The song is the latest preview of the Manchester band’s upcoming fifth album ‘Being Funny In A Foreign Language’, which is due out on October 14 via Dirty Hit (pre-order/pre-save here).
It follows on from the recent tracks ‘Part Of The Band’, ‘Happiness’ and ‘I’m In Love With You’.
“‘Cause I don’t need music in my ears/ I don’t need the crowds and the cheers/ Just tell me you love me/ Cause that’s all that I need to hear,” frontman Matty Healy sings in the romantic new cut.
Speaking to Apple Music 1 about the ‘All I Need To Hear’, Healy explained: “A lot of my songs require me to perform them, but I think that I’d love to hear Joe Cocker [sing this] – not that we could have that, but it feels like one of those songs where it’s like I’ve stepped out of the Matty-ness of everything.”
He continued: “And it’s something that Adele could sing, it would make total sense, and she wouldn’t have to talk about jacking off or what [The 1975’s] usual subject matter is.”
Healy performed a solo version of ‘All I Need To Hear’ when he supported Phoebe Bridgers in Los Angeles last October.
‘All I Need To Hear’ is accompanied by a Samuel Bradley-directed official live performance video. You’ll be able to watch it here when it premieres at 6pm BST.
The 1975 are set to embark on a UK and Ireland headline tour in January 2023 following a string of North American concerts this November/December. You can find any remaining tickets here (UK) and here (NA).
Last month, The 1975 stepped in as last-minute headliners at Reading & Leeds 2022 after Rage Against The Machine were forced to cancel. It marked Healy and co’s second bill-topping appearance at the dual event.
In a four-star review of their Reading ’22 set, NME praised The 1975 for “effortlessly party[ing] through the greatest hits”, adding: “They know their way around a pop song and putting on a show.”
