Paramore's self-titled 2013 album was a huge breakthrough for the band, producing the smash hits "Still Into You" and "Ain't It Fun."  But don't expect a follow-up anytime soon: they're still pondering their next musical move. “We’re in the dreaming-up stage, and figuring out kind of who we want to be next,” singer Hayley Williams tells Billboard. "I think we’re getting there. We haven’t written anything that we’ve loved and thought, ‘This is it, this is the new direction,’ or where we want to be, or who we are. But it’ll happen."

Britney Spears Demos Surface Online

A couple of demos for Britney Spears' 2013 album, Britney Jean, are now online. Both demos, which are untitled and were apparently uploaded months ago but only recently garnered attention, were collaborations with British musician and producer Dev Hynes, a.k.a. Blood Orange. They're a bit darker than the songs that ended up on Britney Jean. Hynes tweeted on Monday, "How do things even leak?? Oh well! Enjoy." In a late 2013 interview with the U.K. newspaper The Guardian, Hynes said he was "so stoked" about writing songs for Britney, but, he added, "They'd always come back with why they didn't…
