Just when our day got dampened by the fact that it is Thursday when we thought it was Friday, The 1975 came and cheered us right up. First of all, they drop a new single, and then they announce the North American leg of their 2020 tour!
Ahead of their upcoming studio album Notes on a Conditional Form, ‘Me & You Together Song’ debuted as the Hottest Record in the World earlier today after performing it live on BBC Radio 1’s Future Sounds with Annie Mac.
The treble-heavy bouncy drum bop sings about being infatuated with a friend who doesn’t share the same feelings and fantasizing about what life would be like together.
Those who pre-order the new album on digital platforms will receive ‘Me & You Together Song’ plus the opening track ‘The 1975’ – which features a monologue from Greta Thunberg – and the singles ‘People’ and ‘Frail State of Mind’.
If that wasn’t exciting enough as it was, the band also announced the North American leg of their 2020 tour! The headline tour will be kicking off at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston, TX on April 27th and will include shows at The Forum in Los Angeles (May 7th), Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO (May 11th) and New York City’s Madison Square Garden (May 26th). The tour will see support from Pheobe Bridgers and Beadadoobee for most dates.
In addition to the tour, The 1975 will also be making appearances at a variety of festivals including Bonnaroo.
Want to get the best tickets? Pre-order anything from the band’s store before 10PM local time on Thursday, January 23rd in order to get a code to access the pre-sale taking place from 10 AM local time on Wednesday, January 22nd through to 10PM local time on Thursday, January 23rd. General sale will be taking place on Friday, January 24th at 9AM local time. Get those alarm clocks set!
Plus, what’s even more awesome is that one dollar from each ticket sold will go to One Tree Planted, a non-profit organization that plants trees all over the world to fight climate change, protect biodiversity, empower communities and restore our planet. Their aim is to reforest the planet, one tree at a time. So, you’re doing your bit for the planet by going to see your faves live!
