The 1975 made a splash last week when they released their music video for their new single, “Love Me.” The video which features the group mocking the rock and roll lifestyle of today which probably made their fans (and haters) laugh. Now, we’re getting a little more information about their upcoming new album.
Followers of the United Kingdom band already knew that their second studio album will be titled I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, but that was it. As it turns out, their sophomore effort is scheduled to be released on Feb. 26 through Dirty Hit/Polydor Records.Pre-orders for it are also currently available over at their website.
In addition to the release date information, the band also revealed that this record will not have the typical amount of tracks on it. Instead of the normal 11-13 tracks, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It will feature 17 tracks. Pretty sweet deal.
In support of the new album, the band will be hitting the road beginning Monday, Nov. 9. After touring the United Kingdom throughout the month of November, the band will then head to the United States for about two weeks. The complete list of tour dates can be seen below.
