Hayley Williams has a new EP, Petals for Armor: Self-Serenades, arriving on Dec. 18. From that intimate three-song collection, Williams has shared a poignant, stripped-down version of “Simmer.” Her acoustic vocals-and-guitar take was reworked from the version on Petals for Armor, her self-titled debut, which dropped May 8 and is one of our best albums of the year.
In addition to “Simmer,” Self-Serenades also features the unreleased “Find Me Here” and “Why We Ever” from Petals for Armor.
Of ‘”Simmer,” “If you listen closely, you can hear Alf [Hayley’s dog] sigh dramatically in the opening line. Like mother, like son,” Williams wrote on Twitter.
