Pop-rock superstars The 1975‘s fourth LP ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ has been eagerly awaited for a while, and despite initially being just a month away fans will need to wait a little longer.
Initially confirmed in a recent Q&A live stream with frontman Matt Healy, the album has now been pushed back from its planned release date of February 21st 2020 to the revised date of April 24th 2020.
Thankfully the folks over at Dork captured and recorded the live stream, in which Healy says that a further four singles are yet to come ahead of its release, and states the following about its delay.
“It takes like three months or something to physically make a record on vinyl, so it comes out on the 24th of April, I think, and… sorry if that’s, like, annoying or whatever, it’s just I’m really proud of it and we love it, and, for the sake of a couple of months, in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t really make any difference.”
