The 1975 Team Up With Climate Change Activist Greta Thunberg For Poignant New Track

Thursday, 25 July 2019 Written by Helen Payne

The 1975 have teamed up with Greta Thunberg, a teenage climate change activist, for their latest track.

Following the pattern of opening their records with a self-titled track, The 1975 is the first taste of the indie group’s new album, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’, which is slated for release on February 21, 2020.

Thunberg takes on the important task of vocal duty, using this platform to perform a powerful speech on the climate emergency. The Swedish teenager’s striking essay, performed over ambient instrumentation by Matty Healy and band, comments that “older generations have failed”, and that “all political movements in their present form have failed”, but that “homo sapiens have not yet failed”, and that there is still time to turn things around.

The 1975 are set to headline Reading and Leeds later this month, as well as a Glasgow Summer Sessions shows, before touring further afield supporting their latest album, 2018's ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’.
