Paramore are no stranger to BBC Radio 1, having frequented the Live Lounge with various lineups. Songs they’ve covered include “Love’s Not A Competition (But I’m Winning)” by the Kaiser Chiefs, “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon and “Matilda” by Alt-J. This time, Hayley Williams, Taylor York and Zac Farro took to the studio to perform their single “Hard Times” and a cover of Drake’s summer smash “Passionfruit,” from his latest album More Life.
, the band’s fifth studio album, was released just last month and has been receiving critical praise. They’ve just kicked off a world tour to support the record, in which they’ve been covering Fleetwood Mac’s “Everywhere.” During their Live Lounge performance, the trio also slips in a little bit of the singer-rapper’s “Hold On We’re Going Home,” which was a popular Live Lounge cover choice in 2013. It seems “Passionfruit” has replaced it, having already been covered by Mura Masa. John Mayer has also performed the tune live.
