There'll be no new single from The 1975 on 1st June, and other important updates

"There's a lot to do" on The 1975's next album 'Notes On A Conditional Form', according to a series of Q&A responses by the band's manager Jamie Oborne over the weekend.

The second instalment of their 'Music For Cars' project, the full-length is expected to land at some point this year and follows up on last year's epic 'A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships'.

Responding to one fan, Oborne revealed that there'd be "no new song on June 1st", following decided-on-the-spot suggestions from Matty in an interview earlier this year that they could deliver the first taster around that time.

He went on to say he'd know better when 'Notes...' would arrive after the "week ahead", and that a single would definitely be with us before the band's headline slot at Reading and Leeds this August, though he's not sure about the full record yet.

There's also set to be more The 1975 European dates announced 'after festival season', with another UK tour soon. The plan to take over a venue for a week and play through their back catalogue also still seems to be done if - in Oborne's own words - "we don't bankrupt ourselves".

There'll also be no more videos for tracks from 'A Brief Inquiry...', 'FYI'. A side point, perhaps, but proof focus is now firmly on what comes next.

In other news, Oborne revealed Wolf Alice have just started writing album three, while a Dirty Hit tour which could feature No Rome is planned for the UK this winter and early spring next year Stateside.

Phew. There. Consider yourself 'updated'.
