MATTY HEALY Responds After MAROON 5 Calls Out THE 1975 Over Similar Album Art
Hours ago, Maroon 5 took to Twitter to call out The 1975 over similarities of their new cover art to an old one of Kara’s Flowers, displaying each member in red, blue, green, and yellow boxes over a black background.
In case you didn’t know, Kara’s Flowers is Adam Levine’s former band together with Ryan Dusick and current Maroon 5 members Jesse Carmichael and Mickey Madden from 1994 to 2001.
Maroon 5 tweeted, “Hey @the1975, you guys big ‘Kara’s Flowers’ fans?” while showing the apparently similar Kara’s Flowers 1997 album cover for The Fourth World and The 1975’s new and unofficial cover art.
It didn’t take long for The 1975’s frontman Matty Healy to respond. “I don’t know what the f**k that is but I love that song about being in a phone box or whatever it is,” he wrote, seemingly poking fun at Maroon 5's 2012 hit song “Payphone” featuring Wiz Khalifa.

The tweet has recently been deleted, but here's a screenshot in case you haven't seen it.
Another group Hot Chelle Rae joined this hot Twitter conversation, hilariously showing off their album art for Whatever, released in 2011.

Meanwhile, a fan also cited another cover art, and it's the poster of the 1995 film Kids, which of course, has a similar design to the aforementioned artworks.

Yesterday, Lauv also took to Twitter to share his sincere apology to Matty Healy after finding out that his newly released music video for "Tattoos Together" has intense resemblance to The 1975's "Sincerity Is Scary."
