The song “Bad Omens” from 5 Seconds of Summer’s recently released fifth studio album, 5SOS5, has been made available. The 19-track album, the most of which was written by the band with Michael Clifford handling production, highlights the band’s multifaceted artistry and progress over the course of their ten-year career. It emphasizes their dynamic pop-punk style with contemplative and intimate lyrics.
The band’s breakout track “Complete Mess,” an anthem that swept the airways as the No. 2 most added at Top 40 Radio with 100+ stations in the first week, is also featured on 5SOS5.
In honor of the album’s release, 5 Seconds of Summer performed The Feeling of Falling Upwards in an exclusive global webcast yesterday night (Thursday, Sept. 21) from London’s illustrious Royal Albert Hall. With an orchestra and choir in support, the band delivered a set of updated renditions of songs from their 11-year discography as well as brand-new songs from the forthcoming album.
The group’s first independently released album under BMG is 5SOS5. There are 19 tracks on the album’s deluxe CD and digital versions, and there are also cassette and vinyl versions available.
