Hayley Williams from Paramore says the band's new album has been influenced by Alt-J.

Guitarist and songwriter Taylor was listening to the Mercury Prize winners debut album a lot on the way to the studio apparently - while she admitted in the interview with Absolute Punk that the band as a whole had a lot of electronic music on.

But she added that fans shouldn't expect their stuff to actually sound like that.

"It sounds more like someone let us loose in a blow up castle full of instruments and we just bounced around it in for a few days with... purpose?"

Apparently there will also be some "gothy vibes ... and new hip-hop."

The upcoming album - the first since the departure of brothers Zac and Josh Farro - is self titled and due out later this year.
