The second album of the ‘Music for Cars’ era is yet to surface from the Mancunian indie-pop band.
The last 12 months have been huge for The 1975. The first single ‘Give Yourself a Try’ of the ‘Music for Cars’ era dropped on the 1st of June last year. This was followed up with four more singles across last summer, with the album ‘A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships’ arriving on the 30th of November last year. This was followed up with an arena tour, kicking off in January this year. The tour is due to reach its zenith with a headline slot at Reading and Leeds this August.
However the second album of the era (and the band’s fourth overall) is yet to surface. The original plan was for the album to drop on June 1st this year – exactly a year after ‘Give Yourself a Try’ was released. However it was later confirmed by frontman Matty Healy that a single will instead drop at this time. There were rumours floating around that this single will be called ‘The Birthday Party’.
However, the single and the album are yet to surface. NME have reported that the band’s manager, Jamie Oborne, states that the single will likely drop before their Reading and Leeds headline slot. As for the album, no word yet. I guess we will have to wait and see…
