Fall Out Boy Big Up Jay-Z
Jay-Z meets Fall Out Boy. Whaddya call it? Emop?
Fall Out Boy have spoken out about working with hip hop supremo Jay-Z on their new album, 'Infinity On High'.
Jigga worked with the oft-described-as-Emo boys on a track called 'Car Crash' and he must be a big fan taking time out of a schedule which includes promoting his own new album - and possibly getting hitched to Beyonce!
FOB guitarist Joe Trohman told MTV, "(He's) a hard man to lock down No matter how good friends you are with someone, if theyre really busy (you) let them go do their thing and if they have the time to come and make a cameo, that's awesome. (And) we know the guy is real busy, especially with his new record being out and stuff."
Singer Patrick added, "Were awesome with Jay - theres just a lot of mutual respect there."
The Jigga man, who's quite keen on dipping his toe in the indie rock pool now and again, seems to have had an influence on the boys' overall sound too.
FOB say their new offering is influenced by R&B and classic rock with an emphasis on piano, strings and horns.
'Infinity On High' is out on February 5.
