Pale Waves have revealed they’re working with The 1975 frontman Matty Healy on a new song, and we can’t wait to hear it. 

The 1975 and Pale Waves are both signed to the same label, Dirty Hit, and now a collab is finally happening.

Pale Waves singer Heather Baron Gracie posted a photo of the band with Healy, appropriately captioning it “bunch of emos”. 

In the comments, Healy says he felt “slightly responsible” for the emo pic. However, the real news came when Gracie responded to a fan who said “if you don’t make a song together I will be mad”. 

“It’s happening,” Gracie replied. Check out the full post below.

Healy previously praised Pale Waves when he talked about his love for guitar-driven music.

It happened when the 1975 performed at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in May and during an interview, Healy said that guitar music is still alive and well.

However, on stage, he gave a very different statement when joking to the crowd.

“Here’s something from the past, a guitar solo,” he told the crowd while playing.

However, after, he explained his love of guitar music.

“I think I was joking. I hope I’m joking … because I think as long as guitar music is interesting, then it’s still relevant,” he said to BBC when he got off stage.

“We’re all music obsessives. There are really interesting guitar bands around like Black Midi and Pale Waves,” he said. “I think as long as guitar music is interesting, then it’s still relevant.”

This is not Healy’s only collab coming in the foreseeable future. He recently took to Twitter to tease a new track with Charli XCX.

“Charlie XCX is a fucking force. She wrote Pop 2 IN A WEEK and when she told me that I was a bit like ‘….erm yeah cool sure’”

“Sent her a beat at like 5pm yesterday and woke up this morning to a HIT.

A MONSTER TUNE!! I’m prolific but she’s on some shit @charli_xcx”

When asked if the 1975 would be featured on the track, Healy replied:

“Not sure yet but me and Rome and George produced”

More the 1975 news

The 1975 are gearing up to premiere another new track this Thursday called “People”. The song will be the second from the band’s upcoming record, Notes on a Conditional Form. 

They’ve previously dropped “The 1975,” the first track from the album featuring teen climate activist Greta Thunberg

Along with the sustainability theme, the band recently revealed they printed over some old shirts with new logos relating to their upcoming album.

Healy took to Instagram to share a video of the revamped shirts.

The shirts were originally printed with old tour dates and logos from their 2013 debut album. Now, each shirt is finding new life by being printed over with a Notes on a Conditional Form logo.

The band also revealed fans would be able to bring any of their old the 1975 shirts to Reading and Leeds and have the same printing done to them.

“OK! So here is the first drop,” Healy posted on Instagram. “We are not making new shirts for now. Unsustainable. SO, AND I’M SO FUCKING INTO THIS. This run is all old shirts (first album, early tours etc) that we had kept and have reprinted as your NOACF shirts. You will also be able to bring any old 1975 shirt or ANY bands you love shirts to Reading festival and have the same print done over the top there and then 🥾🌍 EDIT: Reprinting is FREE if you bring your own 1975 shirt at both LEEDS and READING!”
