McFly have released their newest single Growing Up from their upcoming album, Young Dumb Thrills. The new track features Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus. This is the first announcement of any collaborations for the band’s new album. The song definitely took a lot of influence from Mark Hoppus and will take you back to the early 2000’s pop-punk days.
This is the second single off the new album. Happiness was released on July 30th. Band member Danny Jones announced the first single in an Instagram post, saying; “Making this album has been the most fun, open minded and exciting time we’ve ever had in the studio! So happy to have my boys back and making music. I’ve missed you lads @tomfletcher @harryjudd @idougahole”
This news comes after it was announced that McFly had signed their first record deal with BMG since 2009. McFly’s new album Young Dumb Thrills, will be released on November 13th. It is the first studio album from the band since they reunited after a seven-year hiatus. It has been previously reported that the band took the break after there was tension among the band members as they all took on solo projects.
Speaking to the BBC, band member Tom Fletcher said; “There was a strong possibility McFly would never happen again. We genuinely didn’t know how to get back on track.” Luckily, band manager Matt Fletcher booked a reunion gig at the 02 in London without telling the band, giving them the push, they needed to come back together.
