The band only released their Mercury-nominated second album ‘I Like It When You Fall Asleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It‘ in February this year – but now Healy has taken to Twitter that fans won’t have to wait long to hear new songs:
New The 1975 – 2017

It is unknown whether the release will take the form of an album, EP or just a single, but speaking to Billboard back in May, Healy said: “I’m always making an album. I’m always confused by the language of bands who are ‘going to make a record’ or not being able to write on tour. I think that’s just something you do – whenever, wherever.”
This week also saw Healy call out Rod Liddle for ‘sexist’ comments the journalist made against Emma Watson when speaking at the UN.
