The new album cover for The 1975’s Notes on a Conditional Form has been released, and while it may be on theme… it’s not quite what we all expected.
Back in July, The 1975 started their new era with an Instagram blackout and the release of the “The 1975,” featuring a Greta Thunberg monologue.
It’s clear that The 1975 will be making a political and/or environmental impact with their upcoming album- and their new album cover is meant to reflect that.
Though the use of emojis may have been a questionable artistic choice, it is likely a representation of the current state of society and its life on social media. It is also a nod to George Orwell’s 1984 quote:
“If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.”
The English band’s fourth studio album drops on February 21, 2020.
