More on the 1975

The 1975 are back with “People,” their first single from upcoming album Notes On A Conditional Form. 

The band recently released a self-titled track featuring teen climate activist Greta Thunberg. For those who may be unaware, Thunberg is a Swedish teen who skipped school to protest outside of her country’s parliament to raise awareness about the current climate crisis.

The 1975 track pulls the activist’s 2018 speech at the World Economic Forum and places it over soft, melodic music. However, “People” and its futuristic video showcasing a bit of a new aesthetic and sound is the first official single.

In addition to the new track, the band also confirmed Notes On A Conditional Form will drop February 21, 2020. The date was previously speculated after fans uncovered information suggesting this is when it would be released.

It’s definitely a step in a different direction for the 1975 as frontman Matty Healy stated in an interview with ALT 94.9 around Coachella.

“It’s not like a where emo ended up sounding record like My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy sounding record. There’s definite references to Joan Of Arc and Braid and Mineral… you hear a lot of that on No Rome’s new EP, it’s kind of like an emo record and I played drums on that and we were making that the same time we started Notes On A Conditional Form, so it does have this kind of like, Midwest kind of sound to it.”
