FAME RECOMMENDS: ‘THE 1975’The 1975 share the full stream of their highly anticipated fantastic self-titled debut album (ONE OF BEST ALBUM OF THE YEAR 2013), released September 2nd on Dirty Hit/Polydor:
The Manchester art-pop quartet – (Matthew Healy (vocals/guitar), Adam Hann (guitar), George Daniel (drums) and Ross MacDonald (bass) – say: “This album is the soundtrack to our formative years. The culmination of our adolescence and the cornerstone of our material thus far. That’s exactly what it is. I held the album in my hands for the first time yesterday.”“To physically hold something that you have emotionally and creatively invested so much in is a very rewarding and humbling feeling – but it’s also twinned with a level of uncertainty and fear of exposure. I dunno exactly how I feel about releasing this album, the fact that it’s such a personal statement and creation hinders me from having an objective opinion.
All I know is that it’s an uncompromising and honest depiction of who we are and what we’re about and I’m very proud that we’ve had the opportunity to make an album like that.”
