The 1975 debuts ‘Happiness,’ announces ‘The 1975 – At Their Very Best’ North American tour for 2022
On Aug. 3, The 1975 released the second single from their upcoming album Being Funny in a Foreign Language. That’s “Happiness,” complete with a saxophone solo and lyrics about being happy.
In a new interview with Apple Music, frontman Healy said, “it came through, like, jamming. And we haven’t done that in years. So we just wanted this record to be like a captured moment and not be too constructed and even produced that much… it’s us having fun.”
The 1975 are scheduled to perform Aug. 20 and 21 at Japan’s Summer Sonic festivals in Tokyo and Osaka. The band also announced “The 1975 – At Their Very Best” North American tour, with tickets on sale during August 2022.
