The 1975's manager Jamie Oborne has revealed that the band are finally "reaching the finish line" with their new album Notes On A Conditional Form.

Ahead of the group releasing new single "Me & You Together Song" on Thursday (16 January), The 1975's manager has given an update on their highly-anticipated Notes On A Conditional Form album.

Speaking to NME, Dirty Hit's Jamie Oborne says, "We’re just in the final stages of it at the moment. I lose track of time a little bit. It’s really consumed our lives. It’s been really difficult to make these two albums and allow them to move creatively forward in the way that Matthew [Healy, frontman] and George [Daniel, drummer] demand whilst promoting them and touring."

He adds, "It’s only now that we’re coming to the end of the process of making the two records that I realise how much of a relief it is to be reaching the finish line. It’s been the most amazing but intense two years of my life. I don’t know how we’ve managed to do it. It’s been such a team effort to get this far and even be able to function as humans."

Oborne also says that their forthcoming album is "progressive while also their most 1975-sounding record."

Notes On A Conditional Form - The 1975's fourth album - will follow their 2018 LP A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.

So far they've shared three tracks from the record - "The 1975", "People", and "Frail State of Mind".

The 1975's new single "Me & You Together Song" lands on Thursday (16 January) at 7pm GMT. Their Notes On A Conditional Form album will land 21 February, and is available to pre-order now. They play London's O2 Arena from 21-22 February. Find out more.
