"PFA ll is the perfect interlude between where PETALS began and where it’s going," Williams said in a press release. "Part lll 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. The latest single, “Dead Horse,” offers strength back to a younger, weaker version of myself. I feel like all of this needed to be said in order to embody the kind of woman I hope to be."

Petals For Armor is due out in full on May 8. Read The FADER's 2017 cover story on Williams here.
