The 1975 Premieres New Song “Love It If We Made It” on Apple Beats 1
- British rock band The 1975 unveiled a new song “Love It If We Made It” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show.
The track is taken from their upcoming third album "A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships", which is set to be released in October.
It was written by Ross MacDonald, Adam Hann, George Daniel and Matthew Healy.
The band plans to release two albums between 2018 and 2019. "A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships" is one of them, another one is entitled "Notes on a Conditional Form".
Frontman Matthew Healy told Zane Lowe about the song, “It’s an interesting one because there’s not a lot of context – and a lot of the things that I say in that are kind of direct quotes of people or they’re headlines that I’ve read… [the chorus] is met hopefully, with a genuine positivity.”
Also the new album features "Rest In Peace Lil Peep", in which the band pays tribute to Lil Peep, who died last November at the age of 21.
"I’m saying Rest In Peace Lil Peep. He is very on the nose regardless of what you think of them as artists or people. With XXX and with Lil Peep. The thing that was happening in that movement regardless of what you think of it musically I felt like it was the closest thing that this generation has to a kind of Punk. It definitely felt important, whatever it is. And those two people are dead now just like that. They’re just dead. And I’m saying Rest In Peace Lil Peep. If you want to go and talk about big Pharma and pharmaceutical companies and overprescription of drugs. Yeah of course … of course that’s definitely played a part in it but that’s not what I’m saying. I’m saying that other points in the song. I’m saying lot of things … I’m saying a lot of individual things but the fact is is that all of these things nuclear they’re radioactive. It’s probably the best place to put it is in a song because you can let it finish and go … OK well I can’t react to a song so I’ll just listen to it again and then see if I get the same reaction is as opposed to like it’s an opinion on Twitter where you can go “hey, fuck you” we will never. It’s not opinionated. It provides what is happening. You know I mean? There’s a couple of dry bits of humor in regards to wordplay but as I think of all of those songs …"
