Matty Healy of The 1975 has revealed he’s been self-isolating in the studio, currently working on new music. While in conversation with Annie Mac, Healy also promoted their new single, ‘If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know)’.
During his interview on Radio 1 last night, Healy said: “Like everybody else, I’m in the same situation and taking it day by day,”
The ‘Frail State Of Mind’ frontman added: “I feel really, really lucky to keep being able to do what I do, when so many people can’t. I’m just trying to not take that for granted.”
Healy also talked working in quarantine. He said: “As soon as [lockdown] started to happen, I know that it was a safe, boxed-off area that I could go. I’ve been here ever since.”
“We didn’t have any plans to be making our own music right now, because we were going to be on tour, but we managed to make this place a little Dirty Hit thing.”
He added: “We’ve been self-isolating with a couple of people from the label. We’ve been working on their music and working on our music.”
Healy shared his thoughts on the process behind making new music. To which he said: “It’s been natural, but it’s been productive. It’s a weird time, and I didn’t think this was gonna happen. With such a massive seismic shift, I’m very into narrative and drama, and [I was originally thinking] ‘Is this the last thing for the band? Is this the end of an era?’”
“I do get turned on by all those ideas, but now there’s been a massive reset. It feels like a different world already. If we wanna exist in this world, we’re gonna have to do something else.”
Recently, The 1975 unveiled the tracklisting to their forthcoming album, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’. Check it out here. Sadly, the album has been delayed once again. Originally slated for today, the album’s new release date has been set for May 22.
Come on, the wait will be worth it.
