There’s bit a lot of speculation going on as to what title the 1975’s third album will have and when it will be released. The first details have finally arrived: the new album will be entitled Music for Cars. As for the release date, frontman Matt Healy did not reveal an exact date yet but confirmed during his Beats 1 Radio interview that Music for Cars will come out in 2018.
Fans have been puzzled for a while, what The 1975 had in mind, when Healy recenytly 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.” Then the frontman deleted the tweet, leaving fans to wonder if the album plans had suddenly changed.
The new effort was officially announced during the singer’s interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio on Thursday. Music for Cars is the title the band previously used as the name of their third EP, which came out in March 2013 and featured tracks ‘Anobrain,’ ‘Chocolate,’ ‘HNSCC,’ ‘Head.Cars.Bending’ and ‘Me.’ Fans are rubbing their hands wondering what the upcoming full-length has in store.
Healy also said in the interview that the upcoming 2018 record marks “an end of an era” for the band:
“Music for Cars has always been called that, and we were always gonna do a trilogy of records,” he said. “And I’m not saying that after this album it’s the end of the 1975, but it’s definitely the end of an era.”
Meanwhile, The 1975 are currently on the road with a massive North American tour, which is already sold-out for most of the dates. The highlight of this huge tour is the night at Madison Square Garden. Check all the tour dates below.
