NEW MUSIC: LUKE HEMMINGS | STARTING LINE + ANNOUNCES SOLO ALBUM

5 Seconds of Summer lead vocalist Luke Hemmings is the latest band member to embark on a solo career, announcing his debut album "When Facing The Things We Turn Away From." The album comprises 12-track and is his first solo album, following his band-mate Ashton Irwin's solo project “Superbloom,” released in October 2020. Alongside the announcement is the premiere of the lead single called “Starting Line,” written by Luke Hemmings and Sammy Witte, who also produced it. “Starting Line” discusses “missing various memories," Hemmings explains in a statement. "You’re reflecting on your youth and all of the madness and craziness. It’s like you forget so many pieces of your life—not from vices or anything—but the sheer volume. I had to figure out how to fill a lot of gaps for myself in a positive way. It’s the human condition to change everything up after so long." The record will arrive on August 13 through Sony. The singer described the album as “a project that grew out of a year of enforced stillness.” l for the journey this album has taken me on, and I’m so thankful to have had this creative outlet during my time at home” Hemmings wrote on social media.
