Hayley Williams drops new 'Leave It Alone'

The Paramore frontwoman is gearing up for the release of her debut solo album, "Petals for Armor," which will arrive on May 8.

Williams has now unveiled the second single from her forthcoming album, "Leave It Alone," for which she reconnected with her Paramore bandmates Taylor York and Joey Howard.

The poignant ballad arrived alongside an accompanying visual helmed by Warren Fu, who has previously collaborated with the songstress on the video for "Simmer."

The clip for "Leave It Alone" continues the storyline initiated in the visual for "Simmer," with Williams waking up in a cocoon as a butterfly.

The whimsical video alternates between scenes of the vocalist struggling to escape her cottony cocoon, and others in which she is wandering through the woods as her human self.

"You don't remember my name somedays/ Or that we're related/ It triggers my worry/ Who else am I gonna lose before I am ready?" she croons.

In a recent sit-down with Zane Lowe for Beats Radio 1, Williams opened up about the inspiration behind "Leave It Alone."

"It really sucks that you do have to dig through the dirtiest shit to find like the diamonds or something, you know? Like you've got to burn all of it off. My family went through something insane in the middle of... I'm working. I'm doing all this work on childhood stuff and traumas, and I'm terrified of losing people obviously," she explained, also alluding to the passing of her grandmother in 2018.

Williams' debut solo effort, "Petals for Armor," will arrive three years after Paramore released its fifth studio album, "After Laughter," which marked the return of original bandmate Zac Farro on drums.

While the group has been on unofficial hiatus since 2018, the frontwoman admitted to Entertainment Tonight that she does not "really know what's next for Paramore."
