Matty continues to hint that The 1975 are making ‘Music For Cars – The Album’

We've still got months to wait but clues are fun, right?
Back in February, Matty Healy tweeted “Music For Cars – The Album” which understandably sent a ripple of excitement and trepidation across The Internet.

Now, we don’t believe everything we read on The Internet but a few weeks later, he was at it again.

And then last night was three times the charm.

I like it when you sleep is coming to an end,” read the first tweet before quickly following it up with a swift “Music For Cars“.

He didn’t stop there though. After discussing his liberal views, he explained “NOW I will retreat from the world to make Music For Cars. Please keep informing me. I learn so much from our fans and I value you so much x. Just music from now on. Informed by you. The young.”

The 1975 will end their ‘I Like It When You Sleep‘ chapter with a headline performance at Latitude Festival on July 14th. ‘Music For Cars‘ is the third EP from the band and was released in 2013 featuring the mega-smash ‘Chocolate‘ alongside the more left-field ‘Hearts.Cars.Bending‘ and ‘Me‘.

Speaking about the new album last year Matty explained, “We’ve met so many artists, who we’re not necessarily going to be working with, but it’s been a very inspiring time for us. I just know we’ll definitely put out a single next year, or an EP which will lead up to the album, which I reckon will come out early summer 2018. It’ll be really sad but it’ll change the world ‘cause it’ll be fucking sick.You take what’s amazing about the previous record and you distill it and you refine it and extend it and you build on it, that’s always our idea.

“I talk a million miles a minute. I’ll be writing one song and I’ll think I know what the whole record is going to sound like, and it completely changes.

“It’s already quite a weird record. I’ve written a lot of it. I know that it’s going to be more all over the place than the last record in regards to it being recorded in so many different places. It’s going to be… I don’t know. It is interesting to think I don’t know. I’ve got an idea of what I want to do visually and then it becomes a process of procrastination. Figuring out exactly what I want to do.”
