The 1975 Parody Miley Cyrus, Harry Styles, Elvis In New Video

(Radio.com) The 1975 have released the video for their funky song "Love Me." The track is the first single from their forthcoming second album, I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it.

The colorful parody video was directed by Diane Martel and features the band performing alongside of cardboard cut-outs of celebs including a very young Miley Cyrus, Harry Styles, Elvis Presley, Ed Sheeran and more.

According to a press release the clip delivers the "post-ironic self-indulgent performance parodies rock and roll in the digital age and the self-constructed mythology of the iPhone generation."

Frontman Matthew Healy released the following statement about the video: 'With 'Love Me' we wanted to capture the neon-hued enthralling acquisition of success and excess, the screaming momentum, the sexy daze. Everything is REDICULOUS! But, is it? The only art worth any investment is art that makes one feel personally addressed. A simple truth, or set of truths, that galvanises an awareness and passion within an individual and in doing so immerses the individual into a sense of shared experience and community founded upon that same personal connection or experience. Too many artists care what others think. We are for the 'community'! A non-linear observation on everything that has been and what will become. A lack of understanding of the world we are living in. The post-ironic notion of the modern world. Selfie mythologizing. Creating how we consume. Fragments of culture. Not settling for what you're given. WE'VE JUST COME TO REPRESENT A DECLINE IN THE STANDARDS OF WHAT WE ACCEPT." Watch the video here.
