5 Seconds of Summer guitarist Michael Clifford has confirmed the group is working on new music in an interview with Loudwire at NAMM.

Clifford made an appearance with Gibson today (Jan. 24) to reveal his new Gibson signature guitar, the Melody Maker. The guitar, which Clifford said he plays at every show, will be available for fans to purchase in a jet black cherry finish. During the interview, Clifford also said that the band has already started working on a new record. Their previous release Youngblood came out in June 2018 and reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

"We actually just started working on our fourth record on Monday. So it's happening, it's in the works and it's happening right now," Clifford says. When asked for a timeline for a release date for new music, he said, "Who knows. We're looking at all possibilities, it could be this year or could be next."
