FANS are chomping at the bit for McFly’s first album in almost a decade.
Here’s what we know so far about the four-piece’s upcoming The Lost Songs…
When is McFly’s new album The Lost Songs going to be released?
On January 5, 2019, Dougie confirmed on Sappenin’ Podcast that McFly would be breaking their musical hiatus with a new album this year.
On September 9, 2019 the band sparked speculation that they’re getting ready for a comeback with cryptic video on Twitter.
The 18 second clip reveals a flashing image of a microphone and was posted on Monday night, marking the band’s first tweet in over a year.
The same microphone is also their profile photo on Twitter.
However an official release date for the hotly-anticipated album is yet to be confirmed.
The Lost Songs will be the boys’ first studio album in nine years – since their last one Above The Noise in 2010.
What have McFly said about The Lost Boys album?
Speaking earlier in the year, Dougie Poynter said: ‘McFly will at least start writing by the summer and I can’t wait.
“I love that band and I love the guys. It’s awesome.”
Speaking to Sun Online earlier this month, Dougie refused to rule out an impending McFly comeback, teasing: “I can neither confirm or deny… Which means anything you want.”
He added: “McFly is my identity, I have been Dougie from McFly longer than I haven’t, I love that and it never gets boring. It’s good to know that people still care – I like that.”
Otherwise the boys have remained pretty cryptic about their upcoming album, leaving fans desperate for more info.
Are McFly going to do a full tour?
Yes they are.
McFly are planning a full tour after they’ve done their major comeback show at The O2 on November 20, 2019.
Asked if a tour is on the cards, Tom said: “Yeah, definitely! I kind of feel like touring is an inevitable part of being in a band.
“Something we all love – touring in the past for us has been the thing we look forward to the most and something I can’t wait to show my kids what that’s like.
“Coming down to the venues and hanging out, and seeing catering, the dressing room, coming on stage for the soundcheck … That’s going to be an amazing new experience for us all who have kids.
Performing live in front of your fans is the best experience ever, with your best friends on stage – you cannot beat that experience. I can’t wait for that. But The O2 first.’

Why had McFly not toured for so long?
The boys talked to The Sun about tensions that caused them to fall apart – and blamed teaming up with Busted for their rift.
Harry said: “After McBusted our personal friendships were at their worst. It was tough for three years.
“Then eventually our manager bashed our heads together and said I’ve booked The O2 on November 20th – whose in?”
