Hayley Williams has shared a cover of Björk’s ‘Unison’ following a fans request that she cover a cut from the eclectic Icelandic artist.
“Someone asked me to do a song a while back,” Hayley wrote on Twitter. “I’d actually hoped to cover a different song of hers live this year but i guess that will have to wait until some other time… anyway, this one has to be in my top 5 – ‘Unison’. apologies for the crudely casual rendition. gnite!”
Although Hayley Williams bashfulness makes her so unbelievably charming, we simply won’t stand for her comments about it being a “crudely casual” rendition. It’s stark, beautiful and moving — Something about Hayley’s voice is so completely soul-nourishing.

This year, Hayley Williams unveiled her debut solo offering, Petals For Armour. It was a completely shattering, stunning body of work. The album spawned a slew of delicious remixes.
Back in June, English synth-pop royalty Hot Chip offered a glorious pop remix of album stunner ‘Dead Horse’. The remix had us yearning to dance in a sweaty house party with strangers.
Glass Animals also gave ‘Dead Horse’ the remix treatment. It’s a more frenetic, menacing take on the track, but one that we love equally.
Hayley Williams herself has been crushing it during this period of self-isolation. During lockdown, Williams has kept herself busy and well engaged with fans, sharing videos on Instagram of herself covering songs such as ‘Drew Barrymore’ by SZA and ‘Smoke Signals’ by Phoebe Bridgers.
