The 1975 were joined by Phoebe Bridgers on stage last night (November 28th), as she performed a solo cover of their 2012 song, ‘Milk’.

The Californian indie-folk artist has previously collaborated with the chart-topping British group on 2020’s ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ cut, ‘Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America’, as well as featuring in the recent music video for ‘I’m In Love With You’.

The 1975 are current in the midst of their North American headline tour, which kicked off earlier this month, with Phoebe Bridger’s featuring in their Los Angeles concert at Inglewood’s Kia Forum.

Bridgers entered the elaborate stage by knocking on a door, which was answered by guitarist Adam Hann. She then proceeded to pick up an acoustic guitar in order to perform the Manchester quartet’s 2012 cut, ‘Milk’.

The track was originally included as a hidden track on the band’s second EP, ‘Sex’. The title serves as a euphemism for cocaine, which the song’s protagonist acquires an addiction to while attempting to mend a broken heart.

The 1975 will tour North America for the remainder of 2022, returning to the UK for their hometown headline shows in January 2023 with recently-announced support act Bonnie Kemplay – tickets are available here. They have also been confirmed as headliners for Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival next July.
