The boys have often spoken about their ‘change in direction’ and for the new music they have taken inspiration from different artists.

Speaking to The Sun, who branded Party Girl a ‘a slice of futuristic R&B’, Danny Jones said: ‘Our influences have been people like Bruce Springsteen and The Beatles, but this time we took inspiration from artists we’d never tapped into.’

The boys worked on the new music with R&B producer Dallas Austin.

‘Dallas introduced us to Patron tequila. He almost killed us on a couple of occasions – it’s lethal. He also really likes strip joints, so we’d hammer the tequila and then head off to these clubs.’ said Tom.

‘One night we ended up going round Elton John’s house in Atlanta for dinner with Dallas.’

‘It was a great time.’

The Sun also mentioned two songs, Shine A Light and ballad I’ll Be Your Man, which the boys worked on with Taio Cruz.
