Just last week we were informing you that The 1975 label Dirty Hit was looking for couples to be in a music video for a yet-unknown single. We can now be pretty sure the song in question was a sweet new single ‘Me & You Together Song’, released today.

The 1975 announced the single last week, and since couples were being invited to star in the video, the song was obviously going to have some romantic lyrics and a life-asserting message.

The lyrics are conventional, on one hand, with a man who “had a dream where we had kids. You would cook, I’d do the nappies”. But some of them are offbeat rhymes that are very nicely put:

“I’ve been in love with her for ages
And I can’t seem to get it right
I fell in love with her in stages, my whole life”

See the full lyrics of the song below. The track premiered on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record and then released to streaming platforms around the world.

‘Me & You Together Song’ will land on the new album Notes On A Conditional Form. The album was planned for release on February 21 but had to be pushed back to April 24 because “it isn’t quite ready yet”, reports Alternative Press. Get your album copy at this location.

‘Me & You Together Song’ Lyrics:

 I can’t remember when we met because she didn’t have a top on
I improvised a little bit she said my references were ‘spot on’
 “Can I take you for a drink?”
She said “Oh god I’ll have to think – because we’re mates…it doesn’t feel right?!”
And I said “It’s cool” and “I was messin”
But it’s true
Yeah it’s you, you’re the one who makes me feel right
 I’ve been in love with her for ages and I can’t seem to get it right
I fell in love with her in stages, my whole life
 I had a dream where we had kids. You would cook, I’d do the nappies
We went to winter wonderland and it was shit but we were happy
I’m sorry that I’m kinda queer it’s not as weird as it appears 
Sometimes my brain just doesn’t stop me
Oh it’s ok, lots of people think I’m gay 
And we’re friends, so it’s cool, why would it not be?
 I’ve been in love with her for ages and I can’t seem to get it right
I’ve been in love with her in stages, my whole life
There’s been no way for me to say that I’ve felt a certain way for ages
Oh I think our story needs more pages
Cos I’ve been in love with her for ages
