Interesting facts and trivia about The 1975. By Songfacts®.

The opening song on Notes On A Conditional Form follows the pattern established by The 1975's previous project openers: they are all titled "The 1975," after the band. The first three have identical lyrics, but "The 1975" Notes On A Conditional Form breaks that tradition. Instead of frontman Matty Healy singing, the track features spoken word vocals about climate change from Swedish activist Greta Thunberg. "With that song, the reason I do the same thing every time is cos I want it to be the most modern treatment," Healy explained to Q magazine. "I felt, 'What is the most modern statement?' and it was Greta Thunberg. We made this insane long shot where we reached out to her and she got back to me. Within five days I was in Stockholm and we'd done it."

At Thunberg's request, proceeds from the track go to the grassroots climate change movement Extinction Rebellion.
