As we get closer to the release date of The 1975's fourth album Notes on a Conditional Form, the band is gifting us with another taste of what to expect from the upcoming project.
On Thursday (October 24), they released "Frail State of Mind," a song about anxiety that frontman Matty Healy explains "goes from a real sadness to a real euphoria."
“We were always reaching for the stars creatively. So there’s that but it was almost like we kind of just closed the door on the world a little bit and just went into this record," he explained in a recent interview. "So I think there was like a fragility to us because maybe we were a little bit frightened or something. And I think that, well I mean the song’s called ‘Frail State of Mind,’ it’s about anxiety. But I think there’s like a real, it’s quite somber. It’s kind of in the middle. Like it kind of blends between euphoria and-UK Garage and yeah, it goes from a real sadness to a real euphoria.”
The song follows the in-your-face lead single "People" and opening track, which features teenage activist Greta Thunberg. Notes on a Conditional Form is slated for a February 21, 2020 release. Listen to "Frail State of Mind" below.
