5 Seconds of Summer announces fifth studio album

Band drops “Me, Myself & I”

Multi-platinum selling pop/rock band 5 Seconds of Summer have announced the release of its fifth studio album, 5SOS5, for September 23rd via a recent deal with BMG. The deluxe CD and digital versions of the album will have 19 tracks with cassette and vinyl formats also available.

The album will showcase the band’s multi-faceted artistry and growth over their ten 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 leading on production. 5SOS5 includes the new single plus their previously released tracks “Take My Hand” and “Complete Mess,” along with 16 new songs.

The group has released their new single “Me, Myself & I.” The emotionally-driven song is a propulsive break-up anthem that showcases the group’s pop and punk influences with angsty riffs and a huge sing-along chorus. Produced and co-written by Jason Evigan (Maroon 5, Dua Lipa, David Guetta, Jason Derulo), Jon Bellion (Justin Bieber, Halsey, Lauv), Pete Nappi (Gayle, Madison Beer), and Mick Coogan (Charlotte Lawrence, Carlie Hanson). The music video will premiere Friday, May 13th at 5 pm ET/2 pm PT on YouTube.

“Me, Myself & I” was Zane Lowe’s World First Premiere on Apple Music this morning (Wed, May 11th), airing alongside an exclusive interview with the band discussing their new music and forthcoming album.

The band will bring their 2022 Take My Hand World Tour to North America this summer, kicking off on Saturday, June 11th in Vancouver, BC, making stops in Los Angeles, New York City, Nashville and more before wrapping in St. Louis, MO on July 24th.
