Hayley Williams has finally released part three of her Petals For Amor album project, her first solo record away from Paramore.

Williams began releasing material from the project earlier this year, with a five-track EP coming for Petals For Amor back in Feb, and another five tunes dropping for Petals For Amor II in late April.

Now we’ve got the full thing, with the singer-songwriter dropping Petals For Amor III which includes recently-teased singles ‘Taken’ and ‘Pure Love’. In addition, the record features three more tunes; ‘Sugar On The Rim’, ‘Watch Me While I Bloom’ and ‘Crystal Clear’.

Petals For Armor is very special to me and it encapsulates a moment in time that I am always going to hold dear,” Williams explained in a statement.

“I learned a lot of lessons writing this album… some of them I am still learning. I wrestled with my rage, defeated apathy, and felt the full spectrum of my femininity.”

Check out ‘Pure Love’ by Hayley Williams:

“My stubborn heart softened up to let out rotted feelings and other feelings grew. I even fell (not dove) deeply in love, in spite of the fear that love could be hopeless. Don’t be fooled though, I am still a fantastical mess!”

“Our lives are never neatly wrapped up and tied with a bow. The stories are infinite, with pain and hope tangled up in each of them,” Williams continued. “I am fully surrendering these particular stories now to all of you, in effort to best live (and write about) the next ones…

“Thank you again for caring. You didn’t owe me that. I am full of love for you. Now, just enjoy the damn music!”

Williams also premiered the video for ‘Dead Horse’ from the part two of the album. The video is directed by bandmate, Zac Farro from Paramore.
