Rdio Edition of “PARAMORE” Features Two Exclusive Bonus Tracks; Full Album Stream Available only on Rdio for Free During Release Week
SAN FRANCISCO, April 9, 2013 [FleshEatingZipper]– Rdio (www.rdio.com) and Fueled by Ramen recording group Paramore have announced the band’s highly-anticipated, new self-titled album “PARAMORE” will stream exclusively on Rdio starting April 9. In addition, Rdio will feature two bonus tracks from the GRAMMY®-nominated group that will not be available through any other music streaming services. The exclusive free streaming of “PARAMORE” will continue through April 15 and allows fans to listen to the full album, including the current hit singles “Now” and “Still Into You.”
In addition, Rdio will feature two bonus tracks, “Escape Route” and “Native Tongue” from the band that were created during the recording of the new album. Both are new, previously unreleased songs that will be available exclusively to Rdio listeners, and they will continue to be available only on Rdio after the one-week exclusive album stream.
“We normally don’t even write enough songs to have b-sides, but this time around we wrote too many songs for the album,” says Hayley Williams of Paramore. “These tracks are both songs we adore, but we felt they deserved to live in their own space compared to the rest of the record. I’m happy everyone will have a deeper look into who we were as people when these songs originated in the beginning stages of the album.”
In support of the featured content, Rdio has created two dynamic TV spots that will include the band along with material from their new album. These spots will air during episodes of high profile TV appearances from Paramore on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! (April 11) and TBS’ Conan (April 30). The spots will also air during tonight’s episode of The Voice on NBC, as well as during additional programming over the coming weeks on networks including the CW, MTV, and VH1.
“Paramore has created a definitive place in the music scene with a trademark inescapable sound and talent beyond their years,” says Drew Larner, CEO of Rdio. “The Rdio team is thrilled to be teaming up with the band to deliver exclusive content around the new release and look forward to supporting them on what will surely be another massively successful album.”
Paramore – singer Hayley Williams, bassist Jeremy Davis, and guitarist Taylor York – will celebrate the arrival of “PARAMORE” with a North American headline tour, set to embark April 25th at Houston’s Bayou Music Theatre and then travel the continent through mid-May before touring Europe and South America this summer.
