5 Seconds of Summer Release New Single + Lyric Video ‘Amnesia’

by | PopCrush

5 Seconds of Summer have announced their next single ‘Amnesia’ and released its forlorn black-and-white lyric video.

The Australian band went for a slow-tempo song for the third single from their self-titled debut album. If we’re judging by Twitter trends, the boys also picked a huge fan favorite!

The video features Luke, Calum, Ashton and Michael looking seriously into the camera with the lyrics lit up across their faces. The camera pans across a messy bedroom, stopping to focus on a disco ball, an old radio, a record collection, photographs and other items that — assumedly — remind the singer of his ex.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the slow tune, ‘Amnesia’ tells the story of wanting to wake up without the memories of an old girlfriend because they’re too painful to live with. It’s romantic, in a completely heartbreaking kind of way.
