clip of the song while showing off the note that came with the flowers which says “flowers for your vases.”

According to one source, which was shared on the r/Paramore Reddit thread, Flowers For Vases has 14 tracks including “My Limb” and “Find Me Here.” The latter song appears on Williams’ Petals For Armor: Self-Serenades EP which was released last year. As well, some of the other reported tracks on the album are “Asystole,” “Just A Lover” and “Good Grief.”
Despite all of these clues, Williams has yet to officially confirm if a full-length album is actually happening. While we wait to see if the rumors are true, “My Limb” is available to stream below. Currently, the song is unavailable on streaming platforms.
