The 1975‘s upcoming album, Being Funny in a Foreign Language, lives up to at least the first part of its title. And you don’t need to take our word for it, just ask Taylor Swift.
In a new profile of frontman Matty Healy, Pitchfork reports that Swift “got an early listen” of Being Funny in a Foreign Language. Her thoughts? Three words: “It’s so funny.”
The “Shake It Off” singer isn’t the only music superstar who’s a 1975 fan. Healy reveals he received a text from Coldplay‘s Chris Martin calling the lead Being Funny single, “Part of the Band,” a “brave song.”
“And I was, like, ‘I don’t know how to be brave,'” Healy laughs.
Elsewhere in the interview, Healy reveals that he “hate[s]” Metallica — “My worst band of all time,” he says — but also shares he once got weed from another “Big Four” thrash rocker: Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine.
Being Funny in a Foreign Language drops October 14. The 1975 will launch a U.S. tour in support of the album in November.
