Australian pop-rockers 5 Seconds Of Summer have teamed up with iconic guitarist Tom Morello (Prophets Of Rage, Rage Against The Machine) for their new single, ‘Teeth’.
The unlikely collaboration is the second new song to come from 5 Seconds Of Summer since the release of last year’s full-length effort, ‘Youngblood’, and is also expected to feature on the soundtrack of the forthcoming third season of the Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why.
This is what vocalist/guitarist Luke Hemmings had to say about the track.
“‘Teeth’ came about after a month or two long blur of writing and pushing ourselves to go a step further than ‘Youngblood’. It was a tumultuous time in my life and the lyrics in the song definitely reflect that. It speaks lyrically about a trying time in my current relationship. Musically it’s another step forward from ‘Easier’ and really embraces industrial sounds and rhythms. Collaborating with Ryan Tedder was incredible as was Andrew Watt, Ali Tamposi & Lou Bell. ‘Teeth’ captures the soul of 5 Seconds Of Summer and I truly believe it is a unique song to us as a band and doesn’t sound like anything out at the moment. It’s my favourite song we’ve released ever, and I can’t wait for people to hear it.”

More details surrounding the band’s fourth full-length album and follow-up to 2018’s ‘Youngblood’ will be confirmed as it develops.
