1975 New Single Not Living

The 1975 have released ‘It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)’, the third single taken from their forthcoming album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. The song made its debut as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World on BBC Radio 1 and you can hear the song below.

Earlier this week, the band shared a video for another new track, ‘Love It If We Made It’ which was accompanied by a striking video shot by director TK. The band simultaneously announced the release of a major North American tour for 2019, with their shows kicking off in Guadalajara, Mexico, 20 March and concluding on 3 June in Toronto, Canada.

‘It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)’ sees The 1975 tackling typically dystopian themes – including the idea that we might just be living in a simulated reality.

“Danny says we’re living in a simulation But he works in a petrol station (selling petrol)/He says it all began with his operation/And I know you think you’re sly but you need some imagination”, the lyric begins.

The new track is also anchored by a chorus featuring that eponymous phrase: “All I do is sit and think about you If I knew what you’d do/ Collapse my veins wearing beautiful shoes. It’s not living if it’s not with you.”

The 1975’s new album, A Brief Enquiry Into Online Relationships, is due for release on 30 November and includes 15 tracks. Describing the new record, The 1975 singer Matty Healy previously told the NME: “Our first three albums are the story of a person; it’s always kind of been my story.

“It spanned adolescence to maturity, success and trying to mediate the two, and the third one is where we are now. I haven’t really decided the statement of where we are now yet. It’s sort of difficult to understand the present.”
