The 1975 have been teasing using for a few months now and honestly the wait is excruciating. There hasn’t been any new music since 2016’s epic “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It?”. At least at the end of last year, the band surprise released their new live album “HD002798”.
Yesterday, a fan tweeted an image of artwork similar to “I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It?” On Twitter, The 1975’s manager Jaime Osborne replied on a fans post “Yes for a few more days..”
Could this mean new material? Or could this be referring to rumours of an upcoming world tour? A few weeks ago, Jamie went to his socials saying the band’s live shows would be the “biggest live spectacle in the world”.
Now don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with a bit of a tease here and there. But nothing makes sense!
What about Music For Cars?
After many cryptic posts, the band have deleted months of social media posts. With the last post showing the first official “Music For Cars” album teaser, released July 14 of last year.
Later, Healy hinted while headlining the main stage on Friday night of England’s Latitude Festival:
“We had an album called I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It. It became an era and tonight is the end of that era. It’s the start of a new era called Music for Cars.”
Speaking to NME, Healy explained why they’re reusing the name of one the band’s early EP for album three.
“‘Music For Cars” was an EP named for our love for Brian Eno,” Healy said. “We’re using it as the album title now because of how meta and self-referential everything has become in the world of The 1975, and ‘Music For Cars’ was always my favourite title of everything we’d ever done, so it kinda made sense to wrap it up that way.”
Right now, all we can expect is something is going to happen on April 28th. What can it be? Honestly, we do not now.
