5 Seconds of Summer have dropped the acoustic version of their latest single “Lie to Me” and simultaneously gave fans a live video to accompany the tender track.
In the two-minute-long video, the Australian pop-rock band perform their midtempo tune on what appears to be the edge of a cliff during a stunning sunset, with a hot-pink hue cascading over each band member as they play their respective instruments.
“Now I wish we never met/ ‘Cause you’re too hard to forget/ While I’m cleaning up your mess, I know he’s taking off your dress/ I know that you don’t, but if I ask you if you love me/ I hope you lie, lie, lie, lie, lie to me,” the quintet harmonizes the angsty song off of their 2018 album Youngblood.
The minimalist video of Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin was filmed in Los Angeles’ Irwindale Speedway and was directed by Brandon Vaughn. They also recently unveiled another version of the song that features Julia Michaels.
