In a series of tweets, Matty Healy confirmed a debut album separate from the 1975 is in the works. He described the project, known as ‘Drive Like I Do’, as a separate entity from the 1975.


In that barrage of tweets came another that confirmed what fans have been fearing, and that is that Music For Cars might be the end of the 1975.

Drive Like I Do came before the 1975 released their debut album under the guise of the latter name. What exactly is going on here, I don’t know. Why put an end to the 1975 after a ‘trilogy’ of albums, only if they are going to stick together to make more music, just under a different name? Oh well. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens, just until spring of the coming years….


And while I jumped to a conclusion regarding that cryptic tweet in which Healy said Music For Cars will be the end of an era, there are no immediate plans to ditch the 1975. In an interview with NME, he describes that it will be the “end of an era”: “It’s always been called that and we were always going to do a trilogy of records. I’m not saying that after this record it’s the end of The 1975 but it’s definitely the end of an era.”
