Earlier this year, Matty Healy told Radio X’s Dan O’Connell that A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships was going to be a brutally honest record.

“The record’s about telling the truth. I’m trying to live the truth about all those big hyperbolic things I say.

“What’s difficult sometimes is writing about the really present past, like stuff that happened a couple of months ago. It’s difficult to be objective about it, to not be emotional enough to write about it.”

The 1975’s latest track is TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME - you can watch the video here.
