Earlier this month, The 1975 covered Take That’s ‘A Million Love Songs’ while performing in Radio 1’s Live Lounge.

“It’s funny that, isn’t it?” frontman Matty Healy said when asked about the band’s choice of cover. “I’d have loved to have done something like what you’d normally do… like a Taylor Swift [song] or a Harry Styles or a Ariana Grande or someone like that – someone who’s really happening right now.

“But I think the only song that I’d heard in ages where I thought, ‘You know what? If Donny Hathaway had said that, or Al Green had said that…’. I’d be like, ‘Woah – that’s really legit.

“Not to shade Gary Barlow; I love Gary Barlow as a songwriter. But that song’s like my life – that’s all I do, is write love songs and I’m still here like the rest of us… still trying to figure it out.”
