Matt Healy says The 1975 have already written songs for beyond their next album

The 1975 are one of those bands that just keep working, and working, and working.

Matt Healy has now revealed that the band has already begun working on material following the release of their upcoming album Notes On A Conditional Form.

The 1975 won’t be going anywhere anytime soon, with Matt Healy saying that the band have already got music written following the next album cycle.

Having already released three eclectic songs from their new album, who knows what The 1975 will do next. With the heavy mosh-pit-creating People through to the Burial-esque Frail State of Mind, the new album is shaping up to be the band’s most diverse yet.

The new revelation comes after a fan suggested the band were going on an indefinite hiatus for the next 5 years. Frontman Matty Healy replied to the comment, stating, “Nah. We already have new music for after notes but we’re just not gonna tour brutally for a few years and just make music maybe put it out etc.”

The band have been touring continuously since their inception, including announcing they will be back on Australian shores later this year at their recent Sydney Laneway headlining set. The band recently debuted two new tracks at a show in Nottingham. Guys and If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know) differ in sound and style from the most recent cuts from Notes, showing their ability to blend and mould their signature style to any form of music.

Following their self-titled debut in 2012, The 1975 have carved out a path away from their original indie-tumblr fanbase. Their last album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, was hailed as a genre-less modern masterpiece, discussing the effects of the internet on the world at large. Just put on the glorious call to arms Love It If We Made It or the anthemic I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes) and you will see how bombastic and intelligent rock and pop music can be in the internet age. No matter what your thoughts or opinions on the band are, they are quickly building their place as one of the most experimental and boundary-pushing acts in the world today.

After winning the NME’s Worst Band award in 2014, the magazine recently awarded the group Band of the Decade and the Innovation Award at their 2020 ceremony. Talk about a change of opinion.

It seems superfluous to say that 2020 looks to be a massive year for the band. However, with the upcoming record and tour, it really does seem to be yet ANOTHER massive year for one of the hardest working bands in the world.
