The 1975 Confirm Next Album, Music Coming July

It’s been a little over two years since the 1975 release Notes on a conditional form, their latest album. This disc was released at the start of the pandemic, which forced the band to postpone the tour they had planned. That tour was supposed to take place last year, but the band later canceled that tour, saying they wanted to “until we’re sure we can play shows in a way that’s safe for our fans and our crew”. In that same announcement, 1975 claimed they were “in the process of making a new album.” It looks like we’ll be hearing at least part of this new album in just over a month.

As Twitter users have noted, posters for the 1975s have started popping up in London’s Shoreditch area. These posters have a cryptic image and a date: July 7th. There are also other activity indicators. As this Reddit thread points out, 1975 have changed their logo on Spotify and Facebook. (Twitter too.) In April, the DORK website, keeping a close eye on Instagram Stories, reported that the band were likely filming a video in Kent. Also in April, 1975s manager Jamie Oborne tweeted: “The new album is the most real”.

Additionally, someone else on Reddit posted that Lorde recently left a comment on 1975 frontman Matty Healy’s Instagram: “My txts aren’t going through.” It has since been deleted. This could be a tease of some sort of collaboration, or it could just mean that Lorde and Healy wanted to compare notes on onion rings or whatever.

Since Notes on a conditional formthe 1975s collaborated with No Rome and Charli XCX on the single “Spinning”, and Matty Healy and George Daniel produced beabadoobee’s Our extended game PE. Last October, Matty Healy played a surprise acoustic solo set in Los Angeles, opening for Phoebe Bridgers, the artist who was to open the canceled 1975 tour in 2020. At that show, Healy debuted two new songs.
