The 1975 Announce New Album, Share New Song “Give Yourself a Try”: Listen

The 1975 have shared a new song called “Give Yourself a Try.” It’s the first single from their upcoming album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. The track premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. Listen to the song and find its lyrics and artwork below.

During the band’s appearance on the program, Matty Healy revealed the new album is due out in October, with a follow-up—titled Notes on a Conditional Form—planned for May 2019. “Give Yourself a Try” marks the 1975’s first original song since 2016’s I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it. Last year, they shared a cover of Sade’s “By Your Side” and a live album (which was recorded at a December 2016 show).

UK rock band the 1975 first teased the follow-up to 2016’s I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it over a year ago, and earlier this month they launched a countdown clock.

Today, they went on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show to debut their new single “Give Yourself A Try,” and while they were there the band revealed their bold plans for the next year. They say they’ll be releasing two albums in the next 12 months — the first, called A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, is due out in October, and another will be released in May 2019. In a separate interview, Healy told Zane Lowe the second album will be called Notes On A Conditional Form.

“It’s not a double album because that would be prog and annoying and I don’t like double albums because I think they’re self-serving,” Matt Healy said during the interview. (The previously teased Music For Cars title seems to have been left behind: “That’s a perfect example of the fact that I change my mind all the time,” he said.)

The album is apparently still not finished, but “Give Yourself A Try” is done, and Healy said that it exemplifies “a tension and an anxiety that’s really present in this record.”

“Won’t you give yourself a try?” Matt Healy sings in the chorus on top of a squealing guitar line. He dives into some (presumably) self-reflection in the second half: “What would you say to your younger self? Growing a beard’s quite hard and whiskey never starts to taste nice/ And you’ll make a lot of money and it’s funny ‘cus you’ll move somewhere sunny and get addicted to drugs/ And spend obscene amounts on **** seeds and beans online.”

Didn't like the lead single, however I'm hooked on "Love It If We Made It"

Their titles are always so pretentious. Very panic at the disco.
Most listened to albums at the moment:
Christina Aguilera - Liberation
Lily Allen - No Shame
Kali Uchis - Isolation

Gonna listen to this now that it’s officially out. Response seems to be overwhelmingly positive so far, 8.5 from Pitchfork :o

Why aren't there more songs like It's Not Living (If It's Not With You) on this? I browsed hoping to find more like that but was disappointed. That's the best song by some margin.

Album is very good. Definitely their best and most ambitious. My favourites are I Always Wanna Die (Sometimes), Sincerity Is Scary, It’s Not Living & Give Yourself A Try but honestly the whole album is very strong. The Man Who Married A Robot is both funny and sad
