Hayley Williams is back with a brand new fan-centric music video.
On Tuesday (Aug. 4), the Paramore frontwoman released the music video for “Pure Love.”
Since making music videos has become a little bit challenging due to the current pandemic, Williams decided to get some help from the people she appreciates the most; her fans.
“Hello friends,” the singer begins in a lengthy letter to her followers.
“The biggest and most wonderful love of my life, lasting over half my life at this point is Paramore. It was a strange source of healthy tension to step out of my musical home to explore new terrain and give voice to parts of me that, prior to Petals for Armor, I had yet to acknowledge.”
She continues: “The year I had planned would’ve seen many of us gather together to celebrate a discovery of new worlds within ourselves and I couldn’t wait to unleash myself on stage, once again. What’s that saying about God laughing at our plans?
With the pandemic leaving many of us stranded and disconnected from one another, I thought of a way to celebrate some times we have already shared. It also gives me another way to celebrate the big love I feel for Paramore. Thank you for participating in this video compilation. To the good ol’ days and the future ones too.”
The new music video features footage of Williams in the recording studio as well as fan-submitted clips of Paramore performing during their “comeback” tour for their fifth studio album, After Laughter.

Petals for Armor was released earlier this year. The record debuted at the number one spot on the Alternative Albums chart, number one on the Rock Albums chart, and number three on the US Album Sales chart.
