NEW MUSIC: 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER | TAKE MY HAND
Before kicking off their world tour, 5 Seconds of Summer has released a brand new single entitled "Take My Hand." The new track from the Australian outfit is from their upcoming fifth studio album, which will be released independently in partnership with BMG following the group’s departure from Interscope. What makes the forthcoming album even more special is that this is the first project from the Australian band that's fully written and produced by Luke, Calum, Ashton and Michael! "We probably would've made forty, fifty songs for this next album – and yeah – it's been such an incredible process," he told Marvin. He revealed that the four of them have figured out a new sound and have had the freedom to experiment with more unconventional methods. They recently announced they would be going on tour and was accompanied by the release of their single, “Complete Mess,” which dropped back in March. The anthemic single aptly balances an expansive, epic vibe with a contemporary pop sensibility. Its music video — directed by Lauren Dunn (Kali Uchis, 070 Shake, Jack White) and creative direction by Tyler Serebreni of Other Half Creative — acts as a visual extension of the song, characterized by sequences that take on an ethereal, dreamlike quality that perfectly reflect the nature of the track. The 64-date tour will kick off this April in Dublin and hit cities like Paris, New York, Los Angeles and London before wrapping in Sydney on Dec 10, 2022. However, there is still no information on possible opening acts. But even without an opening act, the "Take My Hand World Tour" is set to be a fun-filled time.
