McFly considered rap
McFly nearly featured a rap on their new album.
Although none of the 'Party Girl' rockers is keen on rapping over their own tracks, they revealed they were considering having a rap breakdown in one of the tracks they recorded for their new album 'Above the Noise', with US hop hip producer Dallas Austin.
Guitarist Tom Fletcher told BANG Showbiz: "A rap? Well, not with us performing it. If we featured a rapper, we could do that. I'd like us to do something with Tinie Tempah, that would be cool.
"Dallas did do a rap on one of our tracks. We did a thing on the album, that was really cool."
The band - who have used hip hop and pop producers on the album to create a different, more synthesiser led sound than their earlier, more rock material for their latest album - also said they enjoyed being in the studio in Atlanta, in the Southern US, because they were anonymous and there were no distractions.
Speaking at the BT Digital Music Awards, where the group performed last week, drummer Harry Judd added: "We went to Atlanta where Dallas is based, it's a great place to go and work, we've never released anything over there and never promoted anything, so nobody knows who we are over there. "It's purely for recording and hanging out with Dallas it was incredible. There's a good feeling out in America."
The band, which also includes Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones, said that didn't, however, stop them partying.
Tom added: "It's great being there with Dallas too, because everybody knows who Dallas is over there, he's a big celebrity - so he knows how to get things together.
"We went out quite a lot because we were all in a hotel, so we didn't have to go too far. And we were all up for it, we had nothing else to do but go out."Posted on 4 Oct 2010 16:30 to category : Music News
