Album: Music for Cars
Release Date: TBA
The 1975 announced back in 2016 that fans should expect new music in 2018. The band had the name Music for Cars locked down for most of 2017, and possibly re-confirmed their plans for this year back in July with a cryptic Instagram video showing the neon sign from their sophomore album's cover being turned off. In September, the band's manager Jamie Osborne tweeted that sessions for Music for Cars would begin that month. No songs have been released yet, but frontman Matty Healy spoke about his aspirations for his band's third album with Q last March. "If you look at third albums, OK Computer or The Queen Is Dead, that's what we need to do," he said. "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."
