The 1975 have "one more EP" on the way

06 November 2017, 11:33 | Written by Laurence Day

The 1975's Matty Healy seems to have announced a new EP, their fifth in total and first since 2013's IV.

The band are currently working on third - and "final" - album Music For Cars, but now it looks like we'll get something new and exciting before that arrives.

As some eagle-eared fans might notice, the phrase 'what a shame' is pretty common in The 1975's songs - it's mentioned (at least) during "Love Me", "The Ballad Of Me And My Brain", and "Paris".

Is the EP done already? Maybe - Healy has shared a pic of himself working in a studio.

Healy told us last May that they were already working on the next record, and has since said that the band plans to release new music in the near future.

The 1975's Mercury-nominated second record - I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It - was released last year.
