We finally have some new music from the 1975…and it only took a couple of months.
On Thursday (Jan. 16), the British band appeared on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 Show to debut their latest single “Me & You Together Song.”
The upbeat tune matches the lyrics which finds our narrator (Matty?) talking about falling in love with a girl who just so happens to be his best friends. Throughout the track, we hear him sing about it being okay that she doesn’t want to ruin their friendship but how he has had dreams of a future together with this unknown woman.
And yes, he even makes reference to how people think he’s gay and also apologizes for acting queer (dude, you do you).
As some fans have pointed out, “Me & You Together Song” sounds like it could have easily found a home in a 2000s coming-of-age teenage film (not that we’re complaining).
Listen to “Me & You Together Song” above.
“Me & You Together Song” is the fourth single off Notes on a Conditional Form. It joins their traditional “The 1975” track, “People,” and “Frail State of Mind” on the forthcoming studio effort.
Earlier this week during an Instagram Live session, Healy revealed that the album’s release date was once again pushed back.
The bad news: The album is due out in late April.
The good news: They will drop a new song a month until the album is out.
Notes on a Conditional Form will no longer be released on Feb. 21; it will now see an April 24 release date (if we’re lucky).
Because having to wait an extra couple of months for an album that was due out last year sucks, the 1975 have also unleashed a slew of tour dates for April, May, and June.
The cross-continent excursion begins on April 27 at the Cynthia Woods Pavilion in Houston. It concludes a month-and-a-half later on June 11 at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth, Georgia.
Tickets go on sale next Friday, Jan. 24, at 9 a.m. local time. If you want to get ahead of the game, you can pre-order Notes on a Conditional Form to gain first dibs on tickets.
Phoebe Bridges and beabadoobee will open for the 1975 throughout the excursion.
Because seeing the 1975 wasn’t enough, the group has also revealed that they will plant a tree for every single ticket sold.
Talk about doing some good for the world.
