The Face magazine will be hosting a virtual tribute concert celebrating The 1975’s catalogue this evening, 7 May. The event kicks off on The Face’s Instagram page at 4pm BST/11am EDT/8am PDT, with contributing artists include Phoebe Bridgers, Cave Town and Gracie Abrams.

Pale Waves’ Heather Baron-Gracie will kick off the tribute livestream at 4pm BST by performing ‘Sex’. Cave Town will play ‘Medicine’ at 5pm, Beabadoobee will cover ‘Milk’ at 6pm, Gracie Abrams will perform ‘Somebody Else’ at 7pm, Clairo will play ‘Robbers’ at 8, , while Phoebe Bridgers will cover ‘Girls’ and Rina Sawayama will wrap up the tribute concert at 10pm BST with her version of ‘Love It If We Made It’.

As uDiscover Music previously reported, The Face are also hosting The 1975 frontman Matty Healy’s ‘In Conversation’ podcast series, which will see him speak to some of his heroes including Brian Eno, Stevie Nicks, Kim Gordon, Conor Oberst, Steve Reich, Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie, Mike Kinsella of American Football and others.

Healy tweeted out a snippet of his conversation with Brian Eno, where the British music pioneer discusses his first ambient record, Music For Airports. “When that came out, there was a review in an American magazine where the guy said — in very critical terms, he gave it a very poor one-star or something — he said, ‘This music has no beat, no words, no melodies and no chord changes.’ And I thought, ‘Ah, that was a success, then.’”

The 1975 are releasing their new album, Notes On A Conditional Form on 22 May via Dirty Hit/Polydor Records. So far they’ve released several tasters – ‘If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know)’, ‘Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America’ featuring Phoebe Bridgers, ‘The Birthday Party’, ‘Me & You Together Song’, ‘The 1975’, ‘People’, and ‘Frail State of Mind’.

Listen to the Best of The 1975 on Apple Music and Spotify.
