The 1975 frontman Matty Healy has put his hand up to produce Taylor Swift's next album, saying he has the perfect idea for the US popstar's next record. 

Appearing on a new episode of The Green Room with Neil Griffiiths podcast this week, the UK singer said he recently discussed the idea with Apple Beats 1 show host Zane Lowe, who also suggested Swift could do an LP similar to Bruce Springsteen's 1982 album, Nebraska.

"I was like, 'I was gonna say Blue by Joni Mitchell, why did you say Nebraska 'cause that's exactly the same kind of thing?'" Healy told host Neil Griffiths.

"Taylor Swift doing a 'It's me on an acoustic guitar' record? I can’t think of a record that would sell more than that.

"Like, Taylor Swift’s intimate return to country. It's like, of course you’d wanna produce that!

"She’s [probably] gonna sit on that idea, but Taylor, if you ever want someone to help you set up the mics for your acoustic record, just so you know, I’m there.”

Swift's latest album, Lover, peaked at #1 around the world, including the US, UK and Australia following its release last month, while The 1975 are gearing up for the release of their new record, Notes On A Conditional Form, due out on 21 February next year.

The 1975's tour continues in Adelaide tonight, while they are also confirmed to return to Australia in early 2020 to headline Laneway Festival. For more details, check out theGuide.
