    NME has pulled some new quotes from Matt Healey of The 1975 from the most recent issue of Q. It looks like the band’s already working on their new album:

    Healy revealed his hopes for the record to Q, adding that he’d already penned two tracks for the album that are “as good as anything on the previous album” along with “lots of ambient and classical tracks”.

    “If you look at third albums, ‘OK Computer’ or ‘The Queen Is Dead’, that’s what we need to do.” Healy continued: “I want a legacy. I want people to look back and think our records were the most important pop records that a band put out in this decade.”

    Sweet. 2018 seems so far away, but I know it'll be here soon.

    Honestly hoping for more "This Must Be My Dream"s and "The Sound"s and fewer "I like it when you sleep"s

    Absolutely. Honestly, I would love an album just full of hits from them. I'm not really into their ambient/interlude tracks
  7. SEANoftheDEAD


    I agree. I love "I Like It When You Sleep..", but would kill for an album full of The Sound and She's American type tracks with some of the ambiance connecting tracks.
  8. WTF is going on in this thread and people trying to get rid of the band's best songs.

    Good effin' question - slow jams among their best jams

    Random thought - would love to see the band play a Slow Jam The News segment on Fallon

    I'd love to, however, see some songs in the vein of Intro/Set3, Haunt//Bed, and Antichrist.

    The album being named Music For Cars should make anyone they're going to lean the slow burning ambient route since some of their most classic songs in that vein are on the EP of the same name.

    Y'all in the first half of this thread should listen to the outro of Head.Cars.Bending on repeat until it converts you.

    While I agree, I don't think we ever will.

    So hyped, and can't wait to hear what they come out with next. Love the mindset that they are going into this with for their third one.

    At least for myself, it's not like I don't like the ambient or slow songs but the 1975, lost my head, please be naked, and the title track just seemed to really draw the album out for me. I felt like the album would be picking up steam it would slow down again.

    Those slower, ambient tracks are what make The 1975 one of the best bands of the moment, and not just a very good pop rock band. Go listen to Walk the Moon's TALKINGISHARD or something if you want a full album of just jams.

    Reading through the comment section on their website. Blows my mind how many people wanna shit on this band.

    I love these guys slower, ambient, sometimes instrumental songs, they're part of the band. I think it's natural that people would want an album full of bangers from them though given how good they are. Whatever they put out, Ill listen to.

    There are some awful takes in here, holy shit. Beyond their ambient tracks being amazing, I can't imagine wanting to see less variety on an album.

    Seriously, describing someone the wild stylistic changes throughout ILIWYS would like it sound like you're on drugs, but its amazing how cohesive the album is.

    Definitely a weird start to this thread haha. The slower songs translate so well live too I can't believe people want them to do away with those.
  23. Bryan Diem


    Every post was wrong until Jason showed up. They literally already made an album of "hits" with ambient tracks connecting. Then they made an album expounding upon everything and more from that record. Last thing I'd want to see is a regression to the first album. All I'm hoping is that I can get into the classical stuff, that genre really doesn't appeal to me but I'm sure they'll put a delightful spin on it.
  24. Bryan Diem


    Oh, and more MBV shoegaze moments like lostmyhead and post rock like How to draw and Plese be naked would be welcomed.

    Honestly their ambient/post-rock songs from the DLID days are just as good. Seeing "Lostmyhead" live was amazing. If any band can continue to grow and truly get better every album, it's these guys.
