Matt Healy spoke to Rolling Stone about the very long album title The 1975 picked for their upcoming LP, I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It.

We were kind of fearful of certain things, and we made the decision that the only thing that was going to remedy that was to make a record that was just about the truth and not about what we thought we should be saying. Because of that, I just decided early on that that was the name of the album for no other reason besides that I really liked it."
