Cyrus Bolooki, drummer of New Found Glory, explained how Hayley Williams got the gig to sing on NFG's new love song "Vicious Love" in an interview with Stars Entertainment.
SE: Whose idea was it to have Hayley Williams from Paramore join in on the song “Vicious Love” on your upcoming re-release of Resurrection?
CB: You probably won’t believe this, but it was actually HER idea. The story goes something like this:
We were coming up with ideas for the re-release, and we decided that we wanted to look into having a female singer re-record vocals on “Vicious Love” to make it a duet with Jordan, and Ian, our bass player, had really been pushing for us to try and get in contact with Kacey Musgraves, a country singer who is actually a NFG fan. I guess Hayley knows her or was going to be our way to get in contact with her, so Chad asked Hayley to help out, and upon hearing of our plans, Hayley asked why we weren’t asking her to sing on it, and that she wanted to do it herself. We hadn’t really thought of that idea, especially if it would have seemed like we were pressuring her to do it because of her relationship to Chad and our band, but Hayley insisted that she wanted to do it. So, of course, we weren’t going to say no to that! And the rest is history…
Rest is history... correct! This song will down in rock history! Watch the hilarious music video!
