McFly went into Radio One yesterday to meet 'Grimmy' (Jesus Christ is that the best he can do) and play their new single, 'One For The Radio'.
Does it have a chorus? Yes it does:
"So here's another song for the radio
And here's another line from the heart
So don't pretend you hate us as you sing along
Cos we all look the same in the dark"
It is, then, 'a song for the haterz'. Or maybe the "all look the same in the dark" bit means it's a song about one of McFly accidentally being blown off by a man.
Either way, one would imagine that the track's title started life with the band having a strop about their old label, Island, wanting radio-friendly hits from the band. It would come as no surprise: it's shocking sometimes how record labels expect mainstream bands to turn in mainstream hits.
As it turns out 'One For The Radio' is the band's best single in years with a fresh sound that should bring an end to a slightly unhappy period in the band's career — recently it seems that every McFly single release has somehow been totally indistinguishable from the last. Quick: name the band's last five singles. No? Three of them were bloody Number Ones!
'One For The Radio' is out next month, followed by the new album…
