The 1975 have confirmed that the release of their forthcoming record, Notes on a Conditional Form, has been delayed. The band’s fourth record was scheduled to drop February 21st, but it’s looking like an April 24th release is on the cards.

Matty Healy took to Instagram Live on Monday to break the news of the delay. “Sorry to fuck you about,” he shared, explaining that the band are busy finishing the follow up to 2018’s visionary A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.

“It takes like three months or something to physically make a record on vinyl so it comes out on the 24th of April, I think,” said Healy. “Sorry if that’s annoying or whatever…For the sake of a couple of months, in the grand scheme of things [the delay] doesn’t really make any difference.”

To tide fans over until the release date, the band will be dropping a brand new single this week. On Thursday, their latest single ‘Me and You Together’ song will debut on BBC Radio 1.

In an interview with Zane Lowe, Healy revealed that the latest single is “really lovely. It’s sad of course, but it’s really lovely.

“I wrote it for that film I started writing…but I haven’t done anything about it besides make this.”

This will mark the fourth offering of the new album that the band have released, following ‘Frail State of Mind’, ‘People’ and ‘The 1975’.
