Whatever it is, we don't have long to wait to hear it.

Hayley Williams has been doing an awful lot of teasing and drip-feeding of information over the past few weeks, but it appears that it is all coming to a head tomorrow. 

She has revealed in a post on Instagram that she is releasing a record called 'FLOWERS FOR VASES / descansos' tomorrow (February 05). 

You can check out the post, along with some artwork, below:

And she has added this bit of context via her Instagram Story:

"This isn’t really a follow-up to Petals For Armor. If anything, it’s a prequel, or some sort of detour between parts 1 and 2 of Petals. Whatever it is, it has two names: ‘Flowers For Vases’ and ‘descansos’.

I had written a long and poetic press release but man, after 16 years of being in the music business, 6 albums, and a lot of “strategies” for how to “roll-out” a project the right way… writing more words in an attempt to describe better words I’ve written for the album at hand just seemed so boring and silly. So I deleted what I had and this is all I’ll leave you with:

- I wrote and performed this album in its entirety. That’s a career first for me

-  I recorded it at my home in Nashville, the home at which I’ve resided since Paramore released After Laughter

- 2020 was really hard but I’m alive and so my job is to keep living and help others to do the same.

- Yes, Paramore is still a band.

Hope you enjoy FLOWERS FOR VASES / descansos. If you don’t, better luck next time."

Until it drops, have a little listen to the beautiful cover of Massive Attack's 'Teardrop' that Hayley released recently:

And here's 'Simmer', the song that kicked off the whole of this solo era:
