Read what Josh Farro has to say regarding the past few years since leaving Paramore…
“My brother and I left and I was pretty adamant about not being in a band again. But sure enough, in a few months I was playing music with some friends. My brother later on joined [Novel American] — if you even want to call it a band; we never even played a show. It was fun, we were writing, but we couldn’t seem to get past a certain point with some of the members. It wasn’t gelling… Eventually it fizzled out.
One day I was like, “What am I doing? I want to make music. I want to make an album.” So I just did it myself. Zac had his project going on and he was busy with that, so I did it on my own. I had some songs I’d co-written with some guys in the past, and I didn’t want them to go to waste. I took a few of those, wrote some of my own, and then co-wrote a few more. Next thing you knew, I had a full album written.
I started to do the album with an engineer friend of mine, but I really wanted to do it with a producer. I was randomly introduced to Jacquire King. He was onboard, and next thing you know, we’re doing pre-production [in 2014]… I signed on with new management and once I had the album done with Jacquire, we started strategizing. We decided it was missing a few strong — I guess you could call them singles. I started writing again and I was really pleased with what I came up with. One of those songs was ‘Cliffs’.”
