The 1975 have taken to the airwaves to launch their latest track, ‘Me & You Together Song’, from Music For Cars at the Live Lounge.
Talking about the track Matty Healy said: “it’s an idea that’s been around since ‘Drive Like I Do’, but this version of it is quite recent” continuing on after having played the track matty stated “I was writing a film at some point, then I wanted a song for it”.
Taking on the song’s lyrics Matty said: “I think what I always do, I always try and juxtapose happy music with sad lyrics. Something like that. This is just straight up vibing instead”
Talking about Music For Cars the band confirmed the album will have 22 tracks long, spanning roughly one hour twenty minutes. Talking about the content of it Matty dropped that “there is an acknowledgement of an end of an era, it references every part of the 1975 catalogue. We made it on the road and it’s taken as long as it’s taken”
He also continued “this is not our last album, we’re not going to do anything like ‘we’re breaking up’.”
Talking about their future plans the band told Annie Mac that “When we finish touring at the end of this year theres a few really specific projects lined up.”, hinting that the film Matty mentioned at the start of the stream may be one of them.
Music For Cars, originally slated for release on February 21st via Dirty Hit has been postponed by the band until April 24th. The album is available to pre-order now on all formats.
