Later this month The 1975 will release new album Being Funny In A Foreign Language. In interviews the band's always engaging frontman Matty Healy has been bigging this record up as their most romantic and earnest to date, telling the New York Times: “Love, loss, addiction. That’s what I always do. Every other record has been a bit like, ‘Love! And me! And this! And that!’ I think Being Funny is the first time where I’m a bit like, ‘OK, right, love. Let’s do love.'”
The band's promotional duties brought them to BBC Radio 1 earlier today and it seems that writing about love remains on the band's mind as they picked their mandatory cover version. Delving back to 1992 they landed on Take That's "A Million Love Songs," a smash hit for the British boyband and written by Gary Barlow about trying to write the perfect love song. That level of meta-text ("A million love songs later. And here I am trying to tell you that I care") unsurprisingly appeals to Healy, as presumably do the heart-on-sleeve nature of the words.
