Maroon 5 accuse The 1975 of plagiarising artwork, Matty Healy responds
The Adam Levine-fronted group took to Twitter to comment on the similarities between their 1997 album ‘The Fourth World’ (when the band went by the name Kara’s Flowers) and The 1975’s promotional artwork for Spotify for their new single, ‘Me & You Together Song’.
“Hey @the1975, you guys big ‘Kara’s Flowers’ fans?” the official Maroon 5 Twitter account tweeted, before Healy responded.
“I don’t know what the fuck that is but I love that song about being in a phone box or whatever it is,” the frontman replied, poking fun at Maroon 5’s song ‘Payphone’.
