The 1975 have released their new song, ‘If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know)’, through Dirty Hit/Polydor Records. The new track is accompanied by an official live video, directed by Adam Powell, which you can check out below.
The 1975’s Matty Healy originally revealed that ‘If You’re Too Shy’ would be the band’s next single in February. The song, which NME recently described as “a horn driven uptempo bop” received its live debut in Nottingham on February 15 on the opening night of The 1975’s UK tour.
‘If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know)’ is the latest track from the band’s upcoming album, Notes On A Conditional Form. The album was originally set for release on 24 April, but last month The 1975 announced it was being pushed back to 22 May. In social posts, the band also revealed revised cover art, as well as the record’s 22-song tracklist.
Following 2018’s A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, Notes On A Conditional Form is the second of two albums from the British band’s third release cycle, ‘Music for Cars’. Over the past six months, the band has dropped a selection of sonically-diverse singles from Notes on a Conditional Form, beginning with the band’s eponymous first single from the album. Released in July of last year, ‘The 1975’ features a spoken-word recording from Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg, underscored by instrumentals.
On the heels of ‘The 1975’ came the punchy, punk-infused ‘People’, while ‘Frail State Of Mind’, which frontman Matty Healy described as a song about anxiety, followed in October. The two most recent singles off the album included the shoegaze-y ‘Me & You Together Song’, and the twangy, ‘The Birthday Party’. The band dropped their most recent track, ‘Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America’ earlier this month.
Notes On A Conditional Form is out on 22 May and can be pre-ordered here.
