For the deluxe reissue of Paramore‘s 2013 self-titled album (out today, Nov. 24), the band has released a music video to accompany a new version of the song “Hate to See Your Heart Break,” re-recorded with new vocals from The Civil Wars’ Joy Williams.

“When we met, I was 12 and Joy was like 18 or 19, I think,” Hayley Williams told NPR. “I was already a fan of hers. It was fate that we became friends. She was always giving great advice and listening to songs I’d written or big plans I had about becoming a real artist… I love that I got to sing this with someone who I have shared my pains and my stories with for quite some time. Someone whom I know well and who I’ve sat and listened to as they share their own pains. It was never meant as romantic song between lovers but always a song to a friend. Now it’s even more special. I think of it as an ode to sisterhood.”
