The 1975 have announced details of their much-anticipated second album.

‘I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it’ will be released on
February 26th 2016 through Dirty Hit/Polydor. To coincide with the new record, the art-pop
quartet will embark on a UK tour in March. Tickets for the March tour go on sale 9AM Friday
The 1975 are one of the breakthrough British bands of the past decade.

They got together as school friends on the outskirts of Manchester and arrived, reinvigorating the alternative scene as they took 2013 by storm. It was a year that set the band on what Matthew Healy has described as a “delirious ascent”.

Propelled by anthemic songs such as ‘Chocolate’ and ‘Girls’, their self-titled debut album entered the UK charts at Number One and has gone on to sell over 1 million copies worldwide plus approaching 1 billion streams and 500,000 tickets.

‘I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it’ is available to pre-order in a variety of formats: CD, gatefold double heavyweight transparent pink vinyl and a super 13th November.
