Premiered as Annie Mac’s hottest record in the world, The 1975 have just released their new single If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know), taken from their upcoming fourth album Notes on A Conditional Form, released on May 22nd.
Even before its release, If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know), was already a fan favourite. The band debuted the track on their UK and Ireland tour back in February, and it wasn’t long before social media was alight with videos of the track with entire arenas singing along.
The studio version features vocals from FKA Twigs, and feels like a ‘classic’ 1975 song, with big hooks and a catchy chorus blending wonderfully with 80’s greatness thanks to the massive saxophone solo, a perfect summer track.
The track is written about lead singer Matty Healy being on a video call with a woman, and wanting things to go further. The song comes accompanied with a black-and-white performance video which feels slightly reminiscent of the music video for ‘Girls’ released in 2013.
