The 1975 Working With One Direction

Posted by: Kyle Huntington (03/26/14)
The 1975 were guests on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show this morning and took part in the "Call or Delete" prank phonecall game. Matty Healy not only prank called Niall Horan and Harry Styles of One Direction but also confirmed that he is writing music for the group (which may add more of an explanation to this photo). Listen to the whole bit in the replies.

I love One Direction. The 1975 just sound like he's speaking a different language when he sings.

Well, now I'm embarrassed to say I blast "Chocolate" in the car almost every day on my way to work. It's catchy okay :(

As long as it doesn't affect The 1975 and their sound I have no problem with this.

Just to echo what most seem to be thinking or saying: The 1975 YES, 1D NO.

there's nothing wrong with one direction, their new album is way different from what everyone's used to of them. liam and louis have also written with benji and joel, and possibly pete wentz but i'm not really sure.. they did meet him when they were with matty the other day though so it could've easily just been meeting him

oh and this happened too forever ago for anyone who wants to be even more embarrassed about liking the 1975 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEVXmzHY1lU

I'd love to know why you think this is embarrassing. This is an awesome cover

One of my favorite current songwriters.

With that as your focus, I'd say feel free to be super happy. Working with a group that has a gold album upon release is the kind of thing that builds a songwriter's career. More Matty Healy songwriting in megapop automatically means slightly less songwriting you don't like in megapop. Looking at the past 50 years, I don't see performers writing for other performers creating most of the music that contributed to radio pop getting a bad name.

It's good for Healy, The 1975, 1D (longevity via evolution), and perhaps a very good challenge to some of the less-inspired megapop "hitmakers." The only potential loser here is someone deeply invested in what he/she thinks The 1975 "should" do, and there are tons of bands that person could support. Anyone who can get 1D to answer the phone right now and doesn't work with them is making a terrible mistake (IMO).
