After having fans wait months for their latest music video, 5 Seconds of Summer have come through. On Friday (Jan. 18), the Australian band released the music video for their latest single, “Lie to Me.” The clip for the song finds the four-piece mulling over heartbreak while seated in an abandoned race track at night.
The three-minute video finds frontman Luke Hemmings as the sole member of the band seated in a beat-up race car in the middle of the track, while the rest of the guys (guitarist Michael Clifford, bassist Calum Hood, and drummer Ashton Irwin) are seated on the bleachers surrounding the track. As previously teased in the lyric video for the song, the video ends with a race car —the number 96 painted on it— exploding.

“Lie to Me” joins previously released singles “Want You Back,” “Youngblood,” and “Valentine” on the quartet’s recently released record, Youngblood. The album, the band’s third studio effort, was released in June of 2018. The record peaked at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart earning them their third number one album right behind 2014’s self-titled and 2015’s Sounds Good Feels Good.
Earlier this month, the group unleashed an exclusive redone version of “Lie to Me.” The re-recorded version of the song included guest vocals by singer-songwriter Julia Michaels. That version of “Lie to Me” can be found here.
