News broke in September that British band McFly were reuniting after not releasing new music together in several years. The band took a break a few years back, each of them working on individual careers in writing, singing and dancing as well as starting their own families. The announcement of the reunion also came with the announcement of new music and a UK tour.
McFly (Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter) released their first studio album, Room on the 3rd Floor, in 2004. They followed that with four more studio albums, the last of which was released in 2010.
When the news of a reunion was released, the band also announced that they’d be releasing a new song every week leading up to the start of their UK tour. The songs would come from their new album The lost Songs. McFly recorded all of the tracks on the album prior to taking a break and the songs were never released, until now that is. The first two songs were released the week after the announcement of the reunion and another song has been released every weekend since. Thus far McFly have released ‘Red’, ‘Touch the Rain’, ‘ We Were Only Kids’, ‘Hyperion’ and ‘Dare You to Move’ off The Lost Songs album.
‘Break Me’, the latest of The Lost Songs tracks was released October 13th and is available on most streaming sites including Amazon Music, iTunes and Spotify along with all previously released songs. As mentioned, all of the songs were recorded prior to the band’s break and have not been altered since. The band made it a point to let fans know that these songs are in their original form and are the exact songs they recorded many years ago.
McFly’s UK tour begins April 26, 2020 in Liverpool, England and will continue mid-May. Tickets for the tour can be found on Ticketmaster.
