UK indie-rockers The 1975 have now finished their biggest Australian tour to date, and the band say they’ve already locked in a schedule for their next recording effort. Frontman Matt Healy tells Music Feeds the first single from their their next album, the follow-up to 2013’s self-titled debut, will see the light of day before the end of the year.
In a recent interview with Music Feeds, Healy revealed the quartet will have their next studio album out in just over twelve months time. “2016, definitely, February to April,” Healy said.
The 1975 are already thinking about the content of the record, conceptualising a more colourful affair than their monochrome debut. “We’re from Manchester, Macclesfield, and the first record was about the rain, and this second record is about not being in the rain and doing whatever the fuck you want in the sun,” Healy revealed.
“So I’m gonna do that for a year, and then we’ll come back to Australia and do some shows.”
What will the band do with the rest of 2015 then? “We’ll put a single out this year,” Healy noted, also claiming that the band will “make a record and eat well” throughout 2015.
“That seems to be my thing,” Healy said. “A bit of ostentatious living, I hope. That’s what we want to do on this next record.”
