Fans of The 1975 should be getting pretty excited right now, with news that the band could be gearing up to release new music within a matter of weeks.
Back in November, The 1975 kicked off their ‘Music For Cars’ era with the release of their third album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. While the record has since become one of the group’s most beloved, it only signified the start of a productive period for the group, with a new album on the way in 2019.
While Notes On A Conditional Form is reportedly on track to be unleashed in May, fans have been wondering if we might indeed be hearing some new music in the preceding months.
Taking to Twitter overnight, a fan of the band asked The 1975’s manager Jamie Oborne whether the rumours of a new single coming this month were true or not.
“We are working hard to get new music ready yes,” Oborne responded. “Not sure about this month will depend if it’s ready.”

While we’re not too sure whether we will indeed get a new single this month, frontman Matty Healy explained to Q (via NME) last month that the group’s new album will be quite different, featuring influences from the likes of Burial and The Streets.
“It’s really deconstructed. There’s some quippy lyrical bits that will make up a narrative,” Healy explained. “I don’t want to compare A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships and this too much, because they are two completely different times.”
In related news, The 1975 are set to make their return to Australia this year when they bring their A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships tour to local shores for a series of high-profile dates.
