Matty Healy reveals influence behind band The 1975's next album

Matty Healy has revealed that being in England has influenced the 1975's next album. 

The 29-year-old frontman says the hugely successful British band have started recording their upcoming album Notes On A Conditional Form in London, and thinks it will be more English-sounding than their last project, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, which was partially recorded in Los Angeles.

He admits the difference in style between the two records is because they are in England.

The synth-pop group - which consists of Matty, Adam Hann, Ross MacDonald and George Daniel - are including a "narrative" in their latest record and Healy previously confessed that his latest two projects are not comparable. 

He said: "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 went on to explain that they didn't save any tracks from A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships to use in the new album. He said: "It was like 'We can't limit our record in fear of not making another good record."

The group were recently announced as nominees for Best British Band at this year’s Brit Awards, as well as receiving a nod for British Album of the Year for A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships.

The band began touring the UK last week, which ends this month in Sheffield on January 25, before headlining Reading and Leeds Festival later this year in August.
