The 1975 have released the second single from their upcoming LP Being Funny in a Foreign Language and announced a North American tour (dubbed the At Their Very Best Tour). The new track is called “Happiness.” Check out the band’s Samuel Bradley–directed video below.

In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, the 1975’s Matty Healy discussed his band’s new single:

“Happiness” is like… there’s literally loads of us in the room on that track. 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.

In addition, Healy discussed working with Jack Antonoff on Being Funny in a Foreign Language:

I love Jack’s work, and those Lana [Del Rey] records, in particular, like, some of my favorite stuff. So we were talking about that. We became friends talking about production and what I was doing and what he was wanting to do and what I was wanting to do. And then I kind of just thought, “Well, this is like a really nice new energy.” I don’t… because we are so closed, me and George [Daniel], we’ve always been so closed. “Why don’t you like come down to the studio and see what happens?” And then he did. And, then, ever since, we were just great, great friends.

Healy continued:

He’s so good. What he does is identifies what an artist is really good at or where the truth is coming from. And it’s a bit like, if you think of like a great comedian, the language of like sense of humor, they can sense where the humor is in the situation. Jack’s like, he’s like me, you know what I mean? He’s like culture vulture, he’s like full of references. He knows his shit, man. He understands what artists need at any given moment. And it happened very, very naturally.  And I think that we were just feeling loads of stuff out. And all these things just kind of came together. Yeah, and me and Jack were just like talking about music and then those conversations, me, Jack, and George. And then those conversations became about a 1975 record that felt more live. And then I was a bit like, “Well, why are we talking about this? Why don’t we just do this?”

Being Funny in a Foreign Language is out October 14 via Dirty Hit. The album title was first teased in postcards to fans back in June. The 1975 recorded the new record at Real World Studios in Wiltshire, England, as well as Electric Lady Studios in New York.

The new LP follows the band’s 2020 full-length Notes on a Conditional Form, and includes lead single “Part of the Band,” which arrived last month with a video directed by Samuel Bradley. The song features vocals from Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner on the chorus.
