After much speculation, British alternative group, the 1975 have announced the title of their third album. In an interview with Zane Low on Beats Radio 1, singer Matt Healy officially confirmed that the band’s new album will be called, Music for Cars, which references their second or third EP.
The 1975 are currently gearing up for the final leg of their tour of their 2016 record, I like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It. The album was a massive hit around the world, debuting at number 1 in New Zealand, Australia, the UK, the US and Canada and received positive reviews from critics. With a loyal fan base behind them, their follow up record is set to be just as successful. Healy said that, Music for Cars will mark an end of a chapter for the band as it will be the last record to be released from their planned album trilogy.
“We were always going to do a trilogy of records. I’m not saying that after this album it’s the end of the 1975, but it’s definitely the end of an era,” he explained.
We don’t have much detail about the sound of the album yet, but Healy revealed to Q Magazine back in March that their new music is, “as good as anything on the previous album,” and includes “lots of ambient and classical tracks.” Unfortunately, fans still have quite some time to wait before they can get their hands on the album. Although there is no exact release date yet, Healy said to expect the album in 2018.
