multi-platinum selling pop-rock band 5 Seconds of Summer drop their latest single, ’Older (featuring Sierra Deaton)’ – listen HERE. ‘Older’ is a surprising shift from the band’s signature pop-rock sound to a soft, tender love ballad. The track was produced by Michael Clifford and co-written with the band by Michael Pollack (Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran). ‘Older’ also features vocals and a co-writing credit from lead singer Luke Hemmings’ fiancée, Sierra Deaton, which sees the couple perform together on a song for the very first time.
The single arrives ahead of their highly anticipated 5th studio album, 5SOS5, which arrives September 23, 2022, and will be released independently via BMG. The deluxe CD and digital versions of the album will have 19 tracks with cassette and vinyl formats also available. The album is available for pre-order now.
5SOS5 will showcase the band’s multi-faceted artistry and growth over their 10-year career, highlighting their dynamic sound, accompanied by reflective and intimate lyrics. With the majority of the new album written by the band and Michael Clifford leading on production, 5SOS5 will include their previously released tracks ‘Blender’, ’Take My Hand’, ’Me, Myself & I’, & their smash hit ’COMPLETE MESS’.
On the eve of their new album, 5 Seconds of Summer will perform an exclusive global livestream The Feeling of Falling Upwards from the world-famous Royal Albert Hall in London on Thursday, September 22.
To commemorate the release of the bands 5th studio album, ‘5SOS5’ the band will perform a set of reimagined versions of songs from their 11 year catalogue plus brand-new songs off the new album, accompanied by an orchestra and choir.
This will be the first time the band have played at the iconic venue but amazingly a special full circle moment, being also only steps away from where the band busked when they first arrived in the UK nearly 10 years ago.
