The 1975 have been counting down to the new single on their website and posting cryptic messages on their social media channels, offering fans a glimpse of what is to come.

The 1975 have a history of teasing across their social media, having led some fans to believe they were calling it quits when they posted cryptic messages and then shut down their accounts back in June. The accounts were brought back the following evening, complete with rebranded pink imagery and the announcement of a new tour.

As ‘Love Me’ received its first play, the band posted the track’s lyrics on twitter. Earlier in the day, they also posted a short essay detailing their thoughts on art and being in a band. “Too many artists care what others think – we are for the ‘COMMUNITY'” it reads. “I would die for this, as pretentious or over reaching as that may sound. I fucking would. This is for the fans.”
