The 1975 have confirmed the release date of their new album, ‘Being Funny in a Foreign Language’.
The follow-up to 2020’s ‘Notes on a Conditional Form’ will be released on Friday 14th October, as confirmed by the band’s official mailing list.
The tracklisting for ‘Being Funny in a Foreign Language’ will read:
Looking For Somebody (To Love)
Part of the Band
I’m In Love With You
All I Need To Hear
When We Are Together
The news comes as we await the release of the first track from the album, ‘Part of the Band’, which is set to debut as BBC Radio 1’s Hottest Record tomorrow night (Thursday 7th July) at 6pm BST. A video will follow at 7pm BST – presumably, the one recently filmed on a Kent nudist beach.
And honestly – Dear Reader – you do not want to miss it. That’s all we’re saying. We’re probably not even allowed to say that. Pretend you didn’t read it.
To celebrate the return of The 1975, we’re throwing a special one-off club night, Love It If We Played It.
Held at The Book Club on Shoreditch’s Leonard Street, we’ll kick off just a short while after ‘Part of the Band’ debuts tomorrow for a night filled with music from and associated with the band as a celebration of one of the most inventive and enigmatic acts on Planet Pop.
Tickets will set you back £5 plus fees in advance, with all profits going to The Outside Project – an LBTIQ+ organisation based in London whose work centres around members of the LGBTIQ+ community who feel endangered, who are homeless/‘hidden’ homeless and feel that they are on the outside of services due to historical and present prejudice in society and in their homes.
