5 Seconds of Summer have released the music video for “Older,” directed by Frank and Ivanna Borin (ZAYN, Tyga, Lil Nax X). The soft, tender love ballad features vocals from lead singer Luke Hemmings’ fiancée, Sierra Deaton. Watch it now below.
“If you knew the world was ending tomorrow, who would you want to spend it with? Would you be with a lover? Your children? Your best friends? Would you want to be alone?” asks 5 Seconds of Summer. “The video for ‘Older’ poses this question and portrays humans of all walks of life on their last day on earth. The song is about not wanting to get older because that means you’re one day closer to either your own eventual demise or that of your loved ones. Usually, in life, the end comes without warning, but we wanted the video to capture what could happen if we knew exactly when the end was coming. We made the video with our long-time friends and collaborators, the brilliant Frank and Ivanna Borin… we hope you enjoy it.”
The track is taken from the band’s critically acclaimed fifth studio album, 5SOS5, which has garnered global success debuting #1 AUS, #1 UK, #1 NL, #2 US, #3 CAN, #3 NZ, #5 DE. The 19-track album showcases the band’s multi-faceted artistry and growth over their 10-year career, highlighting their dynamic pop-punk sound paired with reflective and intimate lyrics, with the majority of the new album written by the band and Michael Clifford (vocals/guitar) leading on production.
