The 1975 have released new single ‘Part Of The Band’, the first track from their new album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’, which will be released later this year.

“She was part of the airforce / I was part of the band / I always used to bust into her hand”, sings vocalist Matt Healy on the track. “In my imagination I was living my best life / Living with my parents / Way before the paying penance and verbal propellants / And my cancellations”.

Co-produced by Jack Antonoff, the track also features some vocal contributions from Michelle Zauner, aka Japanese Breakfast, who tweeted as the track was released: “Got to sing a little on this for my fave band”.

‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’ – the follow-up to 2020’s ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ – is set for release on 14 Oct.
