Paramore has released a new single off of their new upcoming album called 'After Laughter'.

This new song is called 'Told You So' and a new music video has been released for it. This new song is evident of the band's new musical direction which is different from their previous work.

Paramore used to have a sound similar to the punk rock genre. This formula worked in the earlier part of the '00s, but the band changed their sound for the self-titled album back in 2013.

Over the last few years some band members left, but have now since reunited. The band's 2017 sound though is even different to their 2013 effort.

The first single off the new album is called 'Hard Times' and that had an obvious '80s inspired sound to it.

'Told You So' is a lot simpler and sounds more like an indie rock band. Usually bands that change their sound divide fans, but Paramore has managed to satisfy the majority of its old fans with the new material.

In my opinion, 'Told You So' sounds great, even though it's on the short side. My only gripe is that it's too short as the song is only 3 minutes and 9 seconds long.

The chorus sounds simple and is catchy once you hear it more than once.

I have to admit though, the song is not catchy the first time you listen to it. You need to hear it a couple more times to remember the beat.

Anyway, the new album 'After Laughter' releases on May 12th.

I'll try my best to put up a full review of the album to let you guys know what the rest of the songs are like. You can watch the music video for the new song below.
