The 1975 have released a new lyric video for ‘I Like America and America Likes Me’ from their latest album, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’.
Posting the video on Twitter, the release comes hours before the band are set to appear on The Graham Norton Show.

Meanwhile, the band recently revealed some of the influences behind their next album ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’, which they believe will be more British-sounding than their current release.
The band are recording their next album in London whereas parts of ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ were recorded in Los Angeles. The new album – due for release this summer – has a narrative woven throughout its songs, according to singer Matty Healy.
Healy told Q the new album has a style similar to The Streets and Burial, saying: “It’s really deconstructed. There’s some quippy lyrical bits that will make up a narrative. I don’t want to compare ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ and this too much, because they are two completely different times.”
Healy added The 1975 were determined not to save any good songs over from ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ while they were recording the album, even though it would have given them a head start for ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’. He said: “It was like ‘We can’t limit our record in fear of not making another good record.’”
Reviewing their latest album, NME wrote: “Healy had set out to describe his own experience, but in doing so…produced an artefact that sums up millennial life, a magpie pop masterpiece that could only be made right now and right here.”
