The third ‘Notes’ single is coming…

The 1975 have confirmed that their new single ‘Frail State Of Mind’ will be arriving later this week.

Teasing the upcoming release over the weekend, the Manchester band’s frontman Matty Healy posted an image on Instagram with the caption “// 5 D A Y S // L O V E.”

The design included a large number five, an abbreviation of the title of their upcoming album, and in smaller print the band’s name, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’, ‘MUSIC FOR CARS’, which is the name of the era Healy says both the new album and the band’s previous album, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’, belong to, and a serial number: DH00662.

In a follow-up post yesterday (October 21), Healy revealed that the third ‘Notes…’ cut – due to arrive this Thursday (October 24) – will be ‘Frail State Of Mind’. It follows on from ‘People‘ and ‘The 1975’.

A pre-order page for the band’s fourth LP states that the song’s duration is 3 minutes and 54 seconds, and appears as its fourth track.

In a previous interview with DazedHealy revealed that the single is an exploration of social anxiety set against a UK garage backdrop. He said it’s a “UK garage, sad, Burial kind of thing about social anxiety”.

Last month, The 1975 announced an arena tour of UK and Ireland in 2020 to support their forthcoming album, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’. The Manchester group are expected to hit the road in February, marking the record’s release day with a London show (February 21).

Meanwhile, The 1975‘s Matty Healy has praised the spirit of climate activist Greta Thunberg, hailing her “the most punk person he’s ever met”.

Thunberg has become a global figurehead of ongoing protests to fight climate change, making headlines with her rousing speech to the UN last week. The band recently teamed up with Thunberg on ‘The 1975’ – a spoken word essay about the effects of climate change and the opening track from their forthcoming album ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’. All proceeds for the track will go to environmental campaign group Extinction Rebellion.
