Paramore are doing another BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge!! Deets below. In case you’re unfamiliar, the thing Live Lounge is known for is the covers. For their last Live Lounge appearance in 2018, Paramore covered Drake’s “Passionfruit.” Before that, Hayley did “Don’t Start Now” by Dua Lipa for her Live Lounge during her solo era. (Less famous, but my personal fav, is the band’s Live Lounge cover of Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody” from 2009.)
What do we think they’re gonna cover for this one??? I’ve seen fans speculating a SZA song, which would certainly be rad.
Hayley told Clara for BBC Radio 1 (they REALLY love BBC) that her astrological big 3 are Capricorn sun (which we knew), Virgo moon (LOL), Gemini rising (LOLOLOL)
Since “Thick Skull” is my favorite track from “This Is Why,” and I make the rules around here, I am going to show some favoritism and link a couple cool things I saw about it this last week:
SO many great pics being posted/published this past week! Way too many for me to include here… Highly recommend checking out Hayley’s IG feed in addition to their official band account (she hadn’t posted to her grid for like forever and dumped a ton of pics on there all at once the other day).
Sorry to exhibit stan tendencies, but this edit made me scream, cry, throw up, etc. SO GOOD 😭
Misc. tweets from the peeps 🤲
Also, a bit of business: nothing’s set in stone, but I’m highly considering rebranding this Substack soon. I think I want to broaden the scope (ewwww sorry for the tech startup speak, I have corporate brain rot and can’t think of a better way to say that) and talk about other music. Maybe. I’m undecided. Hopefully those of you who are in it for the Paramore will be cool with that. In any case I’d still want to do a monthly Paramore roundup for the heads.
Anyway, thanks for being here in any case! I’ll keep y’all posted.
