A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships is the third studio album by English pop rock band The 1975, released on 30 November 2018 by Dirty Hit and Polydor Records. It was produced by band members Matthew Healy and George Daniel, and it's the band's first album to not be produced by regular collaborator Mike Crossey.
Following the release of the band's second album, I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It, Healy announced the album with a working title of Music for Cars, sharing the name with the band's third extended play, although it was later clarified that Music for Cars was an "era" for the band, rather than a single album.
A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships was promoted by the campaign for "Music for Cars" and is the former of two albums released within the era; the latter, Notes on a Conditional Form, is expected to be released in May 2019. The band have released five singles from the album: "Give Yourself a Try", "Love It If We Made It", "TooTimeTooTimeTooTime", "Sincerity Is Scary" and "It's Not Living (If It's Not with You)". Upon release, the album received critical acclaim, with some critics comparing the album to Radiohead's OK Computer. The band will embark on a world tour starting in January 2019. The album debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart.
