                            The 1975 release video for 'Love It If We Made It', announce North American tour

The 1975 have released the video for ‘Love It If We Made It’, the second preview from the band’s upcoming third album ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships'. The British band has also announced their 2019 North American tour. 

The band has two new albums in the pipeline, and the first one titled 'A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships' comes out November 30 via Interscope. We’ve already heard several singles from the album including 'Sincerity Is Scary,' 'TooTimeTooTimeTooTime,' 'Give Yourself A Try'. The new single ‘Love It If We Made It’ comes with a steady, thumping beat, twinkling synths and an extremely catchy hook, a formula for instant earworms, and is packed full of pop culture references.

The song is a desperate pop-anthem of hope in these bleak times. As Stereogum points out, the band pays tribute to Lil Peep, who died last November at the age of 21, with the lyrics, “Rest in peace Lil Peep/ The poetry is in the streets/ Jesus saves us!/ Modernity has failed us.”

But the most standout lyric from the track makes a snide reference to the whole debacle involving Kanye West, Donald Trump and MAGA hats, which Healy juxtaposes with grandiose mentions of wealth and war and masturbation. The verse reads, “Tell me something I didn’t know/ Consultation degradation fossil fueling masturbation immigration liberal kitsch kneeling on a pitch/ ‘I moved on her like a bitch!!’/ Excited to be indicted/ Unrequited house with seven pools/ Thank you Kanye, very cool!/War has been incited and guess what you’re all invited.” The video only take the theme forward.
