And boy are we glad they made it through!
The self-titled album might have been the band’s fourth studio album, but it felt like starting from ground zero for Hayley Williams, Taylor York and Jeremy Davis.
“Every morning I would wake up and we'd go into the studio, and it was like, 'I don't know anything; I'm just going in and we're going to make music.'”
But it seems that lack of a plan ended up working for them as Taylor revealed how the difficult time they were having made it all happen in the end:
“We had writer's block pretty badly one time, and these interludes just happened. They're really different… [they've got] ukulele, [they're] really just weird for us, but it felt like we had to write those to continue writing the record. So I feel like they tell some sort of story; they're more like mini songs than interludes.”
We’re already loving what we’ve been hearing, and we can’t wait for more!
The whole rediscovery vibe of this new album is definitely up our alley!
