Update: There's communication...

Lauv has shared his new single 'Tattoos Together'.

The American pop artist's debut album - proper - is incoming, and the new material is coming thick and fast.

New single 'Tattoos Together' is out now, and it comes adorned with a video that has a definite link to a Clash favourite.

Visually 'Tattoos Together' definitely recalls The 1975's clip for 'Sincerity Is Scary' - it's a street scene, there's dancing, and the colour palette is similar.

Is it a homage? Is it irony? Or is Lauv being sincere in doffing his cap to another pop behemoth?

He comments: "i love this video even more cuz it just makes you smile and then BAM u get to the end and ur like whaaaaat..."

Check it out now.

UPDATE:

It's a coincidence, but Lauv has reached out to Matty Healy - and the 1975 singer isn't too fussed.

Here's the missive:

Lauv's debut album '~how i’m feeling~' is out on March 6th.
