“We had to move forward and test our songwriting and progress. It was the greatest thing we could do—we were hungry for something new and exciting. It felt like starting the band again!” vocalist/guitarist Luke Hemmings says about the track.

“I loved that new wave could be really melancholy, but also up,” vocalist/drummer Ashton Irwin adds. “It had romanticism and anger, but also energy and colour. That’s exactly what we wanted for our new music.”

“Finally… It’s been 3 years since our last album and we are so ready to share new music with the world,” 5SOS told fans with the release of their first new single, “Want You Back.” 

“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.”
