"The Birthday Party" is a soothing, almost country-tinged track from the group thanks to the banjo and pedal steel guitar.

The 1975's new single follows on from previous Notes On A Conditional Form tracks "Me & You Together Song", "The 1975", "People", and "Frail State of Mind".

Notes On A Conditional Form will be The 1975's follow up to 2018's A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.

Last week, vocalist Matty Healy pledged to only play festivals that are committed to a gender-balanced lineup.

"The Birthday Party" is out now. The 1975's Notes On A Conditional Form album will land 24 April, and is available to pre-order now. They play London's O2 Arena from 21-22 February. Find out more.
