5 SECONDS OF SUMMER Share New Single ‘Old Me’
Blending modern R&B sounds with guitars and snares, 5 Seconds Of Summer provide a romantically nostalgic look back at their lives with Old Me.
Following up from their previous bangers, Old Me is a lyrically sweet, mellower tune that features even more of Luke Hemming’s superior falsetto throughout. With the latest release from their upcoming album, CALM, 5SOS take the sound down a notch but up the sentiment ten-fold. It is an anthem about tenacity, encouraging the listener and themselves to keep pushing along even in the face of adversity and to ignore the haters.
The accompanying lyric video is a cute time capsule of the band members’ lives. These throwback images and clips are whom 5SOS are thanking for making the decisions that have led to their continued success.
Speaking of the track, lead vocalist Luke Hemmings said:
Old me carries a youthful spirit and follows the narrative of a young person’s life growing up, for better or for worse. Every decision we made, whether right or wrong, has led us to the men we are proud to be today. We were thrown into the public eye at a young age and gratefully had each other at a confusing time. Sometimes it’s important we look back in order to appreciate the journey we’ve been on together.
CALM drops March 27th via Polydor Records.
