The 1975 frontman Matty Healy has publicly apologised to his mum, Coronation Street‘s Denise Welch, for his recent battle with heroin addiction.

Healy previously revealed that he checked into a Barbados rehab clinic ahead of recording The 1975’s upcoming album ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships‘ – with the honest admission coming after he referenced his drug battles on comeback single ‘Give Yourself A Try’.

Speaking in a new interview with Q, Healy said that heroin made him ‘a worse writer, person, friend, partner [and] son’.

“I just want to apologise to my mum,” he said. “You can’t be a parent and have that kind of thing [his drug addiction] out there and not think, “Well, why didn’t I… You think it’s your fault, d’you know what I mean? When it’s completely not.”

In 2016, Healy wrote ‘I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It’ track ‘She Lays Down’ about Welch’s battle with post-natal depression.

In the interview, he also spoke of Mac Miller’s death. The late rapper passed away in September after he was found unresponsive at his San Fernando Valley home. He is believed to have died from an apparent overdose. He was 26 years old.

Healy said he knew Miller ‘a little bit’ after they met a festival in Australia in 2014, adding that the news of his death ‘really upset me.’

“It’s just sad, man. He was a good person. Incredibly talented,” he said.

Last month, Healy revealed how equine therapy helped him to beat his heroin habit.

“One of my therapists there asked did I want to do equine therapy,” he told NME. “And I thought, because I’m a very cynical English person who doesn’t believe in energy and vibes and is a sceptic at heart, I thought, fucking hell, what am I going to do? Stand next to a horse for two weeks?

“So I’m stood there, and the first day, to be honest, I am stood next to a horse, and I’m thinking, ‘What a fucking dickhead I am, stood with a horse thinking that I’m going to have a profound moment’. Then three days in, my therapist takes me into this round pen and tells me, ‘Breathe,’ shows me this thing where I’m spinning a rope near the horse, and he basically teaches me how to get the horse to trust me in about five minutes.”

Healy continued: “And when it happened, and the horse came up to me and put his thing next to me, and he was just with me for the whole day, feeling safer with me than not, it was the most profound experience I’ve ever had, because I just got it. In that time, and probably if I went back now, I cared a million times more in a human way about the approval of that horse than I did anybody else.”
