Start the countdown, it looks like there's something new coming from The 1975

Reinforce 'The Internet'. Set up your Google alerts. Prepare for our on brand Dork mega-stan bullshit to go into overdrive. It looks like The 1975 are getting ready to share something new.

Last night (Saturday 19th October), the band started another of their traditional countdowns, posting a new image to social media. Kicking off with a gigantic 5, branded in livery for their forthcoming album 'Notes On A Conditional Form', it came alongside the message "// 5 DAYS // LOVE".

Chances are, it's a countdown to the latest track to come from the record, which - based on the timeline - should be expected to land at some point on Thursday. Of late, there's been a lot of teasing of a song titled 'Frail State Of Mind', which has been described as influenced by UK Garage and The Streets. In a chat with Dazed, it was described as a "sad, Burial kind of thing about social anxiety, you know, going out. I'm better at it happening, me and you sitting down and having a conversation, than thinking about going to do the conversation. The social event's normally always fine, but the build up to it, I hate it."

A few days ago, frontman Matty Healy posted a screen grab of a mastered version of the track to his Instagram. Late last year, Matty also revealed the song would feature GRAMMY-winning trumpeter Roy Hargrove, who passed away aged 49.

If iTunes is to be believed, the song will be track four on 'Notes...', and come in at 3:54 in length - just in case you need to do the maths on how many times you'll be able to listen to it within the first hour it's out. It's 15 and a bit, if you were wondering.

Whatever it is, it'll follow up to the short, sharp shock of 'People', which arrived right before the band's headline stand at Reading & Leeds Festivals this summer. The album, 'Notes On A Conditional Form', is set to drop on 21st February 2020, with a full UK tour around it. You can find all the dates here.
