After lots of hints, Matty has finally confirmed
that The 1975
's third album will be called 'Music For Cars
Obviously, it's a reference to their third EP which is also called 'Music For Cars'. Also in the interview with Zane, he confirmed that the album will the third in a trilogy of records. "We were always gonna do a trilogy of records. I'm not saying that after this album it's the end of The 1975, but it's the end of an era."
Speaking about the new album last year
Matty explained, “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.
“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.
“It’s already quite a weird record. I’ve written a lot of it. 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 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.”
The 1975 will end their ‘I Like It When You Sleep
‘ chapter with a headline performance at Latitude Festival on July 14th.
