The 1975 News: Matty Healy “‘Our next album needs to be like ‘OK Computer’ or ‘The Queen Is Dead”

Matty Healy of The 1975 has spoken about how he wants the bands next album to be like The Smiths’ ‘The Queen Is Dead’ and Radiohead’s ‘OK Computer’

Matty Healy recently spoke about how The 1975 were coming to the end of their tour dates, and will finish up by headlining a couple of festivals.  He then said that the band would go away for a little while to make another “really great” album. This will be the bands third album and will be titled ‘Music For Cars’, it is due to be released in 2018.

The 1975 recently won NME Album Of The Year 2016 for their ‘I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It‘. This was their second studio album.

Healy recently spoke with Q Magazine and revealed his hopes for the album and that he has already written two new tracks, saying that they are ‘as good as anything on the previous album’ along with ‘lots of ambient and classical tracks’.

“If you look at third albums, ‘OK Computer’ or ‘The Queen Is Dead’, that’s what we need to do.”

Matty goes on, “I want a legacy. I want people to look back and think our records were the most important pop records that a band put out in this decade.

Meanwhile, Matty and Skepta recently hinted that they have been working together on new music.

“We tried working with each other recently but it just didn’t work out,” Healy told NME. “Just for loads of reasons – but we’re going to do something in the future.”

He continued: “We’re going to do a tune together. We want to do like a ‘West End Girls’ Pet Shop Boys [kind of thing]. Maybe start a band, just me and Skepta do a band. Well we’re talking about it, so let’s see what happens.
