All eyes were on Healy when he tweeted, “NOW I will retreat from the world to make Music For Cars. Please keep informing me. I learn so much from our fans and I value you so much x.” It got even more exciting after Healy deleted that tweet with everyone asking the same question, is this really happening?

That tweet came after he announced that “I like it when you sleep is coming to an end,” followed by “Music For Cars.” I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It dropped in February 2016 and became a massive No. 1 album for the band.

Healy wasn't the only band member teasing the release of new music either, as drummer George Daniel kept our speculation alive in November with an Instagram post of Healy at a keyboard on top of the caption, “2018.”

Healy confirmed the news in an interview with Zane Lowe, along with mentioning that it shares the name as their third EP.

That EP, released in March 2013, featured “Anobrain,” “Chocolate,” “HNSCC,” “Head.Cars.Bending” and “Me.”

The 1975 are currently on a massive tour of North America, which includes a sold-out date at Madison Square Garden. In fact, much of the tour is sold out.

Support comes from Pale Waves and Colouring.
