The 1975 returns with the fifth song from their anticipated fourth studio project Notes on a Conditional Form in “The Birthday Party.” The English pop-rock outfit has been steadily pushing their first album since 2018’s A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships with their last release “Me & You Together Song” harkening back to high school house parties and 90s nostalgia. With “Birthday Party,” lead vocalist and guitarist Matthew Healy and company slow things down and continue the theme of social interactions into one’s early to mid 20’s. The mellow track initially debuted on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music Beats1 radio show New Music Daily.

“Hello, there’s a place I’ve been going/ There’s a place I’ve been going/ Now I’m clean, it would seem/ Let’s go somewhere I’ll be seen/ As sad as it seems/ I seen Greg and he was like/ “I seen your friends at the birthday party/ They were kinda f*cked up before it even started/ They were gonna go to the Pinegrove show/ They didn’t know about all the weird stuff/ So they just left it” (So they just left it)/ I was wasted (I was wasted)/ And cold, minding my business,” Healy sings, recalling his past struggles with addiction.

“There’s a song called “The Birthday Party” that’s just about the interesting social minutiae of house parties,” Matthew Healy told Dazed earlier this year. “I was gonna do a song that was like, ‘What it was like to be at a house party at 20, 25, and 29’. But then I realized I don’t need to do it, I just need to do what it’s like now, because my career has been what it’s been like to be at a house party at 20, 25, and 29. I think (the album will) be similar in the way that Brief Inquiry can be quite deconstructed – there’s big, bombastic elements to it, but it’s a very stripped, pure version of The 1975.”

Earlier this year, Healy declared that The 1975 won’t perform at music festivals that couldn’t guarantee a 50-50 gender split. Notes on a Conditional Form is set to release April 24 via Dirty Hit, Polydor Records and Interscope Records. In more music news, Yves Tumor announced a new project Heaven To A Tortured Mind with a new single “Gospel For A New Century.”
