After making their grand return back in September, Paramore on Thursday unveiled their latest track, "The News."

The dark, grimacing single follows in the footsteps of the equally haunting "This Is Why," as the latest preview of the album This Is Why, which is out Feb. 10 via Atlantic Records. They had been teasing the song by mailing portions of the song on CD and DMing select lyrics to some of their most devoted fans.

"'The News' is one of those songs that came together pretty quickly and felt exciting from the start," says Hayley Williams. "It feels like a happy medium between classic Paramore angst and bringing in some influences we’ve always had but never exploited. Watching Zac track drums for this one was one of my favorite memories from the studio."

She continues: "Lyrically, it probably explains itself. The 24-hr news cycle is just impossible to comprehend. And I feel a pang of guilt when I unplug to protect my headspace. The common reaction, or non-reaction, seems to be dissociation. Not one of us is innocent of that and who could blame us?”
