Two Paramore bonus tracks are available now exclusively on Rdio. Check out notes from Hayley Williams below about both 'Escape Route' and 'Native Tongue' and click HERE to listen to them.
'Escape Route' was one of the first songs we started writing but the last song we actually finished. It always had the "classic" Paramore guitar sound... With the opening riff and everything. We really felt a lot of pressure in the beginning of the whole process to write a song like this one... Then through finishing the album realized that that was not the right way to go about it. We all adore this song. We just felt like it might need to live in it's own space separated a little from the newer sounds we're toying with.
'Native Tongue' was such a fun song to write. It was one of the first that I let go of expectations and worry for what was to become of our 4th album... And just wrote whatever came to mind. It's a song about that connection you have with a friend or with your significant other. The way that you communicate with them might be strange and unique to how you'd communicate with the rest of the world. Someone looking in on that might think the language between you and that person as completely foreign... But it makes perfect sense to the two of you. It's your heart's language.
