Paramore Share Trippy Video For ‘Running Out Of Time’
Paramore recently released a trippy music video for their latest single, “Running Out of Time,” from their recently released album This Is Why.
Frontwoman Hayley Williams said, “When we first started writing the album I wanted to challenge myself to write about ordinary things. I am horrific at time management and that feels about like the most mundane thing anyone could talk about… seemed like a fun challenge.”
“It kept me from getting all deep and dark which is actually an easier place, internally, for me to dwell,” she added. “Then again, expanding on those feelings isn’t all that different from the anxieties a lot of us feel about living on planet earth in 2023.”
In the video, Williams enters a big guitar case that doubles as a portal that transports the singer into a different dimension. Williams ends up in an alternate universe filled with horse-shaped bushes, huge flowers, and gigantic mushrooms.
Bandmates Taylor York and Zac Farro York are there dressed in monochromatic orange and purple ensembles, while she is in a vintage corset and pink satin pants.
“Intentions only get you so far/ (It was on my list, I swear I meant to get to it)/ A harsh reality to discover, ah/ I’m always runnin’ out of time/ (She’s always runnin’ out of time)/ I’m always runnin’ out of time,” Williams sings on the track’s punchy chorus.
