Hayley Williams’ debut solo album Petals For Armor is highly anticipated after a surprise release of the five-song EP Petals For Armor I. Now, Williams has delivered even more good news: boygenius — the Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus trio — will be featured on her album, out in full on May 8th.
Williams has always had a strong relationship with the trio. Baker opened for Paramore during their MontanaFair show back in August of 2017, while Williams actively supported Bridgers’ 2017 debut album Stranger In The Alps.

“She has an innate connection with the deeply emotionally profound and really wants to explore those things in an honest way with people,” Baker said in a phone interview, according to The New York Times. “But also she is a uniquely disarming person.”
Petals For Armor drops in full May 8th.
