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 [More]

Long time fans of The 1975 will know that the band’s first EP was also of the same title, and Healy acknowledged that their next album will reference that and their second EP.

The 1975 released a new track, a delicate cover of Sade’s “By Your Side”, benefiting the British charity organization, War Child. War Child is an organization that offers aid and protection to children affected by war. They premiered the song on MistaJam’s BBC Radio 1 show. The slow tempo, R&B undertones, warped auto tune over Healey’s vocals, and silky synthesizers make it sound more like a Bon Iver track, further showcasing the British alt band’s ranging talent.
