In a new interview with Spin, Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams talks about the themes of the band's upcoming self-titled album, explaining that much of it has to do with ignoring the negative reactions change can bring and pushing through them to acheive what you want.
“[T]here was this thread throughout the album of wanting to be able to grow up and move forward. And when you do that in your life, there's always people that are going to try to hold you back,” Williams said of the upcoming album. “It's about those people, and it's about not listening to that but listening to your heart, and what do you want out of life? Who do you want to to be? Versus all this outside influence that I think we get so caught up in, especially in the age of the Internet and all the different opinions that we hear so loudly every day.”
