Paramore revealed today on their official Website that their brand new album Brand New Eyes will be released on September 29th. As Rock Daily previously reported, Hayley Williams and Co. worked with American Idiot producer Rob Cavallo on the new disc. "We made a record that is exactly what we set out to make," Williams said of the follow-up to their smash Riot! on the band's LiveJournal page back in April. "There's fast, there's slow, and in betweenâ€¦ happy, angry, desperate and over it. And I can't believe itâ€™s real." The album's cover art, featuring a dismembered butterfly, is also posted on the band's official site.
First single "Ignorance" is out July 7th, but those Web-savvy Paramore fans have already found a 30-second preview of the track — and the single's cover art — over at Amazon.com. July 7th is also the first day fans can begin pre-ordering the album and get the "Ignorance" ringtone.
"Ignorance" is a fitting title for the album's first single, as Williams told Rolling Stone in December, "I have a lot to say this time around, and thereâ€™s a lot of things I thought I knew that I was absolutely wrong about." So, after pleading "Ignorance," Williams is now seeing everything with Brand New Eyes. The 11-song track list is right here:
3. "Playing God"
4. "Brick by Boring Brick"
5. "Turn It Off"
6. "The Only Exception"
7. "Feeling Sorry"
8. "Looking Up"
9. "Where the Lines Overlap"
10. "Misguided Ghosts"
11. "All I Wanted"
