"5 Years Time", also known as "5 Years Time (Sun Sun Sun)" was the first single (record) released by the English folk rock band Noah and the Whale. It was originally released in 2007, but it later was re-released on 4 August 2008, and became their first top-ten hit.
"5 Years Time" did not chart upon its first release. After poor initial sales, the group chose to re-release the single, and the record made it onto the charts in a number of countries. In the UK, it debuted at number 24, and went on to become Noah and the Whale's first top-ten single, peaking at number 7. In Ireland, "5 Years Time" debuted at number 47 and peaked at number 10.
The music video features the band performing in a pub, and dancing/playing in the park. During the video, Laura Marling, who provides backing vocals for the group, is seen playing a tin whistle and also giving the camera the two-fingers. The video was directed by James Copeman. The style of the video echoes the style of a Wes Anderson film, using the same typefont the director typically uses in his films/music videos.
The music video was added to YouTube on 13 June 2008, and has been viewed over eight million times.
