With just a couple of days left until the release of their sophomore album, The 1975 have premiered another new track from the upcoming record. On Tuesday (Feb. 23), the band headed over the Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 program to debut “A Change of Heart.” Unlike their previously released songs, “A Change of Heart” finds the band getting all sorts of sad on the ballad.
In an interview that followed the song’s premiere, the group was asked about the song by Mac. They responded by telling the DJ that they couldn’t exactly remember the writing process for the song, but that they wanted it to be simple. “Just three notes and the truth…Just three notes and some serious conviction,” the British band reveal. Listen to the new song as well as the complete interview here.
The 1975’s new album, I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It is set to be released this Friday, Feb. 26 through Dirty Hit. In support of the new album, the group will be heading out on tour this spring. The North American trek is set to kick off on April 18 at the Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles. The complete list of dates can be seen here.
On Monday (Feb. 22), 9 to 5 Mac revealed that Apple’s Beats 1 will be sponsoring a concert by the band which will air live on Thursday, Feb. 25 beginning at noon EST. The concert will reportedly take place in Los Angeles on an undisclosed rooftop and will feature the band performing songs from the record. No word yet on whether Beats 1 will exclusively stream the concert or if fans of the band can watch it elsewhere.
