The 1975's Matty Healy claims we're getting a Drive Like I Do album in February 2021

So that's definitely happening then. Probably. TBC.

The 1975's Matty Healy claims we're getting a Drive Like I Do album in February 2021

There's a saying about being fooled more than once. When it comes to the potential for an album from Drive Like I Do - the 1975's pre-fame guise - we've chased after more than one less than fruitful shiny lie. Not this time though. This time, we're starting to believe we're finally getting what we've craved for so long.

Earlier this year, frontman Matty Healy suggested to us in a Dork cover interview that a DLID record was on the horizon. Now, on an Instagram Live chat with clothing brand Phug, he's confirmed it. A Drive Like I Do album will be out in February - maybe Valentines Day. We know, Matty loves to give us release dates in advance.

This all comes after some teasing throughout the week, including Matty seemingly starting an Instagram account for the band, members of the group tweeting photos from that era, and another appearance for the acronym 'GHEMB' on Matty's socials - something he referred to earlier this year in a Reddit post.

You can check out some of the video below. We just hope it has our favourite track from the first hoax, 'If croissants are bourgeoise I don’t want to be a proletariat'. Still sounds like a banger.
