One of the most successful pop bands, The 1975, have released the next song off their new album “I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It”. This newest song, “The Sound”, comes to us after having been performed live on their winter tour.
In conjunction with their album announcement last fall, The 1975 announced a short headlining tour in both the United Kingdom and the United States that visited their favorite venues. On this tour that occurred in November and December, the band premiered the song “The Sound”. Today, the studio recording of this song was played for the public for the first time.
The 1975 have been appearing on a range of radio shows including Nick Grimshaw’s show on BBC Radio 1, as well as Beats Radio streamed on Apple Music, to release their new songs, and today’s premiere was no different. Lead singer Matty Healy spoke to Annie Mac during her Hottest Record in the World feature for the first play of the song on BBC Radio 1.
Recognized for their unique take on pop music, the 1975 have taken a distinctly 80’s pop influence on this upcoming album. Preceded by “Love Me” and “UGH!”, “The Sound” has a steady background bass drum beat that is complimented by an upbeat and whimsical, indietronica melody. The song features a beautiful choir bringing a distinct uniqueness to the single through the playful harmony on the chorus. This song blends seamlessly with the first two singles, offering a sound reminiscent of their hit single “Girls” from their self-titled first album “The 1975”.
After announcing noted festival spots at Coachella and Firefly as well as their largest headlining tour, The 1975 prepare for a massive year in 2016. The album “I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It” comes out on February 26. It is available for both physical pre-order and iTunes.
