This Friday, The 1975’s fourth album Notes On A Conditional Form finally arrives in its entirety, following a rollout that began last summer. “There’s a lot of talk about why the album got pushed back, and all these kind of things,” Healy told us. “It’s kind of irrelevant. The premise of my idea was always really to just continuously have a real time expression.”

Conditional is the operative word here. The album sways with a continuous ebb and flow, pushing the band to the most extreme ends of a spectrum they’ve been operating on for the better part of the last decade: it’s simultaneously their most aggressive and dreamy work to date, tied together with iCloud ambience. To Healy, seemingly oppositional forces are the ones most worth pursuing: “I’m always trying to figure out who I am, a search for the definitive self. Why am I this walking set of contradictions when I believe that I’m actually this? Why am I not essentially me?”

Speaking from lockdown in his home studio outside of London, Healy opened up on what making Notes On A Conditional Form revealed about himself, how he currently feels about America, and what needs to be saved during this time of reckoning, within the music industry and beyond.

Chronixx and Ricky Blaze debate aliens, riddims, and more in Would You…

The FADER – Of course when #Chronixx is in town, he has to link with Brooklyn’s own #RickyBlaze. In anticipation for whatever they’ve been cooking up, and in tandem with the release of their newest singles — Chronixx’s “COOL AS THE BREEZE/FRIDAY,” and Lake’s “Swerve” — we’re sharing a video from when both artists touched down in the FADER office to play a pre-pandemic round of Would You Rather. The episode finds them faced with some truly existential dilemmas, such as whether to move to an alien’s planet or have an alien as a roommate. Plus, they mention the one riddim they wish they had thought of themselves, and offer tips for resourcefully recording in a quiet library (go the Ying Yang Twins route).
