The 1975 - The 1975 have written tracks for new album

The 1975 have written eight tracks they want on their second record.

The 'Chocolate' hitmakers are working on the follow-up to their 2013 number one self-titled debut record and plan to get into the studio next year and take some time off from touring to work on new material.

Frontman Matt Healy said: ''We have the laptop and loads of little demos knocking around.

''The first album was recorded in a little shed and the second one has been very much the same. I mean, garage, tour bus, there's not really that much difference but there are terrible acoustics in a garage.

''I can't dictate the concept of the second album now, because it will change so much.''

Matt has revealed the band have eight songs they are sure they want on the album and they plan to head into the studio in February and release the album by September next year.

He said: ''We won't do any festivals next year, we'll be recording an album.

''The first album was very open and everyone knew quite a lot about it. Whereas the next album won't be like that. It is going to be slightly about death and it is going to be slightly weird.''

The band - also made up of Ross MacDonald, Adam Hann and George Daniel - have just performed at Ibiza Rocks, Bushmills Live in northern Ireland and Isle of Wight recently but admit touring can take its toll and they're looking forward to a break.

Speaking at Bushmills Live, Matt told BANG Showbiz: ''Doing this whole tour as a band is quite new to us, making records isn't. We've been together more than 10 years.

''We've been touring for 18 months it's been pretty heavy.

''It subsides a little bit when you're nine or ten shows in but it's our reality now.''
