The All About You band are ready to begin writing tracks for their upcoming LP – after SCRAPPING a lot of new songs.
The 5 Colours In Her Hair pop rock band – made up of Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd – have kept fans waiting for the follow-up to 2010’s Above The Noise, but it’s finally time to get back to writing as a group.
After completing a record in Texas, the boys switched their focus to McBusted, putting out a self-titled album with pals James Bourne and Matt Willis before touring the UK as a six-piece.
However, they’re now ready to put the focus back on McFly and revealed to Mirror Celebs that they already have a plan in place.
Harry confirmed they will kick start work on the record over the next few months, with Tom adding: “New year, new album. We’ll start writing [in January].”
Fans hoping to listen to the elusive album six will have to wait a little longer, with the group explaining they will start writing from scratch for the new LP.
“We’ve got album songs that could be ready to go, we don’t want to take away that exciting part of being in a band,” Tom said.
“[But album six] was natural, it didn’t sound anything like Above The Noise… We recorded it live as much as possible, in one take… I imagine the next album will be mostly new songs.”
However, McFly – who confirmed the tracks from the scrapped album will most likely be released in some form – did reveal that fans have actually already heard a song from the Texas sessions.
Harry said: “One of the songs from album six ended up on the McBusted album, which was Getting It Out. We recorded it in Texas but then recorded it for the McBusted album.”
