5 Seconds of Summer prepare for 5SOS3 with new bop ‘Youngblood’

5 Seconds of Summer prepares their pre-order of their third album

5 Seconds of Summer fans rejoiced today as the band official gave the world a release day and title for their upcoming third album, “Youngblood.” Like any pre-order these days, the band gave away one of the songs off the album when someone pre-ordered the album.

“Youngblood” is the first track off of the album of the same name. The song is an upbeat bop with a kick. It really begins to bang once it the chorus. The song follows the style that they have set with “Want You Back.” It’s a bit more pop mixed with some underlying rock beats. 5SOS new and more mature sound is still present and it’s still EVERYTHING.

The lyrics aren’t explicit like “Want You Back,” but still manage to pack a punch to your heart. The lyrics are about falling in love it being a one-sided relationship. One person was giving it everything while the other was just using them and playing them.

“Youngblood” is an amazing track and gives you an idea of what to expect on the album. 5SOS is owning and working this mature sound that they are doing. It’s definitely building hype up for the release of this album.

“Youngblood” is available for pre-order on digital retailers and will be released on June 22nd.

5 Seconds of Summer releases ‘Want You Back’ music video

5 Seconds of Summer makes everyone’s world spin

Australian rock group 5 Seconds of Summer released the video for their newest single “Want You Back” off of their untitled third album. “Want You Back” is all ready unlike any of their past songs and the video isn’t any different.

The video for “Want You Back” is visually stunning one that plays on the visuals and doesn’t tell a story like the majority of the 5SOS videos have done before. Each member of the band is in their own room. The rooms spin and defy gravity as they perform the song. It’s similar to what one would assume an acid trip would feel like.

5 seconds of Summer let the song tell the story instead of letting the video tell it. The video is more of a tool to help get the story across. It also lets the viewer figure out the hidden meaning of the rooms spinning and the setup of the rooms. The video also marks the first time we see the band perform the explicit version of the song. In past performances, they have performed the clean version of the song. 

The video for “Want You Back” is a welcome change in the style of 5 Seconds of Summers. It’s a more mature style and looks for the group. Their earlier style didn’t have anything wrong with it, you need to mature and grow to be successful. 5 Seconds of Summer is growing and maturing with their fans.

While there isn’t a release date for 5SOS3, 5 Seconds of Summer is on tour. Here’s video for your viewing pleasure:
