Apparently, The 1975 are releasing one song a month in the lead up to ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’, which means we’re due a new one, right?
Manager Jamie Oborne confirmed the plan in an interview with industry magazine Music Week, which also confirms the band will make a live return in January.
Given the first track from the record, ‘Give Yourself A Try’, arrived right at the end of May / start of June, that means that – at some point this month – we’ll have another new cut from the band’s forthcoming record. Restart that hype train!
The first of a two records under the ‘Music For Cars’ banner, ‘A Brief Inquiry…’ is set to arrive later this year, with second part ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ due in Spring 2019.
“We’re doing things a little bit differently in this campaign,” Oborne told Music Week. “Very early on, Matthew noted that the promotional window on music is shorter than ever, and the time that people consume it is infinite.
“He felt very strongly that, if we have a tour cycle that’s going to last 18 months to two years, we have to release two records in the time that we would have previously have released one.”
