It's a mere two weeks into 2009, and prophets that they are, MTV has already called the biggest upcoming records of the year. Megastars like dad-punks Green Day and how-can-we-miss-you-if- you-won't-go-away beasts U2 will no doubt blow our collective minds with new albums, but lest you were afraid Nashville wouldn't be represented, Paramore is working on a little TBA gem that will take us all back to the tender tender feelings of junior high. Check it:
With plenty of emotional rollercoaster moments to draw from over the past tumultuous year -- during which the band went from little-knowns to huge stars -- Paramore are recording their next album in Nashville and plan to have something in stores by the summer. "[We've been getting inspired by] life, really. It's not one specific instance or record or book or anything. We're constantly taking in new music -- that's what we're passionate about -- but I think life has given us a lot to say, and I'm really excited," singer Hayley Williams said in December. "[Guitarist] Josh [Farro] has been writing really cool riffs and really cool music that I can't wait to write over. Lyrically, I think it's going to be a very different record -- we've learned a lot about relationships and friendships and life in general, and I'm stoked because I don't really know what I'm going to say about it, but I've got a lot that I want to get out."
