Ashton Irwin has confirmed details of his debut solo album.

‘Superbloom’ is scheduled to drop on October 23 via Ingrooves, and will feature the newly shared lead single Skinny Skinny, a reflection on body dysmorphia and anxiety that locks into a melancholic groove comprised of acoustic guitar sequences and a gently affecting vocal lead.

The news arrives with an emotive video for the folk-pop track, which sees Irwin perform an intricate, contemporary dance routine. Check it out below, alongside the new LP's tracklist and artwork. 

“The over-arching narrative is support system, healing, recovery, strength and focus on true self. I felt like I had a lot to write about,” the 5 Seconds Of Summer drummer explained. In a statement, he continued:

“I had to reach a certain level of lyrical maturity in order to write about something I actually cared about. I think it’s always important as an artist to have a mission statement, like, ‘why do you make music? Why do you write the lyrics you write?’.

“It was really freeing and inspiring to me. The journey I was intending was growth, self-understanding, self-reliance when it comes to song-writing and production. The songs I’ve written for this record couldn’t be sung by anyone else but me.”

'Superbloom' tracklist:

  1. Scar
  2. Have U Found What Ur Looking For
  3. Skinny Skinny 
  4. Greyhound
  5. Matter Of Time
  6. Sunshine
  7. The Sweetness 
  8. I'm To Blame
  9. Drive
  10. Perfect Lie 

‘C A L M’, the last full-length effort from 5 Seconds Of Summer, dropped in March and reached #1 on the Official UK Albums Chart. The alt-rockers are set to support the record with a rescheduled world tour throughout 2021, which will hit the UK, Europe, North America and Australia. Remaining tickets are on sale now.
