The release of the live record was previously teased by the band’s manager Jamie Oborne, who took to Twitter today in November to hint that something was on the way.

Previously, the band’s frontman Matty Healy had promised new material from the band in 2017, as well as a ‘new vinyl this year.

“So there is not going to be EP in 2017. EP will be 2018. BUT you will get something that I personally love”, Oborne wrote on Twitter,

“Sorry but that’s all I can say right now. Oh, MFC is already sounding amazing. It will be worth the wait.  you guys. X”

Meanwhile, it’s believed that The 1975 are currently hard at work finishing their third album, which will be called ‘Music For Cars’.

Although an official release date for the record is yet to be confirmed, Matty Healy has constantly stated on Twitter that it will be released on June 1 next year.

Explaining the title, he previously told NME: “‘Music For Cars’ was an EP named for our love for Brian Eno.

“We’re using it as the album title now because of how meta and self-referential everything has become in the world of The 1975, and ‘Music For Cars’ was always my favourite title of everything we’d ever done, so it kinda made sense to wrap it up that way.”
