"Lie to Me" is fourth single from 5 Second of Summer's latest album, Youngblood. The pop-rock group previously released the hits "Want You Back," the title track and "Valentine" from that record. "Lie" was originally a solo song by 5SoS, but now Michaels brings a feminine perspective to it. Glowing guitar and '80s-inspired synths back member Luke Hemmings and Julia trading verses about missing an old flame that's moved on. "Now I wish we never met because you're too hard to forget," they sing together. With Michaels in the mix, the lush ballad is more beautifully heartbreaking as a duet.
Last week 5 Seconds of Summer released the music video for the solo version of "Lie to Me." The guys set a car filled with memories on fire. The Youngblood album is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Michaels will release her new EP Inner Monologue Part I on Jan. 25.
