The 1975 have something important to tell you on their new song, “I’m in Love with You.” The track comes with a charming black-and-white music video featuring slapstick, dancing, and a surprise appearance by Phoebe Bridgers.

“I’m in Love with You” is the latest preview of the band’s upcoming album Being Funny in a Foreign Language. It finds the rockers embracing their inner poptimists, with lead singer Matty Healy putting a bubblegum bounce into the refrain, “I’m in love with you/ I, I, I, I.”

In the video, Healy plays a silent clown, in the tradition of Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin but with a lot more makeup. He searches for his painted love and their reunion is a kinesthetic wonder, as the choreographer smartly turns Healy’s back as his partner does all the work. Their reunion disturbs a clown Phoebe Bridgers on a bench, and she can be seen mouthing the words, “What the fuck?” Later, Healy and Bridgers take off their makeup and perform for the whole clown town. Check it out below.


Previously, The 1975 have shared the singles “Part of the Band” and “Happiness.” In November they’ll embark on a North American tour, and tickets are available here.
