English pop/rock/indie outfit  The 1975 has shared another song from Being Funny in a Foreign Language, the group’s anticipated new album due out on Oct. 14 via Dirty Hit.

The group has demonstrated over the years an ability to release songs exhibiting very different vibes and emotional states; thus far, we’ve heard four songs from the new album, and each hits in its own way.

Take the latest, “All I Need to Hear,” a ballad pairing vocalist Matty Healy to tender piano, strings and acoustic guitars:

Compare that to the previously released 1980s-inspired “I’m In Love With You”:

“Happiness” also hit that indie/pop stride quite effectively:

While “Part of the Band,” the album’s introductory statement, struck a different tone:

Being Funny in a Foreign Language will be the 1975’s first since 2020’s captivatingly daring album, Notes on a Conditional Form.

The record is credited to writers Healy and George Daniel, and was recorded at Real World Studios in Wiltshire, U.K. and Electric Lady Studios in New York.

Here’s its track listing:

  1. The 1975
  2. Happiness
  3. Looking For Somebody (To Love)
  4. Part Of The Band
  5. Oh Caroline
  6. I’m In Love With You
  7. All I Need To Hear
  8. Wintering
  9. Human Too
  10. About You
  11. When We Are Together

The excitement around 2020’s Notes on a Conditional Form was tempered by the COVID-19 pandemic during which it was released, as it limited the 1975’s ability to get out on the road and tour the record around the world. They were on track for a U.S. arena tour with Phoebe Bridgers as support, but the tour was scrapped due to pandemic uncertainty. Shortly thereafter, Bridgers exploded in popularity, making such a tour seem impossible now that she is headlining big venues of her own (though Healy made an appearance at one of Bridgers’ triumphant Los Angeles gigs in October of 2021).

As a result, this new album cycle presents a chance for the group to make up for lost time — which it will, on a North American tour that is already sold out in multiple markets:
