The 1975's next album will "change the world" in summer 2018
The next album from The 1975 is coming in early summer 2018, and it’ll change the world. That’s what Matty Healy is saying.

Speaking to Dork in this month’s cover feature, the band’s iconic leader revealed that “there will be something” released in the next twelve months, following a blunt tweet that declared fans should expect new material in 2017.

“That was me slightly pissed and being honest with myself about how impatient I am,” he explained. “There’s not going to be another album next year because we all know how seriously I take our albums, but I think we’ll put out a piece of music.

“We’ve met so many artists, who we’re not necessarily going to be working with, but it’s been a very inspiring time for us. I just know we’ll definitely put out a single next year, or an EP which will lead up to the album, which I reckon will come out early summer 2018. It’ll be really sad but it’ll change the world ‘cause it’ll be fucking sick.You take what’s amazing about the previous record and you distill it and you refine it and extend it and you build on it, that’s always our idea.”

But as for specifics as to what to expect, Matty reveals: “I don’t fucking know. I talk a million miles a minute. I’ll be writing one song and I’ll think I know what the whole record is going to sound like, and it completely changes.

I know that it’s going to be more all over the place than the last record in regards to it being recorded in so many different places. It’s already quite a weird record. I’ve written a lot of it. It’s going to be… I don’t know. It is interesting to think I don’t know. I’ve got an idea of what I want to do visually and then it becomes a process of procrastination. Figuring out exactly what I want to do.”
