The 1975 frontman Matty Healy has taken up the reins as director once again, teaming up with Just Banco for an upcoming music video.
In February, it was announced that the Manchester rapper had signed to Dirty Hit, home of The 1975, with the band’s manager/label founder Jamie Oborne recently tweeting that a new single from the artist will be released in May.

Fans have been speculating whether The 1975 could be set to release new music in the coming days.
At the weekend (April 21), a fan tweeted a picture of a lightning bolt racing across a pink sunset sky that emulated the band’s neon artwork for their 2016 second album, ‘I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It’.
She tagged Jamie Oborne – the band’s manager, and founder of their label Dirty Hit – in the tweet, which said: ‘Evening, the iliwys era is still here’, and this morning he replied saying: ‘Yes for a few more days…’.
Frontman Matty Healy has maintained that their third album is set to drop in June, with manager Jamie Oborne telling followers last month that new music was coming “really soon”.
The band have spent much of the last year or so at work on their hotly-anticipated third album ‘Music For Cars’.
Explaining the title, Healy 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.”
