There”s a lot of information to parse from the 58-second clip Paramore released to tease the arrival of “Now,” the group”s new single out Jan. 22. The track comes from “Paramore,” the rock band”s next album -and first to feature them as a trio- out April 9. Justin Meldal-Johnson produced the album, the group’s first since 2009’s “Brand New Eyes” and the 2010 departure of founding members/brothers Josh and Zac Farro. The band is now singer Hayley Williams, bassist Jeremy Davis and guitarist Taylor York.

Five things we learned from the trailer:
*If the video is to be believed, the song was cut primarily live (or that could just be for effect).
*The members of Paramore make lousy ballet dancers, but have mad basketball skills.
*There’s some serious handclapping going on in on the song, and strings.
*”Now” opens with a beautiful, haunting vocal refrain before exploding into guitars and drums.
*Wrapping a dog in bubble wrap never gets old, unless you’re the dog.
