The creepiness that is Hayley Williams Petals for Armor saga continues!
On Thursday (Feb. 6), the Paramore vocalist unveiled the music video for the fourth single off her much-anticipated solo debut Petals for Armor. Titled “Cinnamon,” the four-minute clip continues the singer’s storyline that began with “Simmer.”
The upbeat new track begins with Williams post-cocoon waking up in a house, unsure of why she’s there. She stares at everything in awe like it’s all brand new to her. While she’s inspecting a living area, the fabrics he fabrics take the form of people and start chasing her.
Yes, it’s as creepy as it sounds.
She runs away and locks herself in a room with a bathtub where she sees another one of those living beings, which may or may not be a figment of Williams’ imagination.
Check out the music video for “Cinnamon” above.
“Cinnamon,” “Simmer,” “Simmer (Interlude),” and “Leave it Alone” will all be featured on Williams’ upcoming studio effort. Petals for Armor is due out May 8 through Atlantic Records. Pre-orders are available here.
In case May is too far away, Williams has decided to give fans a treat to hold them until then. The singer has announced plans to release all five songs as a short EP titled Petals for Armor I.
The album will feature “Simmer,” “Leave it Alone,” “Cinnamon,” and two yet-to-be-released tracks.
“There are a lot of themes covered on the album as a whole, and I thought it best to separate some of these themes so that there can be time for everyone to digest some of the songs before we move along to others,” Williams explains.
“It’s a way to include people on the journey in the same way that I experienced it.”
Petals for Armor was produced by Williams’ Paramore bandmate Taylor York.
