The song—which happens to be their first new single in nearly two years—comes after the band began teasing their new record with the #35SOS3ISCOMING hashtag last week. If anything's clear from "Want You Back," it's that this album's going to be a special one. Welcome back, 5SOS!

“Finally… It’s been 3 years since our last album and we are so ready to share new music with the world,” 5SOS tells fans. 

“After spending the last 5 years on the road since the age of 16, it was important we took time to reflect as individuals and now we’re coming back stronger and more unified than ever. These songs mean the world to us and we have held nothing back in writing and recording this album. We’ve been rehearsing a lot of the new songs live and can’t wait to get back out on tour to connect with our incredible fans."

At the end of last year, guitarist Michael Clifford said that fans wouldn't have to wait too much longer for that new album. He explains that the band needed this time to “perfect the new song and direction” they’re taking, wanting to make sure it’s a final product that they’ll be happy with.

“I think when all the new stuff comes out, it's like a departure of our old sound, but it still keeps elements of all of the things we liked about it. It was just time for us to change,” Clifford tells Billboard.

5 Seconds Of Summer released their last album, Sounds Good Feels Good, in 2015, and it looks like 2018 is set to be 5SOS' year.
