The 1975 are definitely releasing a new EP, but not until next year

The 1975’s Matty Healy recently revealed the band have a new EP on the way.

“Okay – one more EP,” the frontman Tweeted on Sunday (5th November), before going on to reference a much-used lyric that’s pretty much their catchphrase at this point: “What A Shame – The EP”.

Sadly it’s not going to come out this year, however – the band’s manager Jamie Oborne reveals on Twitter: “So there is not going to be @the1975 EP in 2017. EP will be 2018.”

He goes on to crypitally tease “BUT you will get something that I personally love”, and give an update on their next album, ‘Music For Cars’: “MFC is already sounding amazing. It will be worth the wait.”

Speaking to Dork at the end of 2016 after another batch of teaser Tweets and new material rumours, Matty spoke a little about the band’s next lot of music.

“There will be something [out in 2017] but that was me slightly pissed and being honest with myself about how impatient I am,” he explained. “There’s not going to be another album next year because we all know how seriously I take our albums, but I think we’ll put out a piece of music.

“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, and it’ll be really sad but it’ll change the world ‘cause it’ll be fucking sick. There’s a quote for you.”
