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.

Nobody’s having more fun than Flo Milli: The FADER Interview | T…

The FADER – It’s been a landmark year for Flo Milli, who’s gone from the inescapable fancam virality of “Beef FloMix” to fully consecrating her formidable presence on her debut project Ho, why is you here? which dropped earlier this summer. In her FADER Interview with Christine Ochefu, Flo reflects on her past and present, and what it’s meant to step into the position of a role model: “I’ve always been confident… with other darker girls looking up to me, that just makes me more confident. It’s really just knowing yourself and not going by society’s standards, because if you think like society, you’ll be like everybody else, and I don’t think I’m like everybody else.” Elsewhere in the interview, she offers advice for up-and-coming artists when dealing with major label contracts, and delineates a plan for continued female rap domination “you look at the guys in the game, and it’s quick… they can collab with this one, that one. With females, if we take our platforms and combine them, we’ll upbring everything we have.” Subscribe now for more The FADER  http://bit.ly/XPZVfG Read the FADER: http://www.thefader.com Follow the FADER on Twitter: https://twitter.com/thefader Like the FADER on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/11JaNSJ Follow the FADER on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thefader/
