Hayley Williams has uploaded a stunning stripped-back cover version of SZA’s hit ‘Drew Barrymore’ which featured on the 2017 album Ctrl.
Williams, who performed live from her home in isolation, posted her version of ‘Drew Barrymore’ to social media alongside the caption “self-serenades/amateur hour”. Later in the post, she admits this cover was one of many performances filmed back in April, that she has “saved up”.
“I’ve been holding out on y’all,” she wrote. “The only constant for me (besides limp ass, unwashed, unfixed hair) in the age of COVID is a guitar and free reign to mess up all my favourite songs.”
The Paramore singer recently released her debut solo effort Petals For Armor which charted at number four in the UK as well as featuring at 18 in the States. She was set to take the record on the road starting this month but has been forced into postponing the dates due to current circumstances.
The planned European tour was due to begin in May but Williams has announced the decision to reschedule the dates, which included a major show at London’s Electric Brixton, until next year. The North American Petals For Armor dates will be rescheduled as well.
More information when the new dates will take place will be available soon. Tickets for both the UK/Europe and North America dates will be honoured the rescheduled dates. However, should you have any other questions about your tickets please reach out to your point of purchase.”
