Paramore's 'Brand New Eyes' Is About Josh Farro, Hayley Williams Says


Paramore's 'Brand New Eyes' Is About Josh Farro, Hayley Williams Says


The band's most successful album yet which ironically also becomes a breaking point for them mostly talks about Hayley Williams coping with her break-up with Josh Farro.

After addressing her alleged failed solo career, Hayley Williams talked about Paramore's "Brand New Eyes" which Josh Farro claimed to have led them "all growing further apart" instead of getting closer. She admitted "majority" of the album is about the guitarist that she once dated.

"I would say that a large majority of those songs, yes, have to do with the relationship we had and then that we had to mend," she told MTV. "And it was really hard, because we were all friends, and then going through a breakup and going through any kind of tension as a band really affected all the lyrics. ... There are a lot of specifics that I pulled from my experience with just feeling like my face was underneath a boot all the time."

"I think the point of the album was never to point out those things, but hopefully to encourage people who feel that way," she continued. "Because I felt so alone in that fight, that I would never want, especially another young woman, to feel that way, because I know there are a lot of girls I've talked to, fans, go through the same thing in relationships and families, and it just sucks to feel kind of victimized."

According to Josh, he and Hayley broke up during the "Riot!" cycle. After finishing a promotional tour, the band started writing for "Brand New Eyes", and to his dismay Hayley presented lyrics that "were really negative." He stated, "We fought her about how her lyrics misrepresented our band and what we stood for, but in the end she got her way."
