The 1975 have released a new track, also titled ‘The 1975’, which is the first taster from their forthcoming fourth studio album, Notes On A Conditional Form. The much-anticipated follow-up to last year’s A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, the new album is the second of two albums from their third release cycle, “Music for Cars”. You can check out ‘The 1975’ below.
‘The 1975’ is a spoken word call to arms from Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg with an instrumental underneath, though the track is not reputedly indicative of how the rest of Notes On A Conditional Form is expected to sound.
Frontman Matty Healy recently told NME: “I’ve realised it’s never going to be a continuation or an association with A Brief Inquiry. It’s a completely different record. Six months now is the same as what three years was before. Think about the amount of s_t that happens in six months’ time. [Notes On A Conditional Form] will be a different thing and a different time.”
Elsewhere in 1975 news, the fast-rising UK stars also recently announced that they will be headlining the Saturday night of Pitchfork Music Festival Paris 2019. They join Skepta and Chromatics as festival headliners. The festival takes place from 31 October to 2 November at La Grande Halle de la Villette in the 19th arrondissement, the home of Pitchfork Paris since 2011. Other acts performing include Belle and Sebastian, Charli XCX, Jamila Woods, Primal Scream, Chai, Sheer Mag, and a 2manydjs DJ set. Three-day and one-day passes are on sale now at the Pitchfork Paris official website.
Pitchfork Music Festival Paris 2019 is set to be the festival’s biggest year yet, featuring over 50 acts and housing Avant-Garde’s up-and-coming acts within the walls of Grande Halle for the first time. YARD, the French reference point for urban culture, is co-presenting Thursday, which is dedicated to the new rap scene.
