It looks like The 1975 could finally drop their ‘She’s American’ video, two years after it was initially set to debut.
The song, taken from the band’s 2016 album ‘I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It’, was expected to be released as a single on Christmas Day two years ago.
However, after numerous teaser clips, the video never showed up. When asked about it’s release on Twitter, the band’s manager Jamie Oborne replied: “How long? I don’t think we’re gonna release it sorry x”
Visual snippets were leaked in 2016, showing Matty Healy dancing with a group of girls holding machine guns in front of a video screen.
Now Healy is teasing fans once again. Tweeting the American flag emoji earlier today (December 22), he then followed it up with another clip, seemingly from the original video.
The clip sees Healy following choreography along to the song. You can see the clip below.

Fans were quick to respond, with one writing: “2 years late is okie dokie”. Another wrote, “YOU’RE FINALLY RELEASING THE MV ???? I’M SHOOK,” while another added: “Matty we need answers what r u doing to us is the shes american video coming back ahhhhhh”.
Meanwhile, Healy has revealed that he’d like to collaborate with Ariana Grande. The Manchester band are known to be fans of Grande, and last month received the thumbs-up from the singer after covering ‘Thank U, Next’ in the BBC Live Lounge.
Speaking to the Times of India, Healy said of the song: “”It’s just the best song out at this time. It is also the biggest song of the moment.”
When asked if a potential collaboration was on the cards, Healy replied: “Yeah, I would love to. She has such an amazing voice.”
