The 1975 trade their signature Brit-pop for a heavier sound in ‘People’

Wake up, people! We have some brand-spanking-new music from the 1975.

On Thursday (Aug. 22), following days of teasing, the British rock band unveiled their brand new song. Titled “People,” the latest track sounds completely unlike previous tracks with it’s harder and rougher sound and screaming vocals throughout its three-minute runtime.

Frontman Matty Healy previously said that their new album would sound different than its predecessor, and it if this song is any indication, then it’s holding true.

To coincide with the new song’s debut, the group also unleashed the music video for “People.” Directed by Healy, the clip finds the band at the center of a room surrounded by screens. On the screen, images and the lyrics of the new tune broadcast around the foursome. Check out the music video for “People” above.

“People” is the first official single off the act’s upcoming studio album Notes on a Conditional Form. The forthcoming record will reportedly see a release time frame of February 2020, something fans may not be too happy about. Note on a Conditional Form is the long-awaited companion album to 2018’s A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships.

Last month, the quartet released their traditional self-titled track. The tracked featured a monologue from 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

Earlier this week, the 1975 were announced as one of many bands slated to take the stage at the 2019 incarnation of Riptide Music Festival. The 1975 join The Killers, the Revivalists, Judah & the Lion, Catfish and the Bottleman, and more on this year’s roster.

Around the time of their Riptide appearance, the group will be in the middle of a short North American outing.

The tour begins on Nov. 16 with a two-night engagement at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey and concludes on Nov. 24 at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa.
