    First single "People":

    The 1975 describe 2019 album 'Notes on a Conditional Form' as a "nighttime record", first single to drop in February - NME

    “When I was making the last record that wasn’t trying to make a particular thing. Of course, at times, I wanted to make [My Bloody Valentine’s]’ Loveless’ of course, or at times I wanted to make ‘OK Computer’ – there were all these types of things. [Coltrane’s] ‘Blue Train’. On this record you can hear that at times I want to make my ‘Nebraska’ [Bruce Springsteen’s sparsest album] or I want to make my ‘Immunity’ by John Hopkins. I’d like it to be a moment-in-time record like a ‘Nebraska’.”

    Lmao ABIIOR is a phenomenal record and Notes will probably be more of that quality.

    This band is incredible.

    I honestly don’t even think we’ve seen the best from them yet

    Would love for the end of "I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes)" to bleed into the intro of this next album.

    I guess I'll be the first to say that I hope this record has a touch more upbeat and...dare I say...poppier songs. I'm loving ABI so far, but I'll always love the pop side of The 1975 MORE. Yes, I'm talking about the It's Not Livings, the TOOTIMES, the Sounds, and the This Must Be My Dreams of their catalogue. I just want a little bit more. I feel like most of my favorite records in 2018 have all been on the slower side, so hopefully 2019 brings some more uptempo numbers.

    No expectations on sound for this one for me. I’m interested to see what the themes will be on this one, to see how it differentiates itself from ABI
