Luke Hemmings began writing what would become the song “Starting Line” after hearing the synth riff his producer, Sammy Witte, had come up with. When Hemmings got to the piano, the lyrics just started to flow: “In and out of focus, moments that I keep…”

“I’ll just sit down [at] an instrument and something, it’ll just come out,” Hemmings tells MTV News. “And then I’ll sort of have to catch up to it and figure out, well, what did that mean? And why did those words come out?” It was a fitting process for creating his solo album, When Facing the Things We Turn Away From, arriving August 13, a project that has allowed Hemmings to reflect as he catches up to a whirlwind career.

At 25, Hemmings’s life in the music realm has already lasted a decade. He has played guitar and sung in 5 Seconds of Summer since he was 15, and these last 10 years have been non-stop – Hemmings didn’t have a breather or time to process it until the pandemic started. 5SOS put out their fourth album, CALM, on March 27, 2020, making them among the first groups to have to promote an album solely digitally, trading playing shows for Instagram Lives and YouTube videos in order to stay connected to fans, and with each other. It also meant no touring, and staying at home.
