Matty Healy has confirmed ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ will be out later than expected. Originally due for February 21, Healy confirmed the album would be out on April 24.
“We have been finishing our album, so we’ve been very busy,” Healy said on Instagram live.
“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. Sorry if that’s annoying or whatever.”
The frontman said he was “really proud” of the album, declaring that he and the band “love it”. He added: “for the sake of a couple of months, in the grand scheme of things [the delay] doesn’t really make any difference.”
However, there are some upsides to the latest announcement, as he further revealed four more songs would be released. The album is set to contain 21 tracks.
He discussed the upcoming fourth single, saying: “‘Me & You Together Song’ will come out in two days,”
Furthermore, there will be a single in February, March and one more right before the album drops. Currently, The 1975 had released three singles from the new album. They dropped a new version of their opener, ‘The 1975′, featuring a Greta Thunberg monologue. This was followed by ‘People’, and most recently, ‘Frail State Of Mind’.
He assured the band’s followers that ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ would be “definitely coming out April 24th”.
He added: “I’m sorry to fuck you about but that’s just how long it takes.”
The 1975 recently promoted a music video opportunity for couples. The band’s record label Dirty Hit posted an announcement to say they’d be filming a new music video on January 18, requesting for couples to get involved.
In order to do so, they’d simply need to email their name, address, age, and a photo of the two of them to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
