"Youngblood" comes from 5 Seconds of Summer's third and latest album by the same name. Youngblood the album released June 15 to positive reception.
Says band member Ashton Irwin in an interview with Billboard, "Our purpose as a band is very different than other bands. We’re not necessarily a one-genre band. I don’t think anybody really is anymore, but that goes back to who our influences are. When I think about Gorillaz and stuff like that, I noticed one common thing: genre-bending. They do whatever they want because it feels good. The Beatles were like that, too. They have songs in so many different realms. I think our purpose as a band is to make whatever comes whatever we’re influenced by."
