5 Seconds of Summer - Me Myself and I

Luke: “’Me, Myself, & I’ is a really exciting song for us to have on the record that we’ve spent the last two years making. We’re all big fans of Jon Bellion and when he sent us the idea, we instantly connected with it. So much of what we had been writing lyrically was extremely introspective and this song fit like a puzzle piece with the rest of the album. We then ended up finishing it with Jon, Jason, Pete and Mick.”
Five Seconds of Summer, often shortened to 5SOS, are an Australian pop rock band from Sydney, New South Wales, formed in 2011. The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012. They rose to international fame while touring with One Direction on their Take Me Home Tour. They have since released four studio albums and headlined three world tours.
The boys have released their single before they drop their new album ‘5sos5’ in September 2022. They have teased their tracklist for the new album which has a grand total of 19 songs on this album.
Me, Myself and I is an airy song with the guitar sounds featured quite heavily. This song may be emotional and about heart-break, but it is very catchy. It is a break-up anthem that will get you singing out loud and release all of the emotions that you have. The riffs and the raspiness of these lyrics tell a story all on its own, but it also reflects loneliness and guilt when going through the break-up period. I love the chorus as it is very catchy and just brings out an even more emotional side to the boys. This song has been added to my playlist as I love it so much!
