Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Luke Hemmings has released his emotionally charged new single, “Place In Me,” from his forthcoming debut solo album When Facing The Things We Turn Away From, out next Friday, August 13 via Sony Music Listen to “Place In Me” here!
With “Place in Me,” Luke delivers another twist in his songwriting and artistry, this time showcasing a more tender side to his art. Soft yet vividly vulnerable, Luke’s voice soars like a zephyr while pleading for connection, strength and the embrace of another. The result is a message as intimate and immediately felt, just the listener and Luke in honest conversation.
“Place In Me” follows Luke’s previous releases of “Motion” and “Starting Line”, which will also appear on his forthcoming album, When Facing The Things We Turn Away From. “Motion” and “Starting Line,” have been met with a sea of support globally, receiving widespread acclaim and support from Billboard, NYLON, NME, Rollacoaster, triple j, and many more. NME declared, “The project’s first two singles [‘Starting Line’ and ‘Motion’] move Hemmings into an altogether more alternative space in the pop world, taking 5SOS’ penchant for pop hooks and fusing it with the sweeping orchestral feel of records like Lana Del Rey’s ‘Born To Die” and BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders stated, “Luke Hemmings is making certified bangers.”
Luke is best known as the lead singer of 5 Seconds Of Summer and has co-written some of the band’s biggest hits including “Youngblood,” “Teeth,” “Want You Back” and “Lie To Me.”
