SWMRS and FIDLAR are pairing up for a sweet joint cover of the 1975‘s track “People” off of their upcoming record Notes on a Conditional Form.

The two bands gave their take on the track which is less than a year old and marks the first bit of music available from the 1975’s new album.

The song was originally released by the 1975 back in August 2019. Frontman Matty Healy stated in an interview at the time that the song was a definite step in a new direction for them.

“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.”

Now, it’s being collectively covered by the two punk rock bands.

The new cover also comes along with a visualizer video with tons of black and white photos of the band’s.
