Manchester-based band The 1975 have delivered their fourth studio album, Notes on a Conditional Form. Arriving via Dirty Hit and Polydor Records, the album follows 2018’s A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.

Running for 22 tracks that span 80 minutes in length, the new full-length is as maximalist as any of the band’s previously released albums. Though the project was initially set to be a companion project to their 2018 LP, the album ended up taking 19 months to complete across 15 studios in four countries. The result is something that is almost too eclectic. Everything from Radiohead-styled inflections and energetic industrial rock to the use of post-dubstep and country-friendly balladry is included in the album.

Like most The 1975 records, it’s bound to be polarizing. While many fans will admire the sheer breadth of sounds showcased and motifs emphasized on Notes on a Conditional Form, many will continue to gravel about the band’s lack of focus. Regardless, however, band frontman Matty Healy seems to be aware of his firebrand status, delivering yet another set of tracks that keep you wondering “what’s next?”

Stream The 1975’s Notes on a Conditional Form below. The band has also shared a new music video for Healy’s ode to his bandmates titled “Guys” which can also be viewed below.
