The 1975 released Notes On A Conditional Form at the beginning of the month, which was supported by the single “If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know).” The Strokes also released a new album this year titled The New Abnormal, their first LP in seven years.
Vampire Weekend released three bonus tracks from their 2019 studio album Father of The Bride this year, “Lord Ullin’s Daughter” with Jude Law, “I Don’t Think Much About Her No More” and “Houston Dubai.”
