McFly have revealed that their third album Motion in the Ocean was inspired by Queen.

The group, whose greatest hits LP Memory Lane is out this week, admitted that they wanted to take a “fun and poppy route” on the record.

“It was a bit of a reaction to [second album] Wonderland. We made the record in our new flat and produced our own demos. We didn’t leave the house for a week and a half and wrote the whole thing.

“We intentionally wanted to do stuff that was more fun and poppy. There was also quite a strong Queen influence throughout it.”

Explaining the meaning behind the title, Dougie Poynter admitted: “The title came from someone telling us about their small d*ck. He said, ‘it’s not the size of your boat, it’s the motion in the ocean’.”

Danny Jones noted that there are “a lot of fan favourites” on the LP, adding: “There’s a song called ‘Little Joanna’ on there, which remains one of our most complex songs. We’ve never played it live for that reason!”

McFly previously revealed that they went through a “rebellious” stage on their second album.
