Last year, former Paramore founder, Josh Farro had revealed that he would be releasing his first solo album under the moniker, Farro. At the time, he released the lead single off the impending record, “Cliffs.” A month after that, he released the second single off of Walkways, “On a Wire.” With a little under a day left until the official release of the new album, he’s letting his followers listen to the complete debut early.
Premiering exclusively on Billboard, the musician spoke to the music publication about the record and how it has been a longtime coming. “It’s been a long time coming, but the day is finally here,” Farro said. “Walkways is a great representation of the musical journey I’ve been on over the last year.”
Listen to the new album below.
Since the Farro brothers left Paramore in 2010, the two have worked on several projects, but sadly, nothing seemed to stick. But now, six years later, it looks like Farro is here to stay. During the sit down, he also revealed just how this idea came t be.
“I started to do the album with an engineer friend of mine, but I really wanted to do it with a producer. I was randomly introduced to Jacquire King. He was on board, and next thing you know, we’re doing pre-production [in 2014]… I signed on with new management and once I had the album done with Jacquire, we started strategizing. We decided it was missing a few strong — I guess you could call them singles. I started writing again and I was really pleased with what I came up with.”
Walkways is set to be released on Friday, Feb. 5. Even though there has been no confirmation of a tour, it sounds like one might be on the horizon.
