Being Funny In A Foreign Language auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Being Funny in a Foreign Language is the fifth studio album by English band the 1975. It was released on 14 October 2022 by Dirty Hit.[7] The album was recorded primarily at Real World Studios in Wiltshire. The band released the lead single "Part of the Band" on 7 July 2022, which was followed by the subsequent singles "Happiness", "I'm in Love with You", "All I Need to Hear", "About You", "Oh Caroline", and "Looking for Somebody (To Love)".

The album received acclaim from critics, with many reviewers naming it some of the band's strongest work. It debuted atop the UK Albums Chart as well as reaching number one in Scotland, Ireland and Australia. It also reached the top 7 on the US Billboard 200, as well as top 10 in New Zealand, Japan, Canada and the Netherlands. The album was nominated for Album of the Year at the 2023 Brit Awards.[8]

Background

Many of the band's 2020 shows that were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic were ultimately canceled on 12 January 2021. During this time, lead singer Matty Healy teased future music under their previous name "Drive Like I Do", and said that the band was working on their fifth studio album. However, there was no indication as to when writing, recording, or mixing would be finished.[9]

On 14 February 2022, the band deactivated their main social media accounts, hinting at new material.[10][11]

The album title and track listing were revealed to select fans through postcards. The band released its first single from the album "Part of the Band" on 7 July 2022.[12] The second single, "Happiness", was released on 3 August 2022.[13][14][15] The third single, "I'm in Love with You", was released on 1 September 2022.[16] The fourth single, "All I Need to Hear", was released on 21 September 2022.[17]

Recording and production

"Every record I've made, I convinced myself that I had so much to prove, so it had to be about everything that ever happened, everything that's happening now, and everything that could ever happen. But on this record, I said, 'Instead of a magnum opus, what about more like a polaroid?"

Matty Healy, on Being Funny in a Foreign Language[18]

Writing sessions for what would eventually become Being Funny in a Foreign Language started in 2021, when the band worked on-and-off with producer BJ Burton, whom Healy admired for his production work on Bon Iver's 22, A Million (2016) and Low's Double Negative (2018) and Hey What (2021). During their time together, Burton noticed that his creative process varied greatly from the band's, as they would "[pull] up songs from Spotify, or [check] another reference for a chord progression" while writing.[18] He set out to align their differences, and eventually they did record what amounted to be "sparks where songs were being bred ... a bunch of early demos", but after Burton heard that the band began working with producer Jack Antonoff, he ended the sessions.[18] In an August 2022 interview with Pitchfork, Burton indicated that the band's creative pivot still "stung", though Healy indicated he was hoping to rekindle his working relationship with Burton for a future album.[18]

When recording with Antonoff, the band was determined to focus on their instrumental strong-suits and keep things as live and unadulterated by computers as possible. In an interview with Apple Music 1, Healy amounted the process to outright defining the true sonic identity of the band, while host Zane Lowe described it as the next step for a band with "such restless energy" as the 1975. Lowe cited that the band had "exhausted" their stylistic exploration and had reached a point of reflection on their improved technical skill in this record.[19] Similarly to Burton, Healy sought out to work with Antonoff, whom he called the "biggest producer in the world" out of respect for his production capabilities, specifically his work with American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey.[18] However, Healy made it clear to Antonoff that he retained full creative control of the recording process while working together.[18][19]

Promotion

To support the album, the band embarked on a world tour titled At Their Very Best in 2022.[20][21] This was followed by an arenas tour titled Still... At Their Very Best the following year.[22]

Being Funny in a Foreign Language received critical acclaim upon its release. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 based on reviews from mainstream critics, the album received a score of 82 out of 100, based on reviews from 16 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[24] The album was rated an 7.6 out of 10 on the aggregator AnyDecentMusic?.[23]

Brady Brickner-Wood of Pitchfork wrote that the album "tames the group's taste for excess and plays up their fundamentals: goopy '80s guitars, pumping drums, schmaltzy saxophones, and infuriatingly good hooks" and praised the band's experimentation, noting that "even when their songs reek of camp, Healy has enough moxie to elevate a potentially horrible idea into an eloquent exclamation point".[32] El Hunt, writing for NME, noted how the band "tightened things up" on Being Funny in a Foreign Language, calling Healy's songwriting on the album "his most contradictory and intriguing yet, frequently turning his pen back on himself", concluding that the record "feels like the right next step after pushing experimental excess to its logical conclusion, and is comparatively lean with just eleven tracks to its name. 'The 1975: At Their Very Best' – the lofty, and slightly tongue-in-cheek title they’ve given to their upcoming tour – might be infuriatingly, brilliantly cocky, but let’s face facts: it’s also pretty accurate."[31]

Being Funny In A Foreign Language

The 1975 auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

The 1975 ist eine britische Indie-Rock-Band aus Manchester.

Bandgeschichte

Gegründet wurden The 1975 im Jahr 2002 als Schülerband. Die vier Mitglieder begannen als Cover-Punkband und entwickelten erst mit der Zeit ihren eigenen Stil. Es dauerte zehn Jahre, bis sie beim Label Dirty Hit ihre erste EP mit dem Titel Facedown veröffentlichten. Mit dem Song The City erreichten sie erste Aufmerksamkeit auch bei BBC Radio. Dazu gingen sie als Vorband von den Little Comets auf UK-Tour. Auch die im selben Jahr veröffentlichte EP Sex fand wieder Unterstützung im Radio und bei den Musik-Blogs im Internet und der Titelsong verschaffte ihnen mit einer Platzierung in den US-Modern-Rock-Charts einen Achtungserfolg.

Den Durchbruch hatten The 1975 dann Anfang 2013 mit der dritten EP Music for Cars und daraus der Single Chocolate. Das Lied kam nicht nur erneut in die US-Rockcharts, sondern konnte sich auch in den offiziellen britischen Charts auf Platz 19 setzen und blieb 21 Wochen unter den Top 75. Danach hatten sie zahlreiche Auftritte in England und den USA, darunter auch beim renommierten South by Southwest in Texas. Mit The City folgte im Juni ein weiterer UK-Charthit, die zugehörige EP mit dem Titel IV schaffte es sogar in die US-Albumcharts. Des Weiteren ist The City auf dem Soundtrack zum EA-Sports-Titel FIFA 14 enthalten.

Anfang September 2013 erschien dann das Debütalbum von The 1975 mit dem Bandnamen als Titel. Vorab kam eine Wiederveröffentlichung von Sex in der Albumversion ebenfalls in die Charts. The 1975 wurde aufgrund ihres Debütalbums vom britischen Magazin NME zur "schlechtesten Band des Jahres" gewählt; Jahre später bat die Redaktion um Nachsicht für diese Fehleinschätzung.[1]

The 1975 beim Rock im Park 2016

Im Februar 2016 erschien ihr zweites Studioalbum I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It. Dieses schaffte es bis auf Platz 1 der offiziellen britischen Charts.

2020 erschien das vierte Album Notes on a Conditional Form, das aus 22 Songs besteht und über 80 Minuten läuft. Das Album weist mit seiner Überlänge eklektizistische Züge aus: angefangen beim Garagenrock über Country- und Punk-Authentizität bis hin zu Minimal Music. Gegen die Beliebigkeit der jeweiligen Stile und der willkürlichen Zitation von Sounds arbeitet The 1975 an, indem sie ihre Songs mit hochwertiger Technik und Mikrofonie ästhetisch nuanciert gestalten.

Am 14. Oktober 2022 erschien dann das neue Studioalbum Being Funny in a Foreign Language mit der Lead Single Part of the Band.

Im Juli 2023 wurde der Band ein Auftrittsverbot in Malaysia wegen "kontroversen Verhaltens und Äußerungen" erteilt, nachdem Matty Healy offene Kritik an den strengen Anti-LGBT-Gesetzen des Landes und den örtlichen Behörden äußerte und ein männliches Bandmitglied auf der Bühne küsste.[2]
