Aussie singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ashton Irwin has been quite busy during COVID, writing and recording an LP he’ll release next month.

Arriving October 23 via EMI Music Australia, Superbloom is the debut solo album from the 5 Seconds Of Summer drummer and features “deeply evocative and personal” new single Skinny Skinny, which dropped today.

The album’s lead track stems from a conversation that Irwin has with his 15-year-old brother regarding body image.

“He’s already caught up in his own mental image of what his body should look like,” he said. 

“I thought that was such a crippling trap for a young man to try and walk through. I needed to write a song that captured the pain of body dysmorphia. I have been through stages in my life where I’ve been sickened by that state of mind.”
