The 1975 Give Fans Two Reasons To Smile And One Reason To Frown

Yay! A new song. Yay! A new tour. Boo! Their new album's release date got pushed back.

Who's better at sharing bad news with a little delight tacked on than The 1975? Although their forthcoming album, Notes on a Conditional Form, has been pushed back a couple of months, the Matt Healy-led band delivered double the good news to make up for the bad announcement: Not only did they release a new tune, "Me & You Together Song," but they also announced a new tour. What a way to build anticipation.

Let's start with the bad news. While Notes on a Conditional Form was supposed to come out on February 21 (and even more originally in 2019), that date is now out the window. The new date for the LP's release is April 24.

But now, the good stuff! The 1975 have also revealed North American tour dates. They head out on April 27 and perform their first show in Houston. The spring trek wraps right up before summer on June 12 in Manchester, Tennessee. Supporting them on the tour are indie-rock musician Phoebe Bridgers and singer Beabadoobee.

Are you overwhelmed with giddiness yet? Just wait until you hear their new tune, "Me & You Together Song." The cheery tune finds Healy trying to slide out of the friend zone into a prospective lover's arms. Drums doing jumping jacks make the mood a festive, celebratory one. If this were the mid-2000s, Adam Sandler would be chasing a lover's taxi to tell the woman inside that he loves her with this playing in the background.

OK, we're finally done with all of the news. The wait for Notes on a Conditional Form just got a bit longer, but with all the news that's come with this pushed back date, the world can manage. The 1975's forthcoming LP will also feature "Frail State of Mind," "People," and their self-titled song that features climate change activist Greta Thunberg are all here as well, to help us through the wait.
