The 1975 have dropped a massive new single, ‘Happiness’, and announced their first post-pandemic tour dates.

The second track to arrive from new album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’, ‘Happiness’ is equal parts classic The 1975 megabop and the more textured, mature sound that dominated their two previous albums, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ and ‘Notes on a Conditional Form’. Premiered on Zane Lowe’s Apple 1 show earlier today, you can check out our first impressions here.
