5 Seconds of Summer are only months away from releasing their sophomore album, Sounds Good Feels Good. They are keeping anticipation high by sharing a new song called “Jet Black Heart.”
It’s the third brand new track we’ve heard from the group, after “She’s Kinda Hot” and the uptempo “Fly Away.” Unlike these, “Jet Black Heart” stays true to its title with solemn break-up theme.
“‘Cause I’ve got a jet black heart / And there’s a hurricane underneath it, trying to keep us apart,” sing the boys on the anthemic chorus, lyrics straight out of the early ’00s emo playbook.
They drive the point home in the next stanza, which promises a chance to get back together again: ”I write with a poison pen / But these chemicals moving between us are the reasons to start again.”
