Still Into You was released on March 14, 2013, as the second single from Paramore's self-titled fourth album,
Paramore. Different from their previous single "Now", which showed a darker intensity, "Still Into You"
derives from genres such as power pop, pop rock and new wave.
It is currently the highest
charting song of their career.
From the Album
The song finds Williams opening up about her relationship with boyfriend Chad Gilbert, guitarist for New Found
Glory. We hear her recounting
the first night she met his mother, before adding, "and on the drive back
to my house. I told you that I loved ya." Williams told Spin magazine;
"Still Into You is definitely a love song. It's definitely happy. But to me anyway - and obviously I
wrote it so maybe I'm biased, but - it's not a sappy love song. ... We've never done that before, and
honestly I don't have a whole lot of experience writing love songs, or anyways Lyrics that are like this."
Hayley Williams told MTV News this is the kind of tune that she never thought she'd write. "I'm not one to write a lot of love songs, so it surprised me," she laughed. "And we got to the chorus, I remember asking Taylor [York] 'Is this too poppy? Can I do this? Can I sing it like this?' And I remember Taylor saying 'Well, do you like it?' And I was like 'I love it!' And he said 'Well, then who cares? Do it anyway!'
"That's sort of a testament to how the entire writing and recording process went, if we liked something and we believed in it, we did it," she continued. "We didn't back down from it just because it was different or something we hadn't tried before."

The video was directed by Isaac Rentz. Regarding shooting the music video, Jeremy Davis states "I've
realized you can't really consider it making a music video unless you get hurt, because every video,
we end up in pain ... It's awesome to do our own stunts; we might as well be Jackie Chan." Taylor York
adds "A lot of people would hear the song and assume it would be about the story of people still
being in love, but what was so appealing about Isaac's treatment is that he wanted to capture what
love feels like ... He had so many ideas, and it definitely jumped out at us."
