5 Seconds of Summer just dropped a re-imagined version of their most recent single, “Easier,” on all streaming platforms. The version was previously released via YouTube on Jul 5, 2019. It only took the band a month to bring “The Vault” to streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify.
The re-imagined version of “Easier” is more rock-based than the original, and fans are eating it up. This version was originally teased in the sneak peaks of the official music video, but was then opted out for the pop version. Ashton Irwin, drummer, tweeted in reference to the song’s different version.
When the single initially dropped back in May, fans were skeptical that it would sound good in a live rendition. Though the band did play it live during their radio stops and at a couple of festivals; it’s safe to say that we can expect to hear the Vault version played live from now on. — And it won’t end there, either!
“Easier” isn’t the only Vault version we’re going to be hearing from 5SOS. In fact, Irwin mentions that every single will have a re-imagined version. Could this mean we’re getting a Live From the Vault EP? We’re sure hoping so!
And while it’s technically not a new single, it will be enough to hold us over until 5SOS drop their next single on Aug 23. The single, currently titled “Track 1” on iTunes, will be released as part of the 13 Reasons Why season 3 soundtrack. Shortly after the release of the new single, 5SOS will be hitting the road for their co-headlining tour alongside The Chainsmokers. Can September 22 come any faster? We’re all waiting anxiously.
Until then, you can go listen to “Easier (Live From the Vault)” – which is out EVERYWHERE now – here.
