Watch The 1975 Go Rock Star Glamour in ‘Love Me’ Music Video

 

 

A week after dropping their long-awaited new song, “Love Me,” The 1975 is back with the music video for the track. The music video finds the band very clearly mocking the “rock and roll” ideology. We see them hanging out with girls, partying in a Jacuzzi, performing on the stage alla Motley Crue, and hanging out with a lot of celebrity friends (aka the cutouts of celebrities).

Frontman Matthew Healy had the following to say about the subject of the song:

“With ‘Love Me’ we wanted to capture the neon-hued enthralling acquisition of success and excess, the screaming momentum, the sexy daze. Everything is REDICULOUS! But, is it? The only art worth any investment is art that makes one feel personally addressed. A simple truth, or set of truths, that galvanises an awareness and passion within an individual and in doing so immerses the individual into a sense of shared experience and community founded upon that same personal connection or experience. Too many artists care what others think. We are for the ‘community’! A non-linear observation on everything that has been and what will become. A lack of understanding of the world we are living in. The post-ironic notion of the modern world. Selfie mythologizing. Creating how we consume. Fragments of culture. Not settling for what you’re given. WE’VE JUST COME TO REPRESENT A DECLINE IN THE STANDARDS OF WHAT WE ACCEPT.”

Check out the music video for “Love Me” below.

“Love Me” is the lead single off of The 1975’s upcoming new album, I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It which is set to be released some time in February 2016.

The 1975 announced back in June they would be hitting the road even though at the time they had not confirmed if it would coincide with the release of a new album. A few months later, they officially confirmed what fans had been waiting for.
