Paramore's Hayley Williams has announced, in a blog post, that the band have decided to scrap their planned music video for “Ain't It Fun,” the third single from their latest, self-titled album.

We first brought you word of the video back in July, followed by a behind the scenes photo from the group's shoot in August.

Jonathan Desbiens, better known as Jodeb, was tapped to direct. No specific details have been provided for cause the video's cancelation, aside from “unhappiness with the direction the video was headed.”

Williams additionally announced that the band have already filmed a new video for “Daydreaming,” their next planned single in the U.K., and will re-shoot a video for “Ain't It Fun” in the near future. “Daydreaming” follows videos for singles “Now” and “Still Into You,” as well as a bonus animated video for “Anklebiters.”

Ain't it done?

Hey everybody, it’s Hayley. Back again and I wanted to fill you guys in on something that we’ve been getting a lot of questions about…

We posted a picture a few months ago from behind the scenes of a video we shot for our song, “Ain’t It Fun” … Turns out, the process of making and completing this video has been well, not fun. ZING! To keep things short and BS free, we were not happy with where this video was headed and ultimately, made the decision to pull it. 

Not to worry, though! We have since shot another video… for a song called “Daydreaming”, which we’re releasing as a single for our friends across the pond. Of course, we are planning on shooting another video for “Ain’t It Fun” as soon as we get a chance. When we figure out all the details for that, we’ll tell you! 

So sorry we kept you guys hanging for so long. Thanks for all the excitement and for all the patience, it hasn’t gone unnoticed. No one is more anxious than us to have the right music video for “Ain’t It Fun”. It’s one of our favorite Paramore songs to date and when the time comes, it’s going to have a video worthy of that sentiment. 

Love each and every one of you. See you at the show 🙂
