Paramore reveal ‘Hate To See Your Heart Break’ video

To celebrate the release of ‘Self-Titled Deluxe’, the band have released a new clip for their Joy Williams duet.

There are lots of Paramore treats being thrown our way after the release of ‘Self-Titled Deluxe’ yesterday. First, fans were given a taste of their 2012 demo ‘Tell Me It’s Okay’ and now, a new video for their reworking of ‘Hate To See Your Heart Break’ has been unveiled.

The black-and-white clip, which accompanies the new duet as recorded with frontwoman Hayley Williams and The Civil Wars’ Joy Williams, features the pair in the studio, both recording their vocal takes for the song and laughing and chatting in the studio.

Speaking about the song in a recent blog post, Hayley Williams offered an insight into the pair’s friendship and Joy’s involvement on the new version of the track: “We recorded our vocals (to the original track) in Santa Monica, CA about a week after the Monumentour ended. Joy has been a friend and a mentor of mine since I was just 12 years old. I met her, by fate, about a month into moving to Franklin, TN. She was on her own musical journey and I was chomping at the bit to start my own… (little did I know I would meet the guys like 6 months later). Joy has been an incredible example of strength, perseverance, faith, and grace throughout all the years that I’ve known her. I always wanted to be able to sing like her and being able to duet with her actually felt like an amazing tribute to the inspiration she’s given me. Taylor and his family are also close with Joy and he is actually the one who brought up having her on the song. It’s the first time we’ve ever collaborated with anyone as a band and we’re all really really proud we were able to invite someone into Paramore’s world who completely understands multiple aspects of who we are. Whether you’re a Paramore fan, a Civil Wars fan, or you just like pretty songs… This one will satisfy, I swear!”
