More McFly music leaks from new album

Pride of Britain Awards - ArrivalsSeveral songs have leaked from McFly’s upcoming new album, and some of the fans aren’t happy with what they’re hearing.

The band have teased fans with talk of a new musical direction for months now, but a lot of the fans think they’ve gone a bit too mainstream in an attempt to appeal to more people.

‘I’ve heard the songs, and they’re not by the McFly I know and love’ one fan told us.

The high-quality clips are all over Youtube and two in particular, Foolish and Here Comes The Storm, seem to be the ones that the fans are finding a bit too different to McFly’s usual music.

You know that new sound you’ve been waiting for? Well listen to this.

Speaking of Here Comes The Storm, another fan said: ‘Do they think they’re JLS now?’

Rumour has it that the songs have leaked after fans hacked into email accounts – which we don’t condone. We all want to hear the songs but it takes away all the fun if you don’t wait for the album.

Anyway, Play.com have published a release date for the new album – 23d August 2010. (This date may change).

Have you heard any of the new music? What do you think?

  • None of these songs are ready yet. So…there's nothing for us, McFLY fans, talk about!

  • I haven´t heard any song from the new Mcalbum.. Gonna wait because they deserve it. This is my opinion. They work hard for us and they deserve respect.
    I received some comments about the new songs saying doesn´t like, please!! don´t listen to more songs, they do not deserve this, they are very excited and they want to be a surprise for us. Such comments offend me.
    Firstly if you´re a true fan, you shouldn´t hear the song until the album go out, and you can´t comment about the new album, because that isn´t finish yet. When the album go out, you can comment.. and if you love McFly and they are your live, you always support them.. no matter if they change their style.
    you should ask a question yourself, are you a true McFly fan? because if you say that the new McAlbum is bad you´re not a true fan! if you´re a true fan, you always will be with McFly and you support them. If you're a fan, why you not support them? they are very excited.. please!! if you´re a fan, don´t disappoint them. Don´t listen their songs until the album go out, don´t say that the new album is bad, the new album will be AWESOME!
    If they say it, I´m trust in them because they make me smile every day when I'm sad, their songs always help me and they deserve it!
    I give an advice to fans, Don´t fall into temptation! wait! wait! wait!.. you´ll feel better when you hear the Mcalbum, being a surprise!

    i would like saying one things to guys.. @tommcfly @dannymcfly @mcflyharry @dougiemcfly don´t worry for the bad comments about the new album!the TRUE fans will support you FOREVER! i´m sure that the album will be awesome!

    this is my opinion.. @merymcfly

  • no one can actually say they are rubbish if their not finished yet, me myselfhave not listened to any songs because i think thats disrespectful to the mcfly boys, people thats have listened are not really fans! and do they think their jls haha mcfly willnever be or want to be jls!!! i agree with both mery and larissa, they are obviously real fans :)

  • i am a real fan and i dont like it! it sounds nothing like the mcfly i love. just because you are a mcfly fan dusent mean you have 2 like everything they do. :(

  • i hope they are not ready :(

  • im not saying you so, im just saying that the songs aint finished yet so yeah their not going to sound like mcfly, its just disrespectful towards mcfly if you listen tbh :/

  • McFlyGirl

    Well, I've heared Foolish, Here Comes The Storm and Hotel on a Hill.
    And I think Hotel on a Hill is a bit mcflyish…But Foolish and Here Comes The Storm is like JLS.
    That's not McFly anymore, I think.

    The songs do sound very different! But I really like them! But everyone has to understand that they're not finished yet, so they shouldn't judge them to harshly. And even though “Here Comes the Storm” and “Foolish” sound different, “Hotel on A Hill” sounds more old McFly-ish so they shouldn't worry. And I appreciate McFly for taking a risk. They're music would be boring if it was pretty much the same all time time. Change is nice. I think the album is going to be epic! :)

  • I've heard all 3 of the new songs and to be perfectly honest I love them! Yes it is wrong that the songs have been leaked but how exactly does it make you a bad fan for listening to them? I've been a fan for over 6years and just because I've listened to them doesn't make me a bad one. And to be fair its not half as bad as the people who supposedly hacked into email / facebook accounts just to listen to the album!!

    Also you can't exactly go around saying you hate the song already, cos chances are that these arent the final and finished product, they are most likely demoes. If I was you I'd wait until the album or even a single is out and then make opinions based on that…

  • All the fans thinks the same… it isn't the style of McFly, I really hate Here Comes The Storm, but Foolish is a good song, but it isn't McFly. We have to wait for the another songs from the album and say if McFly change totally their style that we love.

    I like it! I especially love 'Foolish'. It is still McFly! They have been telling us on twitter that they are doing a few new and different things but it is STILL McFLY! I think that the 2 songs that have been leaked are awesome. I guess it just depends whether or not your a true McFly fan. Everyone has their differences I guess. Not all of their songs are going to be the exact same! Get over it. They have spent a lot of time working on this upcoming album and it's by McFly and for us! Thank them and accept it! :)

    Lets face it. Music has changed over the years. If McFly were to release the same style as One For The Radio and Star Girl this time round, the music industry wouldn't care, McFly wouldn't be able to promote it, and then we would have no McFly at all.
    (I'm not saying previous McFly is crap)

    I think they are being very brave, and time will tell if it pays off. But I don't think they had the option of releasing another Radio:Active/Motion in The Ocean style album. Its this or nothing.

    Personally I frigging love old McFly, and I the couple of new songs Ive heard are really good too.
    I will support them whatever they release, if I want to hear old McFly, I simply have to turn my ipod on.

    And my opinion on listening to the new songs is this…
    I personally have never listened to a leaked McFly song of any kind before today, but I am sick of waiting, yes I know we are waiting so that they can make an amazing unrushed, unstressed album, but listening to Tom talk about it on twitter 24/7 is making me annoyed waiting. Its nearly 2 years since we last had any new McFly, so I think I deserve a sneak peak.
    But I hate whoever hacks into McFly's accounts or whatever they did to get this music.

    I'm from the U.S. and I LOVE their new sound. Yeah it's not the same, more upbeat and pop-ish, but it's still McFly and I absolutely love it. They're still the same boys we all love, they're just trying something new and I for one, like the new direction yet I still like their older sounds.

    i absolutely LOVE it! i really hope they plan on bringing that sound over here to the US. i think that they're trying to make more American sounding music and then try to release that to the radios and get big over here, and then change back to their usual sound.

    sad that 'fans' has to do that.
    the boys don't want us to listen to unfinished songs, as they've told us via twitter.

    i think those fans which published the songs are not real fans. they just couldn't wait a few months!!!!
    that feeling we get when the CD is out, and we get to listen to a dozen of songs McFly made FOR US we've never lsiten before will be gone now.
    i personally didn't hear any of the songs. i don't think is fair to the guys, and it isn't fair for me either. i am one of those girls that get all hiperactive when the CD is out, and listen to it about a hundred times to know the lyrics by hard the very first day i get it.

    the one or the ones that haked Tom's email aren't McFly fans. nor are those who published stolen music.

    I've only heard a clip of the song that Dallas played on ustream. I don't think it's fair to leak the songs, because the band will probably want everybody to hear the final versions because we don't know if the songs that have been leaked are final versions. The boys might still want to do a bit of tweaking with the songs. Personally, I want to wait for the album. I love hearing the new stuff that McFly come out with. I think I will like the new stuff, because I've never not liked a song of theirs before. I think the hackers should stop what they're doing – it's not fair to the boys and to true fans who want the album to be a surprise.

    i am a massive Mcfly fan! they are basically my life :| i think it was wrong of the person who leaked the songs but i dont think people should be saying the fans that have heared them and dont like them arent true fans, tbh i dont really like them i feel terrible for saying this, but they arent finished yet so who knows they could be completely different! and i wll always love and support the guys no matter what! Anyone who thinks im not a true fan for this well they really dont know me, im the type that knows the exact time they were born and camps out for 2days to get tickets lol but i just prefer the old Mcfly, i don think they have to change to appeal to more people, cause they have us loyal fans who adore their music now! i cant wait for the album and the future of Mcfly :D <3

    I like how you actually defend yourself, and I know it's none of my business but it's outta curiosity…why'd you listen to their music? Personally I think it's wrong but I'd rather not judge if I don't know the back-up story ; )

  • KittyloverMel

    I 1000% agree with you…yes 1000%! Why? Becausee like you saaid being a fan means supporting who you're a fan of. I was soo close to falling into temptation but I said to myself:: “Even if the guys don't know me I know that they'll be disappointed at me for doing something that's technically wrong”. Temptation is a sin and we have to overcome it… there have been a few McSongs I haven't liked but I gave them time and learned to like them just like they are. Honestly I feel bad for the guys…working on something they are soo anxious about for so called “fans” to come and hack all their hard work. Personally I think the guilty ones here are the hackers…they are the true BAD fans..not so much the ones who simply listened, they have no mayor fault but whoever these hackers are, if any of you read this I just want to ask you one simple question and tell you something brief: WHY DID YOU DO THIS?!?!?!?!?!? DON'T YOU KNOW THE GUYS WANTED THIS TO BE A SURPRISE? ANYWAY I HOPE YOU FEEL “HAPPY” YOU'VE DISAPPOINTED McFLY

    I am on holiday when their album comes out and when i found out that their new songs were leaked i nearly burst with excitement and couldn't wait to hear them (that is a true fan). I will still buy their album as soon as i get back off my hols and i will buy every single in the 3 different cd's they release it as (which is what they normally do) so having a cheeky listen will not affect them at all. Yet if you want to wait that's fine too! But will exams and everything going on some fans might want to just have a bit of cheering up by listening to their new songs!

    there new songs are amazing and yes they are different to what mcfly usually write, but so what isn’t everyone aloud to change their style? i like mcfly because they are themselves and not trying to copy anyone or put on an act to impress people and the get more fans. they have their own stlye and it is clearly amazing so if you don’t like mcfly keep them out of your hating mouth and let fans enjoy their music without you tearing them down.
