Pop supergroup McFly return to the musical spotlight with brand new single ‘Love Is Easy’, followed by the release of their Greatest Hits album ‘Memory Lane’ on November 26th via Island records.
Without a doubt McFly are one of the most significant pop groups of the last ten years. Their albums ‘Room on The 3rd Floor’, ‘Wonderland’, ‘Motion In The Ocean’, ‘Radio:ACTIVE’ and ‘Above The Noise’ have sold 10 million copies worldwide. They’ve had seven UK No.1 singles, five top 10 albums and numerous sell out tours. 2011 saw a double reality win as McFly took over UK TV screens with Harry winning ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ and Dougie ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’.
And it doesn’t stop there. With over 3 million Twitter followers collectively, the band solidified their online presence when they launched their unique and unrivalled ‘Super City’ website in 2010. The site offers unprecedented access to the band worldwide, uniting their fan base which stretches from the Far East to Australia to Brazil and South America.
Now McFly are ready to release all of their huge hits on one album. ‘Memory Lane’ features every must have McFly single, from their early smashes ‘Five Colours In Her Hair’ , ‘Obviously’ and Chris Moyle’s favourite ‘Star Girl’, to chart hits such as ‘All About You’, ‘One For The Radio’ ‘and Party Girl’, alongside the band’s recent and biggest selling single ‘Shine A Light’ Feat. Taio Cruz. The album also features two special demo versions of ‘That Girl’ and ‘Obviously’ both of which were the first tracks the band recorded together and are been previously unreleased. The collection is also available as a Deluxe edition which includes a second CD featuring 21 rare and unreleased tracks.
In addition the album features three new tracks. Leading the way is brand new single ‘Love Is Easy’. Written and produced by the band, the track has an acoustic feel, reminiscent of early McFly hits. Instinctive sweet vocals mix with a care-free catchy chorus which you can’t help but tap a toe and sing along to!
Each member of McFly is now major star in their own right. Harry stepped out from behind the drums and showed his dancing finesse during Strictly Come Dancing, eventually being crowned the winner, whilst Dougie was crowned King of the Jungle when he took part in the 2011 series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. Danny is a successful club DJ, who is also writing and producing a dance album alongside his production work for McFly, whilst Tom has lent his song writing talents to a total of TEN UK No.1 singles, and has written several songs for One Direction.
Earlier this year McFly completed a massive 26 date sell-out UK tour, their biggest yet. In September they performed two shows at New York’s Gramercy Theatre and LA’s ROXY, both of which sold out in minutes and crashed the Ticketweb site upon release.
With a fan base that now stretches around the world, McFly continue to reinvent themselves and succeed beyond their own expectations.
