After several days of online teasing, The 1975 have finally unleashed the third single off their upcoming third studio album. On Wednesday, Aug. 15, the British band debuted “TooTimeTooTimeTooTime," the latest single off their much-anticipated forthcoming record. The song made its worldwide debut on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show where it was also chosen as the day's “Hottest Record in the World.” In addition to the song’s exclusive premiere, fill-in host Phil Taggart spoke with frontman Matty Healy who gave the DJ some insight about the new track and how it's probably one of his favorite songs from the band.
“This song is about, you know, fun and relationships and life and…this is the one 1975 I like listening to when I go out for a run,” Healy admits to Taggart.
When pressed by the host about whether he thinks this may end up being the band’s biggest hit, Healy admits that he doesn’t really care as long as the fans like it.
“I don’t really know what constitutes a hit. I just know this is the song that I objectively listen to not necessarily as a ’75 song,” the singer explains.
“It’s just something that kind of makes me really happy and the video makes me the happiest. That’s my only metric as to why I would think it would be kind of…I don’t really care if it’s a hit. I just want the fans to hear it. ”
“TooTimeTooTimeTooTime” can be streamed above while Healy’s complete interview with Taggart can be heard here.
“TooTimeTooTimeTooTime” will join previously released tracks “Love It If We Made It” and “Give Yourself a Try” on A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships; the first of two upcoming albums from the band.
A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships is due out sometime in October while Notes On A Conditional Form —the second album— will reportedly see a release time frame of early 2019. Both records will be released through the group’s longtime home of Dirty Hits / Interscope Records.
A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships will be the direct follow-up to the band’s hit 2016 record, I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it.
