American rockers Paramore have dropped a surprise remix album titled Re: This Is Why featuring notable alternative LGBTQIA+ acts.

The revamped album features reimagined versions of tracks from their latest studio album, This Is Whywhich came out earlier this year.

Re: This Is Why includes contributions from LGBTQIA+ artists Julien Baker, Claud and Wet Leg, Remi Wolf, and Romy.

Speaking on the new album, vocalist Hayley Williams says: “We’ve long wanted to recognize the connection we have with some of the artists who’ve influenced us as a band and/or who have cited our band as an influence.

“Some of the songs have been remixed sort of classically, while others were reworked or rewritten. It’s incredible to hear all our worlds colliding. We sent This Is Why – the record – out into the world early this year, with all its messages of disdain, distrust, and sobering self-examination. This is the Reply.”
