The 1975’s manager sounds off on new record, tour

It’s been months since fans to the 1975 have been given any kind of information pertaining to their much-anticipated third studio album. As of now, fans have only been told that it will be titled Music for Cars and that it will be released sometime in 2018. Late last month, the band’s longtime manager, Jaime Oborne, took to social media to drop some hints and answer some questions about the impending record and the touring that will revolve around the new release.

For fans who have had the opportunity to see the 1975 live, their shows are a dream of staging and lighting. According to Oborne, this time around, the band is going to push the envelope by  making this “the biggest live spectacle in the world.”

“No we want the first shows to be the biggest live spectacle in the world,” Oborne posted on Twitter much to the delight of excited fans. But like with life, with the good news comes the not-so-good news.

The major good news come in the form of Oborne telling fans that they should expect some major tour announcement to be made sometime in the summer. The not-so-good revelation came when Oborne revealed that the group’s United Kingdom fans would be the first to experience the “big spectacle” in all its glory.

“Yes will be UK to start,” he responded to a fan who asked if the group’s still-not-announced tour will kick off in their home country.

Like with most fans and music publications, the one question they wanted answered was when Music for Cars would be released. Sadly, Oborne was unable to answer that question because the new record is reportedly “not finished.” He followed it up by stating that fans will “get a lot in 2018.”

Music for Cars will be the follow-up to the 1975’s hit sophomore album I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It which was released in 2016.
