The 1975 have revealed that they plan to start releasing new songs from August.

Originally, The 1975 were planning to release their first single of Notes On A Conditional Form at the end of May. Earlier this month, Dirty Hit's Jamie Oborne revealed that the single had been pushed back.

According to Dork, Matty Healy revealed to BBC Radio 1, "One of the reasons that I wanted to do two records is because we’re in this real-time expression culture phase. The way that people are talking to their audience and people are consuming music is so different, so I wasn’t afraid to be like, "I’ve changed my mind", or "I think it’s coming out in May", "Actually I haven’t even finished it yet". The main decision I’ve made is that I couldn’t decide whether to put music out first, or just drop a record. I’ve now decided that I do want to put music out first, so starting in August we’re going to start putting songs out."

Healy added, "I think that because the traditional media channels are so different now, the discovery phase a lot of the time is in people’s phones and that that provokes so much change. We’re in quite a deconstructed phase. I’ve done very hyper-stylised stuff my whole life, even to the way we put stuff out you know, on a certain day, but now I’ve embraced the freeform modern mania. You see artists like Billie Eilish, and it’s pretty inspiring."

Notes On A Conditional Form will follow on from the group's A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships record that arrived last year.

The 1975 are currently touring North America before heading to Spain for Mad Cool festival in July. Find their full touring plans.
