Matty Healy frontman The 1975 have been discussing the possibility of releasing Drive Like I Do rarities according to their manager.
Drive Like I Do was the band’s name before adopting The 1975. In 2017, Healy confirmed that there was a secret debut album from the band knocking around.
Healy even went as far as to say the record would arrive “in the coming few years”, suggesting that the two bands were “separate entities.”
Now, boss of Dirty Hit records and manager of The 1975, Jamie Oborne, has hinted that the secret record may soon be available to hear for the first time.
As Oborne was asked about the progress of the upcoming new The 1975 album Notes On A Conditional Form, he was also asked: “Is there any chance old tracks like Wolves will ever get released?”
He replied: “Yes matty and I are talking about releasing a DLID rarities record. Would you all like that?” It was a question that was met with a snort of derision and a demand for the DLID LP.
Recently, Healy had to deny that a Drive Like I Do website was legit. Fans had thought that a comeback was on the way as a new website was launched before being taken offline.
