5 Seconds of Summer have released two Spotify Singles today (Aug. 1): a toned-down version of their song "Lie to Me," and a rendition of Post Malone's hit "Stay."

The group's live recording of the Youngblood single highlights the track's vocal melodies and the quartet's ability to harmonize.

As for why they chose to cover the Post Malone track, drummer Ashton Irwin explained that they consider it to be "beautifully written."

"In this day and age, a beautifully written song that is reminiscent of bands like the Beatles on 2018’s most popular album is an amazing thing," Irwin tweeted. "So we covered @PostMalone’s “Stay.”
