Luke Hemmings Takes a Reflective Journey with “Close My Eyes” Ahead of Solo EP Release

Multi-platinum sensation Luke Hemmings sets the stage for a poignant introspection with his latest single “Close My Eyes,” a compelling precursor to his upcoming solo EP, “boy,” scheduled for release on April 26, 2024. Produced in collaboration with longtime partner Sammy Witte, known for his work with acclaimed artists like Maggie Rogers and Harry Styles, this synth-led track follows the success of Hemmings’ melancholic debut single, “Shakes.”

In a recent statement, Hemmings shared his inspiration behind “Close My Eyes,” describing it as a reflection on the looming transition into his late twenties and the inevitable departure from youth. The track delves into themes of fear, anxiety, and the bittersweet process of bidding farewell to the past while embracing the journey towards self-realization.

The release of “Close My Eyes” comes hot on the heels of Hemmings‘ sold-out solo headline tour, “Nostalgia for a Time That Never Existed.” This 20-city world tour, spanning Europe and North America, promises to be a transformative experience for fans as Hemmings brings his introspective melodies to life on stage.

As the lead vocalist of 5 Seconds of Summer, Hemmings has already left an indelible mark on the music industry, but his solo endeavors showcase a new dimension of artistic depth and vulnerability. With “boy,” Hemmings continues to explore themes of maturity and humanity, drawing inspiration from an eclectic mix of musical influences ranging from LCD Soundsystem to Cocteau Twins.

As Hemmings embarks on this introspective musical odyssey, “Close My Eyes” serves as a testament to his growth as an artist and his unwavering commitment to authentic expression.
