The 1975 have shared another preview of their forthcoming album Being Funny in a Foreign Language. This one’s called ‘All I Need To Hear’, and it follows the previously released singles ‘I’m in Love With You’, ‘Happiness’, and ‘Part of the Band’. Check out its Samuel Bradley-directed video below.
Speaking about the new song in an interview with Zane Lowe, The 1975’s Matty Healy said:
What I’ve struggled is like this song, what does it say? It’s like I don’t need music in my ears, I don’t need the crowds and the cheers. Just tell me you love me. That’s all that I need to hear. With “All I Need To Hear”, I don’t know what the barometers are. Some of the barometer are how much it makes you dance or how memorable. There’s something that makes the song stick around. With “All I Need To Hear”, it was one of those songs that I realized quite quickly that “I Couldn’t Be More in Love”, on A Brief Inquiry… and “All I Need To Hear” I think are songs that could be performed better than I can perform them. A lot of my songs require me to perform them, but I think that I’d love to hear Joe Cocker, not that we could have that, but it feels like one of those songs where it’s like I’ve stepped out of the Mattyness of everything. And it’s something that Adele could sing that song, it would make total sense, and she wouldn’t have to talk about jacking off or what the usual subject matter is.
Being Funny in a Foreign Language is slated for release on October 21 via Dirty Hit.
