In the lead up to the release of their hotly anticipated third album A Brief Enquiry Into Online Relationships The 1975 have revealed the lyrics for an upcoming single, ‘Love It If We Made It’, set for a release on July 19th.
Following in the most 1975 fashion, the band have made several references to the (unfortunate) current state of the world, taking aim at the likes of Donald Trump and Kanye West, even paying tribute to the late rapper Lil Peep.
The lyrics read, “Selling melanin and then, suffocate the black men”, even making reference to the tweet “Thank you Kanye, very cool!”. Feelings of impending doom and a looming apocalypse permeate what will definitely be a dark track, with the band making reference to an oncoming war with, “war has been incited and guess what you’re all invited”.
Aside from the musings on how modern life has failed us and that we may be basically done for, the band have paid tribute to the late emo-rapper Lil Peep, who passed away of an accidental drug overdose late last year.

The 1975 released their first single off the album ‘Give Yourself A Try’ earlier last month, giving fans their first insight into the band’s new era. Just last week the band were back to their cryptic ways sending fans care packages that included a fanzine, a typewritten note (which we can assume is from Matty) and a sheet of paper which labelled “DH00279”.
It also included a sheet of paper with a quote by Donald Trump saying, “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything”, which probably means their disapproval of Donald Trump will pop up as a recurring theme on A Brief Enquiry Into Online Relationships.
