Matty Healy reveals that The 1975's forthcoming album Notes On A Conditional Form will focus on mental health and domesticity.

It's only been a minute since The 1975's long-awaited third album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships arrived, and already frontman Healy has given NME some teasers for their next album, Notes On A Conditional Form.

Healy confirms that their new album will delve into mental health, domesticity, and will be "very homely". Healy states, "We created A Brief Inquiry in the domestic environment that this next record is about. There isn’t a "Love It If We Made It" yet. There isn’t anything like that.”

The 1975's frontman also discloses that Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska record played a huge part in Notes On A Conditional Form, “On this record you can hear that at times I want to make my Nebraska [Bruce Springsteen’s sparsest album] or I want to make my Immunity by Jon Hopkins. I’d like it to be a moment-in-time record like a Nebraska.”

Healy and co are already appearing to be favourites among the global festival circuit next summer, having already been confirmed to play Super Bock Super Rock, Sziget, Mad Cool, FIB Benicàssim, and Reading & Leeds.

A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships is out now. Notes On A Condtional Form is expected to land in 2019, before their performance at Reading and Leeds. Find their full tour plans.
