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’.

What's Your First Line Going To Be? The Futureheads Discuss Their Long-Awaited Return With 'Powers'
Tue 27 Aug 2019
The stars of mid-2000s indie discos are frozen in time in the memories of a lot of people—their music might as well be an advert for sticky floors and test tube shots. And that’s where the Futureheads, who had a couple of songs that were students’ union staples, might still reside in the eyes of some.
Ezra Furman - Twelve Nudes (Album Review)
Wed 04 Sep 2019
Seeking to stay true to a punk aesthetic, Ezra Furman and band recorded ‘Twelve Nudes’ at a rapid pace with creative help from booze and cigarettes. And it shows. It doesn’t deliver the production finesse of 2018’s ‘Transangelic Exodus’, but that’s kind of the point.

Fri 06 Sep 2019
Photo: Travis Shinn If you’ve waited a long time for something, you might as well spend a long time with it once it finally arrives, right? Tool’s return, after a 13 year absence that amounted to torture for their committed following, is a slow moving, dense work defined by its patient approach. Its steadfast insistence on hitting its marks in its own time, and skipping zero pages in the band’s playbook, will delight diehards.
The Futureheads - Powers (Album Review)
Mon 02 Sep 2019
‘Powers’ is the Futureheads’ sixth studio album and the first since the band went on hiatus following the lukewarm reception to their excellent a capella offering ‘Rant!’ in 2013. It is a return to the thrashy post punk sound that characterised their early success, and while familiar problems arise with several songs, it is a record of intricate and innovative arrangements that should place them firmly back on the European festival circuit next year.
