After Laughter is the fifth studio album by American rock band Paramore, released on May 12, 2017 through Fueled by Ramen. The album was recorded in Nashville's historic RCA Studio B, marking the first time the group recorded an album in their hometown; it was produced by guitarist Taylor York alongside previous collaborator, Justin Meldal-Johnsen.
Speaking about the album's title, Williams said "After Laughter is about the look on people's faces when they're done laughing. If you watch somebody long enough, there's always this look that comes across their face when they're done smiling, and I always find it really fascinating to wonder what it is that brought them back to reality. So, that's what After Laughter is."
