Have you ever realized that you've been running away from yourself this whole time? Well, Hayley Williams has and just dropped her solo debut to prove that.
On Wednesday (01/22), the Paramore singer-songwriter released her solo debut single 'Simmer,' off her upcoming studio record Petals for Armor via Warner Music. Along with its premiere, storyboard artist Brian Essig-Peppard, who'd previously worked with Williams and director Warren Fu on Paramore's 'Rose Colored Boy,' shared scenes he'd drawn as they'd conceptualized the music video.
