The 1975’s new album ‘I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it’ has gone straight to no.1 on the UK Official Albums Chart.

The sophomore release from the Manchester four-piece has sold more than 58,000 copies in the UK alone in its first week as well as scoring them a number one album in Australia and New Zealand.

The much-anticipated album, released through Dirty Hit/Polydor, has united critics in their praise, earning plaudits ranging from “Essential” (NME – 4 stars), “Packed full of fantastic pop songs and smart lyrics” (The Guardian – 4 stars), “Astonishing” (Sunday Times Culture) to “Heroically ambitious” (GQ), “A flamboyant triumph” (Evening Standard) and “This is their year” (The Times – 4 stars). Q declares them “The UK’s most exciting young band”.

‘I like it when you sleep…’ follows in the footsteps of the quartet’s million-selling self-titled debut which also claimed the top spot on the UK’s Official Albums Chart on its first week of release. It is a bold and brilliant record made up of infectious pop hooks and sprawling electro sonics, an ambitious stride forward for one of the UK’s most exciting young bands.

The 1975 today embark on a 15-date sold out tour of the UK and Ireland, including a five night run at London’s O2 Brixton Academy and three nights at the O2 Apollo in the band’s hometown of Manchester.
