5SOS on 'Sounds Good Feels Good': 'We wrote a lot about loneliness'
Aussie pop-punk band 5 Seconds Of Summer will release their new album 'Sounds Good Feels Good' this fall and sat down for an interview with Variety to talk about the highly anticipated full-length offering.
Guitarist Michael Clifford revealed that one of the themes dealt with on their new record is loneliness: "We explore loads of different topics. It varies between songs. There are still songs about love and stuff that we wrote about on the last album, but it really goes into loneliness."
Frontman Luke Hemmings added: " I think on the first album, we were so young. We had stuff to write about then and I love all the songs that we wrote. With the second album, though, we’ve toured the world for a few years and we’ve done some stuff. We’re older now and we’ve been through more. On the second album I think that really comes across. It’s much more personal."
Drummer Ashton Irwin then confessed that he feels very 'in tune' with 'Sounds Good Feels Good' and can't wait for fans to experience the same connection: "All we know is that we really connected to this next album lyrically — more emotionally than we did with the first one. And it really makes us react as people, so hopefully that transfers to the fans."
