Australia’s Luke Hemmings released his new single “Shakes” on March 6th via Arista. It’s the lead single from his upcoming EP, boy, set to drop April 26th. It’s the second solo release for the former 5 Seconds Of Summer lead singer/guitarist. The EP is a result of continued introspection into maturity and humanity paired with the influence of LCD Soundsystem, My Bloody Valentine, The Verve, and Cocteau Twins culminating in a body of work highlighting both Luke’s personal evolution and his craft as a songwriter. About the new single, Hemmings said, “’Shakes’ was written on a dreary NYC evening in between long periods of being on the road. This made it come naturally to write from a melancholy place and feeling of yearning to be back home and feeling lonely and emotionally depleted.  There is a longing for love and self-acceptance in the lyrics and I hope it to be a song and feeling that anyone listening can find themselves in and attach their own story.”
