Manchester based indie/pop-rock sensations The 1975 have just renewed their label contract with Dirty Hit Records through which they have committed to deliver three more albums.
The news of their contract renewal was reported through Music Week (here) in an interview with the band’s manager and label owner, Jamie Oborne.
“The 1975 extended their deal with Dirty Hit, The 1975 are with Dirty Hit for a long time. They are Dirty Hit, so of course they’d extend. The 1975 had a three-album deal and they’ve extended it for another three albums, which is amazing. Myself and the boys, we were so happy.”
Though the band’s contract ties with Dirty Hit Records directly, the label will remain in a join venture partnership with Polydor Records for The 1975‘s releases for the foreseeable future.
To date, The 1975 has been signed to Dirty Hit Records for all of their studio releases, including their three full-length records.
Their latest effort, last year’s ‘A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships’, has sales to date of 95,405 (according to the Official Charts Company). The follow-up, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’, is scheduled for release later this year.
