The English band dropped the song on YouTube with a live video performance
The 1975 have just released If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know), the sixth song from their upcoming studio album Notes on a Conditional Form.
The English band debuted the single on YouTube yesterday, April 23, 2020, with a black and white live video directed by Adam Powell. If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know) is a huge synth-pop tune with an identifiable guitar line and an irresistible saxophone in the chorus. The song describes an online romance with a mysterious girl: frontman Matt Healy starts singing “I see her online, all the time” while, in a very catchy chorus, he adds “She said, ‘Maybe I would like you better / If you took off your clothes’”. British singer and songwriter FKA Twigs provides backing vocals in the intro for the song.
The 1975 first performed the song in February during their UK tour dates and, since last year, they shared more tracks from their upcoming album, including Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America, the long-awaited collaboration with Phoebe Bridgers.
With If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know), The 1975 seem to return to the 80s pop-rock sound of their second album, I Like It When You Sleep for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It, that brought them fame back in 2016.
The band’s new record, Notes on a Conditional Form, will be released on May 22, 2020.
