Via a lengthy statement on the band's official website, Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams has revealed that the band are working on their fourth album and have already completed the first track, which is titled "Daydreaming":
"The guys and I went in to record a song for our 4th album about a week and a half ago, it was all very exciting. At the end of our time in the studio, it was clear to us that this was definitely right! So without delaying any longer, we would like to announce that our 4th album's producer is Justin Meldal-Johnsen. And what the heck, we might as well tell you that the one song we recorded will be called 'Daydreaming'."
As Gigwise reports, producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen has worked with a number of artists including Beck, Nine Inch Nails and M83. While the band is apparently making progress with the new disc, Williams stated that there's not guarantee it will be out before the end of the year:
"We're working on a pretty strange schedule, by our standards. There has never been so much time and care put into a Paramore album. Usually, we are rushing to make a very strict deadline which so far has just not been right for this record. We cannot assure you it will be out this year."
The last recorded output from Paramore came in July of last year, when the band offered what they called a "singles club", selling one new single a month for three months. Those tracks were "Hello Cold World", "Renegade" and "In The Mourning". The new Paramore record will be the band's first album since the departure of Josh and Zac Farro, who quit the band in December 2010.
