Paramore's Hayley Williams Performs An Acoustic Version Of "Leave It Alone" From Her Couch & It's Glorious
Hayley Williams's "Leave It Alone" is an already mellow tune that sounds like a relaxing Sunday afternoon. She's released a new video recording of her performing the number with fellow Paramore member Joey Howard that takes place on a couch with closed eyes and bobbing heads. The two make one hell of a combo and they provide a seriously chill experience.
Joey Howard, Paramore's touring bassist, just feels the music, letting the chest-rumbling notes dictate the mood of Williams's minimalist setting. He shares the couch with Williams who's comfortable in her loungewear, quietly singing the tune for one awesome experience.
"We decided to perform live, stripped versions of a few songs from the album in my little makeshift studio room," Williams wrote on Instagram, teasing too more sessions to come. She also playfully clarified the nature of their working relationship: "ive never had a roommate quite as hot as Joey but he doesn’t like me like that, which is fine."
"Leave It Alone" will appear on Williams's solo debut album, Petals for Armor, when it drops on May 8. Other recently released songs like "Simmer" and "Cinnamon" will also appear on it.
🌺 while making Petals For Armor, @jellyquinn & i were roomies. ive never had a roommate quite as hot as Joey but he doesn’t like me like that, which is fine. we decided to perform live, stripped versions of a few songs from the album in my little makeshift studio room. there are 2 others to come but those songs have yet to be released, so won’t to spoil those yet. hope you enjoy this first one. Joery, if you’re reading this - i miss when you made coffee every morning. . . shot on iPhone by @lindseybyrnes
She's also set to head out on a tour in support of the LP on May 13, if such touring still happens. (Right now, widespread cancellations due to the coronavirus concerns have become the new normals.) For her first-ever solo trek, she announced that she's going to be hitting smaller venues. "I crave intimacy, these are small shows — I've been wanting to do this for a long time," she revealed earlier this month on Instagram.
While you wait for the next pair of tunes to drop, check out Williams's relaxing Sunday performance of "Leave It Alone" up above.
