    The 1975 have shared another sample of their upcoming album, Being Funny in a Foreign Language, ahead of its October 14th release. Entitled “Happiness,” the song is a shimmering, certified dance-floor jam that evokes the adrenaline rush of falling in love. Watch the song’s music video below. UPDATE: The 1975 have also mapped out a North American tour kicking off in November (get tickets here).

    On “Happiness,” The 1975 frontman Matty Healy’s pop star vocals depict the lengths to which he’d go just for the attention of his love interest: “Oh, oh, I would go blind just to see you/ I’d go too far just to have you near.” Near the end of the track, Healy repeats “I’ll never love again,” a sentiment that carries both the relief of having found the one and the fear of losing it all.

    Beginning in November, The 1975 will launch “At Their Very Best,” a 23-date North American tour that includes high-profile stops at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Los Angeles’ Kia Forum, and Mexico City’s Corona Capital Festival. A fan ticket pre-sale is set for Monday, August 8th, followed by a Live Nation pre-sale on Tuesday, August 9th (use code APPLAUSE), and finally, a public on-sale goes down Friday, August 12th via Ticketmaster.

    Being Funny in a Foreign Language is the follow-up to The 1975’s 2020 album Notes on a Conditional Form. The band initially previewed the album by sharing “Part of the Band,” which features uncredited vocals from Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner.

    In 2021, Healy and drummer George Daniel collaborated with beabadoobee on her EP Our Extended Play, and Healy made a surprise appearance onstage at a Phoebe Bridgers show in Los Angeles.
