Calling it an “almost remix” LP, Paramore have announced plans for ‘Re: This Is Why.’
Taking to their social media platforms last week, the rockers started teasing the forthcoming release (that will feature re-imaginings, remixes, written songs and collaborations) in tandem with the first anniversary of the record’s title track.
In a statement about the project, scheduled for release on Friday (10.06,) the band’s posted on X (formerly Twitter) with:
“We’ve long wanted to recognize the connection we have with some of the artists who’ve influenced us as a band and/or who have cited our band as an influence.” “Re: This Is Why is almost a remix album. Some of the songs have been remixed sort of classically, while others were reworked or rewritten.” “It’s incredible to hear all our worlds colliding. Out 10/6.”
Though the formal track list has yet to be confirmed, the group’s fans have been prognosticating about the possibility of Romy from The xx on a fresh version of ‘Liar’, with Remi Wolf (who’ll support Paramore on tour in Australia and New Zealand in November) expected to collab on ‘You First’.
