How the Yacht Rocker almost sank Christopher Cross 1975’s new album – Variety

9 min read

In an alternate universe, singer / guitarist Matthew Haley will be at the top of Madison Square Garden with his chart-topping, the Grammy-nominated band promoting around 50,000 fans in 1955 to shake up Canon songs from electro pop to camouflage, punk.

Instead, Healy’s exuberant, fast-burning, outspoken music in music and culture – especially her new 1975, fourth album, “Notes on a Conditional Notes” and earlier, replica, 2018’s “A Brief Search for Online Relationships” – by Unpleasant Treatment Obstacles. It looks like a bird flew into a recording studio in Oxford, England, with the singer’s head compressed. “It really made sense to me! My heart is going! “He says, inhale, quickly before handing over the task at hand.

This is the perfect barrier for a singer who can turn the dime from a whisper to a scream. 1975 is neutrally more popular in their country of England where they have won the Brit Award and the Ivor Novolo Award and nominated for the Mercury Award. But Spotify 345 million streams for the 2016 “Someone Else” track, and the short release of “Me and You Together” from the new release, forcibly brought the success of the size of the stride.

Band members – Haley, drummer George Daniel, guitarist Adam Han and bassist Ross MacDonald – have created a mysterious, 60-minute masterpiece with “conditional form notes” that they are probably unable to support the planning American. The arena tour, however, quickly expressed gratitude for any frustration. Haley said, “We make music and we can continue to do it because we have received enough praise. “We knew there was one [studio] In an environment where we could go and feel safe, we were counting our chickens on that subject, in stark contrast to the amount of people who have the ability to be completely ‘destroyed’. We’re in a favorable situation, you know? “

As a singer-songwriter whose mind is in overdrive and who likes the creative process – Haley has at various times sought illegal chemically induced ways to calm his brain – he has found grace in the break. “Over the past few years my presence on social media has become quite binary about how it would be like a joke or some information,” he explains. “That would hardly be an opinion.” Healy now has a definition of LP – long play record – and press platforms that allow him to touch the rumors on more measurable terms, as he did recently. Diversity.

Greta Thanberg opens the album with a spoken word track. How did it come about?

Well, it comes from Kinda that our albums always start with that same piece of music; There is a startup term like Sega or Microsoft in it was like an idea. We were talking about what should happen now; What will be the most modern version of it? It quickly became ‘What is the most modern statement?’ Then, ‘Who is talking the most?’ We had the same kind of moment with “The Man Who Married a Robot” on the last album, because I was going to read that spoken word, and then we were like, ‘What if it was Siri?’ We were ‘ha ha ha’. Then: ‘Oh, boo boo, no, it’s valid.’ So we said, ‘What if Greta Thanberg reads the words in’ The 1975 ‘? And we were like,’ Yeah. But wait, if Greta was saying, then how do we send each other that Greta is giving a speech, ‘Brother, this kid.’ Crazy, she’s wild. ‘We love her.

Have you met him before?

I met him and it was crazy. I come from punk and hardcore, right? I didn’t make it as a responsibility, but tried and tried to meet many of my heroes from that scene. They were all bad asses. But the most legitimate person I’ve ever met is Greta Thanberg. Straight up, no waste of time, no waste of time. It’s really inspiring.

After that, you do interviews and people ask you ‘why?’ You don’t think a lot of ‘why’ in your life. I mean we’re talking like purpose and staff. But I think the thing I’m proud of is that I wanted to capture his words in a formal way in pop culture, because I think there are countless approvals and thumb ups and rivets and ‘likes’ but it’s a record that people in 500 years Can find and understand what people are trying to do. Like, you’re not going to look like a tweet in the rubble. You’re going to look artistic and it’s like a record of our time.

Looks like he doesn’t really think about popular music.

I asked him if he heard the last word and he looked at me really confused and said, “Radio”. I was like, “I didn’t mean it literally, but okay, great.” He doesn’t give a shit, man. He just wants to save the world. I met him in a studio in Stockholm. She got on the bike with her father. He’s just real. I really appreciate the time.

At what stage of your writing and recording did it become clear that you felt you needed to record two behind your back? Was the song split?

Not at all. Maybe a lot of artists can work that way if I do [did], I can see that from the place of fear to me. For example, saying, ‘Oh, I’m not going to put this very good thing on this album, because I want to spread my good stuff across both’ ’when we were“ a short investigation ”we were making a“ short investigation ”. “When we announced we were doing another album, every Friday before we finished the first one of the two of us we would sit there and have a bit of‘ fuyuk, this is crazy ’.

However … I knew it was a statement for the time being: an album. It’s not enough, it’s just not enough, I wanted to travel for a long time and I want the best young people to be able to do it in the modern modern era basically exist. People like Drake can and do take part in Zitzist because in part they are also solo artists, so they can only go solo after solo. They are professional in getting people’s attention for three minutes. For me, I was thinking, ‘Well, I’m not a contemporary artist if I’m not present.’ Or what I think is a long presence. But I’m not really as single as my thing. So I guess I just think: two records.

The song “The Birthday Party” resonates with the tune: “I seem to be clean, relying on my friends,” and “Fascinate yourself with stealing and poor health and my wealth and progressive causes / Buy your kumbucha an ed rucha” . “A lot has happened since you wrote this …

The reason for this inspiration is that I have two different ways of writing. It is either really short-form or really long-form. So if I find a piece of music – like ‘Sincerity Horror’ or ‘Birthday Party’ it basically allows me to use a lot of words and express myself in that long-form. I think because it was the first song, I would be afraid, ‘Do I have another album in me?’ But then, ‘Is this a real concern ??’ I believe it will happen if you make up. So I just started to turn around and it started to happen, and I was like, ‘Oh f – k, yeah. This is great. ’

If ‘The Birthday Party’ was the first, what was the last song written?

“Bugsy Not in the Net” just before the end of the record. I was so excited, basically just making records in this studio or on tour. So whenever Reddit was like, ‘Oh it’s delayed,’ as I was, ‘I’m not king f it’s like my best record. I’ll finish it in a minute. ”But I run a label and understand how it works. So I provided the track list because Apple said something like ‘Come on!’ It was like I told them it was 22 tracks, which it was. So we’re finishing the record, then mastering it. And there were 21 songs. George and I were looking at each other.

Then we realize that an introduction has become a track or something like that. And so, for two minutes we were in this place, like this place, “f – k, we don’t have songs.” But I said to George, “Do you think that last night when we were listening to music, some yacht rock compilation and ‘sailing’ from Christopher Cross came?” “Bugsy Not In The Net,” is the only string included in this song [“Sailing”] With a strange beat

I told him, “Remember when we heard it as teenagers? We said, “Wouldn’t that be a wonderful example of a garage song like the ‘Streets’ song?” When I reminded him of it, George was like, “f – k yeah”. It’s an idea that I’d like to make regardless of whether I got a hole to fill the album. So we got it and made it really unreasonable; Sometimes the level of excitement can really inspire. Sometimes things take two years, like ‘What do I say?’ And sometimes things take just a minute, and like time this moment happened and that’s it. The reason we knew it was because it wasn’t until you had your own album.

And a great collection of 22 songs.

We figured out what this record was about – trying to capture that feeling of garage music when we were younger. And that sample was almost like a lost sample of the album. We used it, then we would contact Christopher Cross. With everyone I’ve sampled – The Temptations, Joy Division – I usually say, “Hey guys, we used this bit of song. Do you want publishing?” No one ever goes, “You can’t use it.” But when Christopher Cross comes back the team goes “no” I like, “What do you mean ‘no’?” They were, “Tough, no, don’t do it.” If you do, we’ll get emotional. “

What a useless; Do you know why

I was like, “What’s going on? Like Chris Cross certainly doesn’t like … I’m not bad … It’s really confusing!” We just kept going back to them and trying to convince ourselves. He also had the coronavirus at the time. Just like a f-king nightmare, so I can’t play and like him, ‘Hey Chris, I know you’re probably feeling a little bad, but তাই’ So I got in touch with Kurt. [Smith] From tears to tears. He’s my friend, oddly enough. And so it’s the most ‘80s thing in the world.

I just revealed “If you’re too embarrassed (let me know)” I’m ringing the chord for contacting Chris Cross. I contacted his manager and he said, “Oh, this song has been sampled in so many bad ways.” They basically get a request every week and just say no. Then his manager was like, “I got it. When [Chris] Well done, let me actually take it to her. However, in the end it was good.

Wait, if he has a Kavid-19, is it a few weeks before the album comes out?

Babu, I was going to pull the album! I have been doing fronting for the last one month. I was like delivering it to Footy iTunes. It was there. I already pressed it on a kind of plastic. It was on the way to people’s homes. I made such a big guess.

The Greater Speech is a reminder that comes out of the music there that inspires change. Were people like Bob Geldof or Joe Stramer influential in your childhood?

Extensive. Joe Stramer in particular clashed for me, the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll band. When I was 13, I got involved like a scene; I read emo music, alternative music. But the motivation for what I love is conviction. So I was drawn to punk. My dad, even my occasional mom, I sat around and listened to Wilson Pickett, James Brown, Donnie Hathaway, Sam Cook, the really important artists in black music.

Or white artists who came from black music such as Joe Cocker or Rolling Stones. The protesting songs were present in my real life. Transformed music has always really inspired me. I think what’s interesting about my band right now is that I somehow come from soul music to heavy music, which you find [a band] Like Jesus and Mary Chain. আমরা সহজাতভাবে একটি ভারী ব্যান্ড, এবং এটি আমাদের ক্যারিয়ার জুড়ে এক রকমের ভুল ব্যাখ্যা করা হয়েছিল।

এত কিছু আর হয় না। বিকল্প হিসাবে ভারী সংগীত আমার হাতে মারা গেল যখন আমি এর অংশ ছিলাম। আপনি যখন লিম্প বিস্কিট এবং সত্যিকারের বাণিজ্যিকীকরণের বিদ্রোহের দিকে যাবেন, তখন এটি আর বাণিজ্যিকীকরণের প্রতিষেধক ছিল না। আমার ব্যান্ডটি এয়ার কোটগুলিতে – সুন্দর সংগীত, সুন্দর সংগীত, এর কারণটিই মূলত কারণ কারণ এটি বাক্সের তীক্ষ্ণতম সরঞ্জাম। আপনি যদি লোকেরা শুনতে চান তবে সুন্দর কিছু উপস্থাপন করুন; তারা উঠে বসেন এবং তারা এটি শুনেন। বিষয়টি হ’ল, আমি “লোক” এর মতো ভারী গান পেয়েছি। তারা দুর্দান্ত, তবে তারা লিনিয়ার। তারা সহজ; এটি আগ্রাসনের সাথে মিলিত আগ্রাসনের মতো। আপনি সুন্দর সংগীতে যে নৈতিক দ্বিধা প্রকাশ করেন তা উপস্থাপন করতে পারবেন না, আপনি যদি কিছু সুন্দর করে তৈরি করেন এবং তার মধ্যে এমন ধারণাগুলি সরবরাহ করেন যা তা নয়, তবে এই আশ্চর্যজনক ধ্বংসাত্মক, নৈতিক দ্বিধা যা মানুষকে প্রবেশ করে দেয়। আপনি এটি করতে পারবেন না আপনার পুরো জীবনকে তিন-চ্যাডিং করে এবং কেবল চিৎকার করছেন।

এই 22 টি গানের ক্রমটি কি তত্ক্ষণাত স্পষ্ট হয়েছিল? “ছেলেরা,” আপনার “ব্যান্ডের কাছে ভালবাসার গান” কি শেষ ট্র্যাকটি যাতে নতুন করে শুরু করার জন্য দরজাটি খুলতে হয় বা তার পরে কী হয়?

এটি সর্বদা রেকর্ডের শেষ হতে চলেছিল। আমি কেবল জানতাম, কারণ এই প্রথম আমি এই চরিত্র হিসাবে নিজেকে ব্যাকুলভাবে ফিরে চেয়েছিলাম, যিনি ব্যান্ডে অগত্যা নয়। আমি এর আগে কখনও প্রত্যাবর্তনমূলক বিবৃতি দিতে পারি নি এবং আমার মনে হয় এটি শেষ হওয়া গুরুত্বপূর্ণ ছিল, কারণ এটি ছিল সত্যই সুন্দর প্রতিচ্ছবি। এমন সময় আমি ভাবছিলাম যে এটি একটি উল্লেখযোগ্য পরিমাণে 1975 সালের শেষ হতে চলেছে। তবে এটি এখন আলাদা একটি পৃথিবী। আমি মনে করি যে রেকর্ডটি পুরানো বিশ্বে প্রাসঙ্গিক ছিল এবং এটি আশ্চর্যজনক যে এটি এখন প্রকাশিত হচ্ছে। তবে আমি এখনই যে বিবৃতি দিচ্ছি তাতে মনোনিবেশ করতে স্বাচ্ছন্দ্যবোধ করব না।

ইংলিশ মেজররা মনে রাখবেন যে “শর্তসাপেক্ষ থেকে” এটি একটি কাল্পনিক ধরণের “যদি এটি হয়, তবে” নির্মাণ। আপনি কি সাধারণভাবে এটি মনে করেন?

এটি অন্য দিনের জন্য পুরো কথোপকথন! আমি মনে করি যে আমার রেকর্ডগুলি সংজ্ঞায়িত নিজেই অনুসন্ধান সম্পর্কে খুব বেশি। আমি ‘কে f fk আমি?’ এবং ‘যদি আমি এই হয় তবে আমি কেন এইরকম এবং কেন আমিও এই বৈপরীত্য?’ আমি মনে করি যে “শর্তসাপেক্ষী নোটগুলি নোটগুলি” আমাকে “সংক্ষিপ্ত তদন্তের বিরোধিতা করছে” অনলাইন সম্পর্কের ক্ষেত্রে, “যা আমি মানুষকে কী ভাবার তা বলছিলাম। এটি একটি প্রবন্ধ শিরোনাম মত ছিল। এটি এই সম্পর্কে এই ধারণা দেয় this তার উপর ভিত্তি করে আপনার মতামত গঠন করুন। ” তাই আমি লোকদের মতামত বন্ধ রাখার জন্য একটি কাঠামো দিই।

“একটি শর্তসাপেক্ষী ফর্মের নোটগুলি” দিয়ে আমি একটি শিরোনাম তৈরি করেছি যা আক্ষরিকভাবে কোনও কিছু প্রকাশ করতে অক্ষম ছিল। আমি নিজেকে চ্যালেঞ্জ করতে চেয়েছিলাম। আমি লোকেদের চ্যালেঞ্জ জানাতে চেয়েছিলাম যে ‘আমি এ সম্পর্কে কী বলছি না’ এবং এজন্য কিছু পর্যালোচনা পাঁচটি তারা এবং তাদের মধ্যে দুটি তারকা, কারণ লোকেরা তাদের নিজস্ব জিনিস এনে দিচ্ছে। লোকেদের মতো, ‘এটির কোনও দিকনির্দেশ নেই’ বা ‘এটি একটি সুন্দর জগাখিচুড়ি’ বা তারা যা বলছে তা। কারণ এটি এতটাই ব্যাখ্যামূলক, এই রেকর্ড। এটাই আমাকে সত্যই উত্তেজিত করে।
