Hayley Williams has officially released the second part of her Petals For Armor project. The five-track EP contains four songs that the Paramore singer previously issued — “Roses/Lotus/Iris/Violet,” “Why We Ever,” “Over Yet” and “My Friend” — as well as a new track titled “Dead Horse.”
Williams said in a statement, “PFA II is the perfect interlude between where Petals began and where it’s going…Part III isn’t far behind. I needed these songs to help me get to a place where I could name my shame, take inventory of emotional scars, true friends, awful coping mechanisms and discover what I desire for my life.”
She added, “The latest single, ‘Dead Horse,’ offers strength back to a younger, weaker version of myself. I feel like all of this needed to be said in order to embody the kind of woman I hope to be.”
Williams announced Petals For Armor as her first solo album back in January, and released her first five-track EP in February. The full album, including Petals for Armor Part III, arrives on May 8th.
