Whatever you were expecting from The 1975, it probably wasn't 'People'

Whatever you were expecting from The 1975, it probably wasn't 'People'

Wow. That's the reaction Dork HQ had when we first heard the new song from The 1975. And that's not us playing "we heard this before you" twat bingo. It's a marker of just what an unexpected - but welcome - delight 'People' is. Strap yourself in, Dear Reader. This is gonna get loud.

The first single to be lifted from the band's forthcoming fourth album 'Notes on a Conditional Form', 'People' isn't your standard The 1975 track, if such a thing even exists anymore. Instead, it's a full on, raw and ready punk assault. Bands this big don't make decisions this brave, but then most bands aren't The 1975.

If you want our full thoughts on the track, you can check them out here.

The track comes alongside a Matty Healy, Warren Fu and Ben Ditto directed video which fits the tracks perfectly. Seriously. After watching it you're gonna be digging out that wallet chain and heading down punkyfish for some new clobber.

The 1975 are set to heading Reading & Leeds this weekend - you'll be able to check out our coverage right here, starting tomorrow. 'Notes on A Conditional Form' is set for release on 21st February 2019. You can check out the details you need to know on that here.
