We’ve spent the last few weeks expecting the first taster of whatever it is we’re getting from Matty, George, Ross and Adam to arrive on 1st June. There’s a countdown on their website heading to midnight on that date – one repeated so many times now that we’re basically judging all other music happenings on a before-or-after new the 1975 scale.
But, it looks like that’s not strictly right. BBC Radio 1 have started running ads teasing the band’s appearance on Annie Mac’s show this Thursday night, 31st May, between 7 and 9pm. And it says they’ll have news.
And – perhaps – a Hottest Record in the World, a few hours before New Music Friday arrives? You’d not want to bet against it popping up in that 7:30pm slot.
UPDATE! And we’ve got confirmation – the band will be dropping a new single as Hottest Record this Thursday!
And it’s called ‘Give Yourself A Try’
Check out the ad below (via @The1975_Tour on Twitter – seriously, go follow – Ed), and move up your hype schedule by approximately four and a half hours.
