The 1975 are also expected to release their fourth record, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ by the time of 2019 at Glasgow Summer Sessions. The band’s manager Jamie Osborne previously told a fan on twitter they were aiming for the release of their new album by June 1st, 2019.
The band have certainly been busy and recently covered Ariana Grandes ‘Thank U, Next’ in the BBC Radio One Live Lounge last week, introducing the cover Healy said: ‘She’s become the main protagonist, if that’s the right word, in most people’s lives. [She’s the] person I see spoken about most. And somebody I’ve started to really care about for some reason. She’s had a right old tough time and I like her a lot. I think she’s cool. And she’s got a great voice, and I don’t, so I’m gonna sing one of her songs.’
Recently the 1975 just shared their new music video for ‘It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)’ a track from their third album directed by Warren Fu and written by lead singer Matty Healy. There is a crossover scene with the bands previous music video ‘Sincerity Is Scary’. You can watch the brand-new music video below.
