Hayley Williams Reveals Boygenius Collaboration 'Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris'


Hayley Williams is not only celebrating her own “personal journey through femininity, with it’s endless facets” this International Women’s Day, but revealing that she’s got a collaboration coming up with three women who sing and rock as hard as she does.

On Sunday (March 8), Williams, in the spirit of honoring “the feminine wonder that connects literally everyone and everything,” shared the handwritten lyrics to “Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris,” a collaboration with boygenius — a.k.a. Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus — that she’ll be releasing soon. The indie supergroup provided backing vocals to the song, and Williams is clearly thrilled to be working with them as she prepares for the release of her solo album, Petals for Armor.

“they are just 3 of the incredible women who i get to know and grow alongside in this life,” she wrote on Twitter. “can’t wait to release this song and more.”

The lyrics incorporate all of the flowers mentioned in its title, and each blossom makes an appearance in the chorus, which slightly changes on the two pages Williams revealed: “Roses roses roses roses / Show no concern for colors of a violet / Lotus lotus lotus lotus / Hopes it won’t spark / Envy in your irises.”
