According to his mum he is!

Following the release of their fourth record ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’ earlier this year, it seems like The 1975’s Matty Healy might have been busy at work on a solo project!

Speaking to OK Magazine, his mum, Denice Welch seemed to spill the beans that he’s cooking up his own stuff saying, “Matthew is working on a solo project. I’ve got two boys in the entertainment industry. It’s a nightmare but I’m proud of them both. I’m very lucky that my boys have both got good heads on their shoulders.”

It’s something that Matty hinted at himself in an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music earlier this year. “One thing that I know that we’re gonna do is that I’m doing a Matty record and George is doing a George record,” he said. “And we’re gonna produce each other’s records. So that’s gonna happen.”
