Matty Healy performs with Phoebe Bridgers, plays new songs from The 1975

The 1975 frontman Matty Healy opened up for Phoebe Bridgers at one of her shows at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Bridgers was supposed to open for The 1975 on tour in the summer of 2020 before it was cancelled, but this performance came as a surprise. Matty Healy played a solo acoustic set, which opened with two brand new songs from The 1975. One of those songs was called “New York,” but Healy didn’t reveal the other title.

Then, Healy ran through some previously released tunes from the band like “Be My Mistake” and “Sex.” At the end, Matty Healy welcomed Bridgers on stage. Together, they performed their Notes On A Conditional Form collaboration, “Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America,” live for the first time ever.

Over the summer, Matty Healy teased that he was “making another ‘classic’ record.”

He also recently collaborated with No Rome and Charli XCX on their dance-worthy tune, “Spinning.” The song was produced by No Rome alongside The 1975’s Matty Healy and George Daniel. It sees Charli XCX taking the lead on vocals with harmonies from Healy and a verse from No Rome. It’s definitely a dance-worthy, club-ready anthem. This song is sure to make you wish you were dancing with some friends, screaming along to the tune with lines like, “24/7 in Heaven/ But nothing compares/ Thought you’d get over the feeling/ But you just keep spinning over there.”

Bridgers has brought out some amazing surprise openers at her shows, including none other than her boygenius bandmate, Julien Baker.
