The Manchester group are due to release the track tomorrow (July 7) as the first preview of their forthcoming fifth studio album, ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’.

Now, The 1975 have taken to social media to share a new 13-minute portion of the single. It’s accompanied by a brief clip of Healy standing atop an old-fashioned car as he looks out towards the ocean.

This latest teaser includes more orchestral elements of the song – you can watch it now here:

Healy recently made a rare return to Reddit where he gave fans some more information on ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’, which will follow 2020’s ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’.

The album will also include the songs ‘Looking For Somebody (To Love)’, ‘I’m In Love With You’, ‘Wintering’ and ‘When We Are Together’ – see the full tracklist here. A release date is not yet known.

Back in August 2021, Matty Healy poked fun at the prospect of “making another ‘classic record'”.
