After weeks of teasing, Hayley Williams has released a new solo album.

The 14-track record, titled Flowers for Vases/Descansos, is available now via digital platforms. It follows Williams’ debut solo effort Petals for Armor, which dropped last May.

“This isn’t really a follow-up to Petals for Armor,” the Paramore frontwoman explains. “If anything, it’s a prequel, or some sort of detour between parts 1 and 2 of Petals. The meaning of the album as a whole is maybe entirely different from diving into each song in particular.”

The lead-up to the surprise record drop included several mysterious social media posts, as well as Williams sending fans packages of disembodied doll parts. She also drove to one fan’s house in particular to drop off a CD including the new song “My Limb.”

Here’s the Flowers for Vases/Descansos track list:

“First Thing to Go”
“My Limb”
“Asystole”
“Trigger”
“Over Those Hills”
“Good Grief”
“Wait On”
“KYRH”
“Inordinary”
“HYD”
“No Use I Just Do”
“Find Me Here”
“Descansos”
“Just a Lover”
