To be surrounded by people but to feel completely alone; to experience something intimate as though you’re watching from the distance: that’s what Not To Disappear is. It’s an honest, unblinking record – on that choses reality over romanticism, and the messy complexities of human emotion over the superficial tropes of mainstream culture. — The Line Best Fit
Could this album be Classified’s best yet? Fans definitely think so:
@classified I have to admit your song “It’s hard to understand” gave me goosebumps! 😯 My favorite on the album for the lyrics! #Greatful 👌 — Gabs (@GabrielLoiselle) January 15, 2016

The 1975: The Sound (Single)
Today, the alt rock band debuted a new track “The Sound” that will appear on their sophomore album I Like It When You Sleep for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It.
In the context of the upcoming album, which Healy describes as “expansive” in terms of genre influence, the singer notes that there is a “confidence” that comes across on “The Sound” because of how especially poppy it is. “It wears its pop on its sleeve and it’s kind of unabashed,” he says. “There hasn’t been a vehicle yet for us to do that. This album is perfect [for the song] because it’s juxtaposed with everything the album is.” — Rolling Stone
