    they say this is medicine Prestigious

    then again, maybe they released so many singles before a brief inquiry so they only have to do one or two post-release singles and can start promoting this?
  2. if it were any other band i would bet that it is not coming next year but this is the 1975

    He's one of the only mainstream musicians that can smartly talk about their own music.

    Turns out Matty’s dad was supposed to read the Robot lyrics for the interlude

    The line about penis would have been incredible in a Geordie accent.

    Matty heard his dad reciting a story about a guy called snowflakesmasher86 watching porn and he was like “nahhh let’s just get a robot to do this”

    Can't wait to see how they top A Brief Inquiry

    I literally can't believe I just typed that but they've gotten better with each album so we'll see!
  12. be great if this dropped June 1st after they blacked out all their socials for a bit, as usual
  13. Wow I can’t wait for this to come out on Friday, June 1st, 2029.

    Don't they also have a Drive Like I Do album planned after they're done with these?
  16. I don't know what happened with that. It kinda sounded like it got scratched when they decided to just keep doing The 1975? I dunno.

  17. Seems to me like the DLID album might have turned into Notes

    I want this album to come out 7/5/19 (or more preferably 5/7/19, but I’m trying to be reasonable here)

  19. I kinda want this to come out after the USA tour because I want to experience this album and a plethora of older songs live before Notes takes up a good chunk of the set.
  20. Here for it, of course

    They said the first single from NOACF would be out in February. There's not really any other single opportunities on ABI outside of the closer, in my opinion.
  22. A fan video for “America” would be awsome. (But that’s not going to radio.)

    My real question is will the album really end up being called Notes On A Conditional Form? I could see it changing

    First new info about specific songs! “Frail State of Mind” and “The Birthday Party”

    There’s a song on it called “Frail State of Mind”, which is a UK garage, sad, Burial kind of thing about social anxiety, you know, going out. I’m better at it happening, (at) me and you sitting down and having a conversation, than thinking about going to do the conversation. The social event’s normally always fine, but the build up to it, I hate it.

    There’s a song called “The Birthday Party”, that’s just about the interesting social minutiae of house parties. I was gonna do a song that was like, ‘What it was like to be at a house party at 20, 25, and 29’. But then I realised I don’t need to do it, I just need to do what it’s like now, because my career has been what it’s been like to be at a house party at 20, 25, and 29. I think (the album will) be similar in the way that Brief Inquiry can be quite deconstructed – there’s big, bombastic elements to it, but it’s a very stripped, pure version of The 1975. The older we get, the more Scandi we get with it, pop-wise. There’s still a lot of anxiety on the record, but there’s some big bits. Oh God, I don’t know, I’m fucking stressed about it.

    My only fear is that because I’ve put this umbrella over both albums, they’ll be perceived as intrinsically connected. The only connection is that we live in a culture where we’ll watch the best thing we’ve ever seen on Netflix, and be like, “That’s the best thing I’ve ever seen”, and then just wanna watch something immediately next. The only reason there’s two albums is because my attention span, like everyone else’s, is shortened. It’s definitely going to have a relationship with (the previous album). But that was never my intention; I’m just making records. I’ve gotta always want to be making my masterpiece. Otherwise, what’s the point?

    A sincere conversation with The 1975’s Matty Healy
