Watch the 1975’s Poetic Performance of “I’m in Love With You” From Forthcoming LP
‘Being Funny in a Foreign Language’ is out on Friday.
The 1975 have returned to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge for a new montage of prolific pop covers. Performing from the Maida Vale Studios, the British pop-rock band delivered dynamic shows of some of its hit singles, as well as songs from its forthcoming studio album.
A standout from the live performance was The 1975’s cover of fellow British band Take That’s 1992 track “A Million Love Songs.” Frontman Matty Healy offered a poetic and tender rendition of the decades-old classic, backed by only a simple piano.
Healy and the band also served up a love song of their own, “I’m in Love With You,” off of their highly-anticipated LP Being Funny in a Foreign Language. Following 2020’s Notes on a Conditional Form, the new project is out on Friday. The band also treated listeners to another cut from the album, “All I Need to Hear.”
The session also included the upbeat throwback tracks “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)” and TooTimeTooTimeTooTime.”
This latest installment marks the fifth time The 1975 has appeared on Live Lounge. The band made its debut on the show in 2013, returning in 2014, 2016 and most recently, 2018, where they covered Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next.”
Watch The 1975’s take on “I’m in Love With You” on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. Being Funny in a Foreign Language is out on streaming services this Friday, October 14.
