McFly & Taio Cruz Tell MTV About Their Collaboration
Influenced by Keane...
Thursday, September 2, 2010 - 16:11
The group have been working with a bunch of new producers to adopt a more US sounding dance-pop sound. Tom from the band told us:
"Taio got it straight away, what we were trying to do. We showed him our idead and we found somewhere to collide in the middle and find somewhere new."
In a separate interview with us Cruz told us about their work together. "I went over to Tom's house with Dougie and Danny and we had an idea for a record," he said. "And we made a track called Save Me and then we did Shine A Light."
Taio added: “I listen to a lot of Keane so there's a Keane influence and a little bit of dance music influence.”
McFly release their new single Party Girl this coming Monday with a full album due later in the year. But according to Tom the new direction won't alienate their old fans.
“Essentially it's still the same pop sound as day one,” Tom told MTV. "We've just tried to push ourselves. And it's been an amazing experience.”
