Brit pop-rockers The 1975 have debuted Love Me, the first taste of their forthcoming sophomore album with a mouthful of a name I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It.
It comes after months of teasing their fans with new music. In June their social media accounts went dark sparking fans to think they were gone. Thankfully, they were only gone for 24 hours, re-emerging with a pink aesthetic.
Well consider the new chapter officially opened because Love Me ushers in a new era for the band with a slightly different sound. It’s definitely more pop than their 2013 self-titled debut and it’s also built upon funky guitars and an ’80s-tinged beat.
The track was premiered on BBC’s Radio 1 in the UK where frontman Matt Healy told host Annie Mac that “there’s a lot lacking in pop music these day.”
“There’s not enough good pop bands now and I’m sick of it,” he said.
It’s a total ear worm and raises anticipation even more for LP2. It is due for release in February of next year.
