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 band 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.”

The world is already buzzing about the message of the song. Check out what people are saying on Twitter about The 1975.

However, some fans have taken to Twitter to express their dislike for the new direction.

Check out “People” from the 1975 along with the lyrics below.

The 1975 “People” lyrics

Wake up, wake up, wake up
It’s Monday morning and we’ve only got a thousand of them left
Well, I know it feels pointless and you don’t have any money
But we’re all just gonna try our fucking best
Well, my generation wanna fuck Barack Obama
Living in a sauna with legal marijuana

Well, girls, food, gear
I don’t like going outside, so bring me everything here
(Yeah, woo, yeah, that’s right)

People like people
They want alive people
The young surprise people
Stop fucking with the, fucking with the
People like people
They want alive people
The young surprise people
Stop fucking with the, fucking with the
People like people
They want alive people
The young surprise people
Stop fucking with the, fucking with the
People like people
They want alive people
The young surprise people
Stop fucking with the kids

Wake up, wake up, wake up
We are appalling and we need to stop just watching shit in bed
And I know it sounds boring and we like things that are funny
But we need to get this in our fucking heads
The economy’s a goner, republic’s a banana, ignore it if you wanna

Fuck it, I’m just gonna get girls, food, gear
I don’t like going outside, so bring me everything here
(Yeah, woo, yeah)

People like people
They want alive people
The young surprise people
Stop fucking with the, fucking with the

The young surprise people
Stop fucking with the kids
