The 1975 today release ‘Happiness’ - the second track from their highly anticipated forthcoming album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’.

You can watch the video, directed by Samuel Bradley, BELOW.

‘Happiness’ follows remarkable comeback single ‘Part Of The Band’, which Pitchfork lauded as “the kind of grand, playful pop song that only this band could pull off” and found NME praising the “fearlessness that sees The 1975 unafraid to rip up their own rule book”.

Both tracks will feature on ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’, the band’s fifth studio album, released Friday 14th October via Dirty Hit and available to pre-order now at

In support of ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’, the band have also announced details of their forthcoming North American tour; The 1975 ‘At Their Very Best’.

The newly announced tour dates will see the band play across North America throughout November and December , including shows at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden and The Kia Forum in Los Angeles. Tickets are available via fan presale from Monday 8th August, with tickets available for general sale on Friday 12th August. You can find more information HERE.

Formed in Manchester in 2002, The 1975 have established themselves as one of the defining bands of their generation with their distinctive aesthetic, ardent fanbase and unique sonic approach.

The band’s previous album, 2020’s ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’, became their fourth consecutive No. 1 album in the UK, landing at No. 1 in Australia too. The band were named NME’s ‘Band of the Decade’ in 2020 after being crowned ‘Best Group’ at the BRIT Awards in both 2017 & 2019. Their third studio album, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’, also won ‘Mastercard British Album of the Year’ at the 2019 ceremony.
