HAYLEY WILLIAMS OFFICIALLY RELEASES “COLOUR ME IN”

Hayley Williams officially released her cover of Broadcast’s “Colour Me In,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services via Atlantic Records [HayleyWilliams.lnk.to/ColourMeInPR]HERE.  The track was previously released for 24 hours on voter registration compilation Good Music To Avert The Collapse Of American Democracy: a 40-track album featuring previously-unreleased recordings by everyone from R.E.M. to Phoebe Bridgers to Death Cab For Cutie, and many more.  “I really love Broadcast. It was hard to choose which song of theirs I wanted to cover,” says Hayley, “but I feel like this one hits me in a sweet spot that’s strangely comforted by longing and melancholy. I recorded this days before lockdown last year and it’s just been floating around in the ether. So happy it’s got a place to land now. Enjoy.”

“Colour Me In” follows Hayley’s surprise release of album FLOWERS for VASES / descansosearlier this year“In a world that often requires us to ignore our deepest needs, Hayley Williams does not provide a light at the end of the tunnel or a closed door, but a new body, a new tongue, and possibly a new frame of reference to survive and even thrive,” writes NPR. FLOWERS for VASES / descansos came shortly after the recent release of Williams’ acoustic EP, PETALS FOR ARMOR: SELF-SERENADESPETALS FOR ARMOR: SELF-SERENADES features stripped-down new renditions of “Simmer” and “Why We Ever” – both originally found on Williams’ internationally acclaimed debut solo album, PETALS FOR ARMOR  – alongside the previously unheard “Find Me Here.”
