In a new report by the outlet, which highlighted must-see tours and forthcoming sets for 2018, editor Alexis Petridis listed an April 27th release date for their third studio album. Once the Twitterverse picked up on the golden nugget, the band's manager, Jamie Oborne, chimed in with a tweet directed at lead singer Matty Healy, writing, "next phase," and a follow-up tweet with a link to Public Enemy's, "Don't Believe The Hype."
We're not sure if that is a silent yes or no to the speculation, but it would make sense for the LP to drop sometime soon. After all, Music For Cars was first announced last April with the release of a new song called "Milk" in October. Well, maybe we should call it "new-ish," considering it's simply a remastered version of the track that has been hidden in their song "You."
Music For Cars will follow the release of their second album, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, which dropped in February 2016, and last December's live album, DH00278. See the string of tweets about the rumored release date below!
