Two surprise releases in two weeks? It looks like the guys of 5 Seconds of Summer are trying to get on their fans’ good side, though it doesn’t really take much. On Friday (Feb. 1), the Australian band released the acoustic version of their latest single, “Lie to Me.”
The over three-minute clip for the acoustic song features the four-piece performing the song outdoors while the sun sets beautifully behind them. It’s definitely a sight to see (and we’re not just talking about the sunset). Watch the video for the acoustic version of “Lie to Me” above.
“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 week, the band posted images on social media indicating that they had returned to the recording studio. As per their posts, it looks like they’re already working on the follow-up to Youngblood.
“Recording Luke vocals the other day with Linus & the band,” wrote drummer Ashton Irwin on Twitter.
“I love making music with these boys. Lots of special new partnerships on this new record we are making.”
