At long last, Luke Hemmings has dropped his debut album and we could not be more thrilled!
After blessing us with ‘Starting Line,’ ‘Motion,’ and ‘Place In Me‘ as teasers, the full album is dropping around the world as we speak! Speaking about his debut album When Facing The Things We Turn Away From and the personal songs that he wrote for the album, Luke said to Rollacoaster: “It’s hard because it’s obviously a very cathartic thing. I think at the start of writing it was less intense topics, and then once I broke the seal I was more comfortable writing about harder things, like vices, and going through family history. It was honestly like going back into the headspace of being a 16-17-year-old kid in a very strange, but amazing, situation. Trying to put myself back in that headspace was the strangest one but honestly, it helped me figure it out.”
Luke is the second member of 5SOS to take on a solo project, and to celebrate this milestone in his career he is going to be hosting a livestream event this Saturday. Sharing the news on Twitter, Luke tweeted: “to celebrate the release of WFTTWTAF, I’ll be playing a few songs live and stripped for you this Saturday at 3pm PT from the studio where most of it was recorded. I’ll also be chatting about the album and answering some of your questions. Tickets are $5 with all proceeds benefitting My Friends Place – hope to see you there.”
