Why Paramore passed on New Moon

January 8th, 2010

Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams spoke to MTV News at the People’s Choice Awards and explained why the band passed on the opportunity to appear on the New Moon Soundtrack.

“Honestly, I had a good time being a part of the first one. They asked us if we wanted to do the second one, and I said no. I didn’t want to force anything. They did come to us really early, like before they knew if they would use it. We wanted it to be genuine.”

But Paramore haven’t ruled out participating in the soundtrack for the third “Twilight” installment, “Eclipse.”

“We’ll see what happens in the future. I don’t know — if it feels genuine. If we write a song, and I feel like it goes with it, I wouldn’t turn it down, but I wouldn’t force it.”
