The 1975 Share New Single ‘Happiness’ and North American Tour Dates

5th August 2022 | Category: Concerts

The 1975 have released a new single called ‘Happiness’.

The song is the latest preview of the Manchester group’s fifth album Being Funny In A Foreign Language, which is due to arrive on October 14 via Dirty Hit. It follows on from the recent comeback track ‘Part Of The Band’.

“‘Happiness’ is like… there’s literally loads of us in the room on that track,” frontman Matty Healy told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1.

“[It] really doesn’t really have much structure. It came through like jamming, and we haven’t done that in like years. So we just wanted this record to be really like a captured moment and not be too constructed and even produced that much.”

He continued: “We did it in like a day or so, and it’s us having fun. And I think that there’s this real desire in art to see something remarkable with as little technology as possible. Do you know what I mean?”

Additionally, it’s been confirmed that The 1975 will hit the road for their ‘At Their Very Best’ North American tour in November. The tour includes a headline concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The 1975 are scheduled to make their live return this month, playing two gigs as part of Japan’s Summer Sonic Festival (August 20, 21). The dates will mark the group’s first live shows since they performed in Dublin in March 2020.

Healy recently revealed that the four-piece will return to the UK in early 2023, saying the tour would be an “intimate” experience for fans on these shores. 

“I want people to feel like they’re in a little theatre as opposed to an IMAX,” he explained.

The forthcoming record serves as the follow-up to 2020’s Notes On A Conditional Form
