5 Seconds Of Summer have shared a cover of Zedd, Grey and Maren Morris' single “The Middle.”

(Yeah, we hoped it was a Jimmy Eat World cover, too. But it's still incredible.)

The band turned the poppy jam into an acoustic number for SiriusXM, with harmonies that have us swooning.

Watch their performance below:

This incredible performance follows the release of their massive new single, “Want You Back,” the first track from their new album, along with some massive 5SOS3 tour dates.

“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.”
