5 Seconds Of Summer Release ‘Me, Myself & I’
Multi-platinum selling pop-rock band 5 Seconds of Summer have released their new single ‘Me, Myself & I’ – listen HERE. Theemotionally-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).
Of the song, Luke states, “’Me, Myself, and I’ is a really exciting song for us to have on the record that we’ve spent the last two years making. We’re all big fans of Jon Bellion and when he sent us the idea, we instantly connected with it. So much of what we had been writing lyrically was extremely introspective and this song fit like a puzzle piece with the rest of the album. We then ended up finishing it with Jon, Jason, Pete and Mick.”
Luke adds, “‘Me Myself and I’ explores the emotional cycle of feeling like you can do everything on your own and that you don’t need anyone else, but eventually realizing that sometimes you push away the best things in your life. We love this song and hope other people connect with it as much as we do.”
Additionally, the band has announced their highly anticipated 5th studio album, 5SOS5, which will arrive on September 23, 2022, and will be released independently via BMG. The deluxe CD and digital versions of the album will have 19 tracks with cassette and vinyl formats also available. The album is available for pre-order NOW.
