‘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 the1975.com.
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.
