With that sad news comes good news however, As ahead of the release of her debut solo album that is expected to be unveiled on May 8th, Williams has unleashed a new 5-track EP, Petals For Armor II. She explains that it’s “the perfect interlude between where Petals began and where it’s going… Part III isn’t far behind. I needed these songs to help me get to a place where I could name my shame, take inventory of emotional scars, true friends, awful coping mechanisms and discover what I desire for my life.” You can listen to the new EP below:
