The 1975 Delight Fans with New Album

the 1975

After leaving a trail of singles, the 1975 finally dropped their fourth album, “Notes on a Conditional Form.” Now, the album’s got a whopping 22 tracks, of which they’ve given us a taste of tunes like ‘Guys’, ‘The Birthday Party’, ‘Me & You Together Song’ and quite a few others.

Now, what you might’ve noticed from these tracks is that the band has experimented with a range of different genres and concepts. Some revolve around friendships, some around the toxic nature of technology, some delve into love and some well, are just rather psychedelic. When it comes to genres, this album sees a fine cocktail of Alt-Pop, Rock and of course a lot of ambient tunes.

Where Does the Album Lack?

Interestingly enough, the first track sees a climate change speech by none other than Greta Thunberg. The 1975 are known for their activism and socio-political leanings. In fact, frontman, Matt Healy, has never shied away from speaking out about heavier issues like misogyny in the industry, environmental issues and music politics. So, it’s no surprise that the album kicks off with this speech.

And yet, this album has been criticized for not following through with one running theme. Some reviews have pointed out that the album is a bit all over the place and at certain points even “lacks focus”. Which is understandable. When crafting a mighty 22 tracks, it must prove quite difficult to sustain a single theme over every track. That being said, putting such wildly different thoughts and ideas into a single project is rather overwhelming. Almost like a child picking out random crayons to colour their latest drawing.

That’s not to say that all their tracks fall flat. They’ve definitely managed to bring something new to the table with this album. Considering that many of their tracks veer to the boundaries of the Pop genre. But for a better understanding of the process and concept behind this album, it’s best to hear it from the band itself. While Matt Healy hasn’t spoken out about this yet, for now, we can revel in all these 22 tracks.

Because one thing’s for sure, the 1975 have made sure that listeners will keep coming back for more.

Machine Gun Kelly and Meghan Fox have might have just confirmed that they’re together by starring in a video together. MGK, American rapper and singer released a video for the song “Bloody Valentine”, a single officially from his fourth upcoming album “Tickets To My Downfall”.

“Bloody Valentine” stars the Transformer actress who has probably kidnapped Machine Gun Kelly in the video. This surely lets the fans know Meghan Fox has ended her 16 years long marriage with her husband, Brian Austin Green.

“Bloody Valentine” is directed by Michael Garcia who does not think that these two are anything more than friends. However Meghan Fox adds fuel to the fire by ensuring to be all flirty with MGK in the video.

Meghan Fox is a dominatrix, taping the rapper’s mouth in the bed and electrocuting the musician in the bathtub. The lyrics go like ”  “I’m calling you girlfriend, what the f—,” and “I’d give everything up tonight if I could just have you be mine.”

Machine Gun Kelly looks like the submissive lover while his girlfriend, Meghan Fox controls him in Calvin Klein outfits. She’s got the rapper almost on a leash, by giving him kisses on his pink tapped mouth or feeding him donuts while he’s tied up.

Though, the rumors started right after the Machine Gun Kelly and the actress were spotted in his car, now, we can start to contemplate if these two are a thing or not! If you want to know what we are exactly talking about, just see the video.

Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande Stun With Their New Track, ‘Rain on Me’

Just last week, Lady Gaga teased her much awaited collab with Ariana Grande by putting out a picture of the cover art for their song, ‘Rain on Me’. And now, the tune has finally landed in our laps. This one’s going to feature in Lady Gaga’s upcoming album, ‘Chromatica’. It’s set to drop on May 29th.

The song showcases both Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga’s unmatched vocals, making it incredibly catchy. Between stunning falsettos and Gaga’s husky vocals, which we see in bouts, the song simply hooks you in from the very first notes. Not to mention the fantastic retro beats that create the foundation of this track.  

Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande 'Rain on Me' Lyrics

Lady Gaga Gives us a Peek at the Process

Speaking about this collab with Zane Lowe, Lady Gaga explained, “I said to her, ‘OK, now everything that you care about while you sing, I want you to forget it and just sing, and by the way, while you’re doing that, I’m going to dance in front of you. And she was like, ‘Oh my God. Oh my God, I can’t, I can’t. I don’t know. Oh my God. OK, OK.’ And then I did it and she sang, and she started to do things with her voice that was different. And it was the joy of two artists going, ‘I see you.'”

Which is an interesting way of pulling something new out of a singer. Rather than falling back on familiar pop melodies. Gaga has also promised that the music video, which is yet to drop, will showcase a new side to Ariana Grande. She also opened up about their friendship and how it bloomed.

“She (Ariana) would try over and over again to be friends with me. And I was too ashamed to hang out with her because I didn’t want to project all of this negativity onto something that was healing and so beautiful. And eventually she called me on my s–t. She was, ‘You’re hiding.’ And I was … and then this friendship blossomed.” It’s simply lovely to witness artists confiding in each other and supporting each other. This just proves that it’s not always about the music, it’s also about their personal growth as people.

Anyway, enough about that, now it’s high time you listen to their track.
