Matt Healy says The 1975’s next album will be ‘more British-sounding’

Hot on the heels of their sell-out gig at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Saturday night, The 1975 frontman Matt Healy has said that album number four is going to be more British-sounding.

The Manchester foursome have experimented with different styles across their three previous releases, and Healy says next offering Notes On A Conditional Form will be more British-sounding than their current release, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.

The band are recording Notes On A Conditional Form in London, whereas third and most recent offering A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships was partially recorded in Los Angeles.

“It’s because I’m in England,” said Healy said when asked to explain the difference in styles in an interview with Q magazine.

“It’s really deconstructed. There’s some quippy lyrical bits that will make up a narrative.

“I don’t want to compare A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships and this too much, because they are two completely different times.”

The new album is due for release this summer.
