The 1975's Matty Healy has provided another update on their Drive Like I Do project, and says it's coming out "pretty soon".

In December 2020 The 1975's Matty Healy launched a new Instagram account for Drive Like I Do, which is what The 1975 were called before they became The 1975.

After sharing an image of Drive Like I Do performing in Newcastle back in 2005 in December, one fan commented: "we want a new DLID record :(." Healy simply responded, "ok".

Last month Drive Like I Do uploaded a captionless video that plays a few seconds of lo-fi guitar over a picture of a field from outside the gate, hinting that new music might be on the way.

Over the weekend Healy shared an update via his personal Instagram. He shared a selfie and wrote, "Finishing DLID today", and followed it up with another image of a drum kit, writing, "It's not a full album you guys r crazy."

Healy provided another update last night (16 February) via his Instagram, which saw him reveal that there'll be old music, as well as "a little bit of new music". He added, "I’m not gonna make a fanfare about it. It’s not coming out today, but it’s coming out pretty soon. That’ll be a nice little thing. There’s loads of things going on, coming out, so I’m excited."

Earlier this month No Rome revealed he has an upcoming song collaboration with The 1975 and Charli XCX.

There's currently no specific date as to when Drive Like I Do will release new music. Last month The 1975 confirmed that they're "currently making a new album".
