The 1975 share playful video for new single ‘Happiness,’ announce tour

The 1975 are back with a video for their new single, “Happiness.”

The track comes from their forthcoming album, Being Funny In A Foreign Language, out October 14th via Dirty Hit. “Happiness” takes the 1975’s quintessential synth pop sounds and adds a funky new twist.

“‘Happiness’ is like… there’s literally loads of us in the room on that track,” frontman Matty Healy tells Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe. “Locked eyes…Doesn’t really have much structure. It came through like jamming. And we haven’t done that in like years. So we just wanted this record to be really like a captured moment and not be too constructed and even produced that much…we did it in like a day or so. And it’s us having fun. And I think that there’s this real desire in art to see something remarkable with as little technology as possible. Do you know what I mean? Like you don’t need like Paul Thomas Anderson to direct a hundred meters.”
