Paramore has dropped a surprise ‘almost’ remix album titled ‘Re: This Is Why’, featuring reimagined versions of tracks from their latest studio album released earlier this year, This Is Why.
‘Re: This Is Why’ features contributions by Bartees Strange, Claud and Wet Leg; as well as Paramore’s touring partners Foals, The Linda Lindas and Remi Wolf; jazz geniuses DOMi & JD Beck and alternative electronic wizards Panda Bear, Romy & Zane Lowe. ‘Re: This Is Why’ also includes Paramore’s demo of the album track “Sanity.”
Frontwoman Hayley Williams shares: “We’ve long wanted to recognize the connection we have with some of the artists who’ve influenced us as a band and/or who have cited our band as an influence. Some of the songs have been remixed sort of classically, while others were reworked or rewritten. It’s incredible to hear all our worlds colliding. We sent This Is Why – the record – out into the world early this year, with all its messages of disdain, distrust, and sobering self-examination. This is the Reply.”
