McFly Premieres New Song “God of Rock & Roll” on BBC Radio 2
London-based pop band McFly, consisting of Tom Fletcher (vocals/guitar), Danny Jones (vocals/guitar), Dougie Poynter (bass) and Harry Judd (drums), premiered a new song “God of Rock & Roll” on BBC Radio 2 The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show.
The song is the second single off of their upcoming seventh studio album “Power to Play”, which is set to be released on June 9, 2023.
The track was written by Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter, Harry Judd, and Steve Battelle. Produced by Danny Jones.
The song is accompanied by the music video.
The band said of the song, “Once we had landed on the fact that we were going to do 80s rock, there was just something in it that had such a McFlyness within it. High concept, guitars front and centre, colourful. It's all the things we have always loved about music and what we do with this band. It's a party rock song at its core, but its seed was that if there was a god of rock and roll, we would undoubtedly be worshipping him. A lot of that came from going to shows ourselves. We all went to see Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer last year and seeing so many people had come to the same place to enjoy rock music was incredible. Rock music celebrates life and having fun, and it feels like we all got deprived of that for such a long time.”
- The new album comprises 11-track, produced by Danny Jones and Jason Perry.
The band embarks on POWER TO PLAY TOUR 2023 in support of the album. The tour kicks off at O2 Academy in Bristol on October 23rd and will wrapp up at Rock City in Nottingham on November 22, 2023.
Also, they will play at Alexandra Palace in London on 27 October, 2023.
