5 Seconds of Summer have released their new single, “Want You Back.” It’s the Aussie group’s first new song in nearly two years. They also announced a 26-date tour, which kicks off next month.

The pop-flavored track reflects on a lost love and captures the yearning that often follows a breakup. “No matter where I go, I’m always gonna want you back, ” Luke Hemmings sings on the chorus. “No matter how long you’re gone, I’m always gonna want you back/ I know you know I will never get over you.”

The group has spent the past year in Los Angeles writing and recording the follow-up to its 2015 sophomore album, Sounds Good Feels Good. The as-yet untitled LP is slated to be released later this year via Capitol.

In the meantime, 5 Seconds of Summer will embark on a 26-date tour, which begins on March 20th in Stockholm, Sweden at Debaser Strand and wraps on June 6th at Cine Joia in Sao Paolo, Brazil. In between their overseas dates, they will perform at 13 venues across the U.S.
