Fresh from the acclaimed success of their single ‘Happiness’, McFly give fans another taste of their upcoming album with the release of their new single ‘Tonight Is The Night’.
Written by the band with Jason Perry and Jordan Cardy, the track is one of the more melancholy and reflective songs on the record.
Harry Judd says: “In a way ‘Tonight Is The Night’ is the perfect summary of the album because it’s got this classic Tom melody but with Danny production flourishes and great harmonies and hints of [McFly’s 2006 album] Motion in the Ocean”.
McFly – Tonight Is The Night
Listen to content by McFly.
‘Tonight Is The Night’ is the second single to be taken from McFly’s upcoming new album ‘Young Dumb Thrills’ which is released on 13th November 2020. The album will be their first studio album release since ‘Above The Noise’ in 2010.
Having signed their first record deal since 2009 with BMG, McFly recently released their first single in seven years, ‘Happiness’. The infectious new track introduces a “festival vibe” to McFly’s classic pop-rock sound and was A-listed at Radio 2. The band also performed the track on both Britain’s Got Talent and Radio 2’s Live At Home.
When they were busy becoming one of the most successful chart acts of their era, racking up 19 top ten hits including seven number ones in just under a decade, McFly were known for being a rock-solid musical unit. A line they’d say in interviews – “It’s not always easy, but McFly’s here forever” – became embraced by fans as a kind of unofficial band mantra.
Now McFly have spent 2020 recording a new album that sounds “naturally and quintessentially us”.
As they prepare for their exciting next chapter, McFly remain hungry and ambitious – clearly they haven’t racked up seven gold and platinum albums over the years without putting in some hard graft. But at the same time, they know precisely where their priorities lie going forward. “We want as many people as possible to hear our new music and when we can, we want to go out and play for our fans,” Judd says. “But for us, nothing will ever beat being able to hang out with your mates and make amazing music that you love. For us, that’s what McFly is always going to be about.”
