The Manchester pop rockers in The 1975 are back with a new single. Matty Healy went on MistaJam’s show on BBC Radio 1 to premiere a new track — a cover of the legendary Sade’s “By Your Side.”
The track features a new take on the vocals, as Healy croons through an auto-tuned, vocoded filter. Healy said he drew inspiration from artists such as Francis and the Lights (who developed and popularized the widely used “prismizer” vocal effect) and Bon Iver.
Listen to the new single above (starts around the 35 second mark) and let us know: Did The 1975 do Sade justice?
