Charli XCX and Christine and the Queens are taking their partnership one step further.

On Thursday (Sept. 5), the duo joined forces for a performance on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. During their stint, the musicians played their recent collaboration “Gone” as well as a cover of the 1975’s “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME.”

The full performance can be streamed here, but if you’re more interested in the 1975 cover, fast-forward the audio to the nine-minute mark.

“Gone” is featured on Charli’s upcoming third full-length record. Charli is due out Sept. 13 through Atlantic Records. Pre-orders for the album are available here.

“Gone” joins a slew of previously released tracks including “1999” with Troye Sivan, “Warm” with HAIM, “Blame It on Your Love” with Lizzo, and “Cross You Out” with Sky Ferreira.

“TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME” is featured on the 1975’s critically-loved album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. Last month, the British band unleashed “People,” the first single off A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ sister album, Notes on a Conditional Form.

In support of the impending release, Charli previously announced plans to embark on a massive fall tour. The Charli LIVE North American outing begins Sept. 20 at the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta and concludes a month later on Oct. 22 at Terminal 5 in New York.

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.

Watch: The 1975 cover Ariana Grande for Live Lounge

With their much-anticipated new album about to hit the streets, the 1975 are back with a little treat for their fans to hold them over until the end of the week. On Monday (Nov. 26), the British band took over BBC Radio 1 for their new Live Lounge session. During the show, the group performed several new tracks from the upcoming record including “Sincerity is Scary,” “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not with You),” and “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME.”

In between all the new music, the four-piece decided to add a cover to their setlist. As a bonus track, the group took on Ariana Grande’s surprise new single, “thank u, next.” Instead of going the way of poppy goodness that the original version of the insightful song leans on, the 1975 decided to make it more like them. Armed with harmonious backup singers to give it a gospel feel, the cover sounds like it could easily fit on any of the group’s previously released albums.

Watch the 1975 cover “thank u, next” above while the full set can be heard here.

The 1975’s new album, A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships, is due out this Friday, Nov. 30. To prepare fans for the album’s release, the quartet unveiled a string of listening parties scheduled to take place on Thursday, Nov. 29, throughout the country. The full list of upcoming listening parties can be found on Twitter.

As for Grande, “thank u, next” has now spent two weeks at the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. The chart-topping song has also landed at the top spot on the Digital Song Sales, On-Demand Streaming Songs, and Streaming Songs charts while also becoming the internet’s favorite new meme. Not too shabby for a song the singer released just a few weeks ago.

Listen: The 1975 drop ‘It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)’

A few days after unveiling the lyrics to another new song off their forthcoming record, the 1975 have dropped the audio for the tune. On Thursday (Oct. 18), the United Kingdom-founded group unleashed “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not with You).” The song, the band’s fifth release from A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships, made its worldwide debut on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 where the host spoke to frontman Matt Healy about it.

During the interaction, the host asked the singer to tell her a little bit about the new song. According to Healy, “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not with You)” may be one of the band’s most “1975-iest” tracks since their 2013 self-titled debut.

“I think it’s the 1975-iest 1975 song since the 1975 debut record,” Healy explains to the host.

“So it’s very, it’s got all of that. I don’t know. It’s been so weird putting out singles off this record because there’s so much going on in it and I don’t really know what to put out first, but this has got a lot of our identity in it and I don’t know. It kind of takes me back a little bit, but it’s still quite forward thinking.”

Listen to the new song above.

“It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)” will join previously released tracks  “Give Yourself A Try,” “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME,” “Sincerity is Scary,” and  “Love It If We Made It” on the 1975’s upcoming new album. A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships is due out Nov. 30 through Dirty Hit Records. Pre-orders for the album are available on the 1975’s website.

The audio of the song comes a few days after the 1975 posted the song’s lyrics on social media and confirmed that the full song would come along before the week’s end.

Earlier this week, the 1975 released the official music video for their current single, “Love It If We Made It.”

As if the music video’s release wasn’t enough, the group formally announced their North American tour itinerary. The excursion will begin on April 15 at the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix and conclude several months later on June 3 at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto.

Fan pre-sale are currently available for those who pre-ordered the group’s forthcoming record. General ticket sales will begin next Friday, Oct. 26, at 10 a.m. local time.

Fellow label mates Pale Waves and No Rome will join the band on their headlining jaunt. Pale Waves released their debut album My Mind Makes Noises back in September while No Rome released his RIP Indo Hisashi EP in August.

Watch No Rome and the 1975 channel boy bands in ‘Narcissist’

A couple of months after releasing his catchy song featuring fellow Dirty Hits label mates the 1975, No Rome has now debuted the track’s official music video. On Friday (Oct. 12), the Manila-based artist premiered the music video for “Narcissist.” The over-three-minute clip begins with Rome standing on a dark sound stage with brightly-colored lights illuminating him from behind as he sings the song.

The video primarily features footage of the musician singing the tune on the dark sound stage as well as reclining on a white throne in a white room with two Dalmatians at his side. The clip also features some cool boy band-esque synchronized dancing, the guys from the 1975 hanging around a sports car (and skating boarding in the background), and the 1975 frontman Matty Healy rocking some serious bright turquoise hair as he sings and dances with No Rome throughout the clip.

Watch the music video for “Narcissist” above.

In an interview with Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show, the musician revealed how the collaboration came to be.

“I made a demo and then I sent it over to Matty because we were listening to the stuff that I’ve been working on recently. I sent him over that track and he also fell in love with it the same way I did,” the musician explains to the host.

And he was like ‘oh, do you want to do something with it?’ and I was like “F— yeah!”

“Narcissist” is featured on No Rome’s RIP Indo Hisashi EP. The set of tunes was released back in August and is currently available for purchase here.

As for the 1975, the group’s much-anticipated new album, A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships, is due out Nov. 30. Originally set for an October release time frame, the four-piece surprised fans by announcing that its release had been moved back a month.

Since confirming its release, the group has debuted a total of four songs from the forthcoming record; “Give Yourself A Try,” “Love It If We Made It,” “TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME,” and “Sincerity is Scary.”
