5 Seconds of Summer Releases Video for “Want You Back” & It’s Everything I Dreamed It Would Be

After nearly two years of silence, 5 Seconds of Summer has finally released a new single, “Want You Back,” and a killer video to go along with it.

“Want You Back” has already gained over 55 million streams worldwide, a big accomplishment for a group that started out singing YouTube covers only seven years ago. The Australian pop/rock band has even been named “biggest new rock act in the world” by Rolling Stone and their success only continues to grow. They’ve yet to disappoint after their first two hit albums entered the Billboard 200 at #1, and this video is no exception.

The surreal video, featuring the four band members hanging from the ceiling and climbing on the walls of a spinning room, is a far departure from their fun and hilarious videos of years past (Anyone else see “Hey Everybody!”?). But that doesn’t mean that it’s any less exciting.

If the song itself wasn’t worth the two year wait, this video sure is. It’s everything I could have ever hoped for and more.

The band is kicking off their 5SOS3 U.S. tour on April 8th in Boston, and trust me, you won’t want to miss a chance to see this song live.
