Someone pass us the tissues.
Damn, these guys know how to spoil us!
The 1975 have premiered yet another song from their new album I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It, released on Friday.
"Change of Heart" is the fifth song to lifted from the album. As we said yesterday in our track-by-track preview of the album, the song details the breakdown of a relationship. It's a classic 1975 track, drenched in sentimentalism with a wry, humorous twist. We just love this lyric: "You were coming across as clever then you lit the wrong end of your cigarette". Zing!
This one might be perfect though: "You said I'm full of diseases / Your eyes were full of regret / And then you took a picture of your salad / And posted it on the internet". That line captures the sometimes-fickle nature of social media so well. The whole song is full of great lyrics. You should check out the Genius page if you get a chance.
