No Rome has shared a new song called ‘Do It Again’, taken from the rising artist’s upcoming new EP.
The Philippine-based artist signed to Dirty Hit – the same label as The 1975. Before signing with the label, he released two EPs – ‘Fantasy’ and ‘Hurry Home & Rest’ – in 2013 and 2015 respectively.
No Rome has now shared the first track from his first proper release for Dirty Hit, titled ‘Do It Again’. Listen to the song below.
‘Do It Again’ is taken from the EP ‘RIP Indo Hisashi’, which was co-produced by The 1975’s Matty Healy and George Daniel. One track on the record, ‘Narcissist’, is credited as featuring the band.

Healy previously confirmed the trio had been working together in a tweet, writing: “NO ROME AND ME AND GEORGE MADE A RECORD ITS WILD OMG SO GOOD”. In a new Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe, he discussed the project further, saying: “It’s so exciting to be working with him. I just fell in love with it completely. I’d never seen him, I didn’t know who he was or anything. I flew him over to the UK because I was just too excited, and when I get that excited then I know that I’ve got to do it. We moved it over and signed him to Dirty Hit, and the rest was history.”
“Rome kind of became a bit of a muse of mine once I was working on his stuff and then his ideas were on parallel with everything that me and George were doing, so I just wanted that energy in the studio.”

He added: “We’ve been making the record for six months together so he’s just been there working away. It’s been so good. I’ve been trying to do the Kanye thing of, like, ‘Give me all your best beats.'”
Healy has also confirmed No Rome will support The 1975 on tour when the band head back out on the road.
