McFly and McDonald's?

McFLY have shelved the release of their new album for over two months while they thrash out a groundbreaking deal with McDonald’s.

The rock boyband had intended to issue Radio:Active at the end of June — but it will now see the light of day in mid-September.

They were forced to tear up their plans after the burger chain entered into lucrative negotiations to promote their new material.

A source said: "It was all systems go for a summer release.

"Promotional schedules had been drawn up and an elaborate launch strategy was put in place.

"However, everything hit the buffers as soon as McDonald’s expressed an interest in a unique partnership.

"It cost the lads a pretty penny to bin everything at such a late stage but they hope, with the fast food firm’s muscle behind them, they’ll reap the benefits in the long term."

The boys — TOM FLETCHER, DANNY JONES, DOUGIE POYNTER and HARRY JUDD — ditched major label Island in favour of establishing their own independent imprint Super Records.

It’s an interesting McNugget of music news, this.

The youngsters are following RADIOHEAD and PAUL McCARTNEY by turning their backs on traditional record company practice.

Last year Macca left the ailing EMI to go into partnership with coffee shop chain Starbucks and THOM YORKE’s outfit ditched Parlophone to issue their In Rainbows album for no fixed price on the internet.

The terms of McFly’s unique marketing strategy with the home of the Big Mac are still to be finalised.

But it will include a free download of one of their songs and their impish faces being plastered over the chain’s 1,250 UK outlets.

I’m one of the few journalists in the country to have heard the material and it’s surprisingly impressive.

The lyrics showcase a more grown-up direction while the music hints at a much heavier new sound. Or should that be meatier?

Another source; McFly Malaysia

According to Digital Spy website said, McFly band have reportedly signed a promotional deal with McDonald's. Read the news below.

McFly sign deal with McDonald's?


McFly have reportedly signed a promotional deal with McDonald's. According to The Sun, the pop group have delayed the release of their new album Radio:Active to work with the fast food chain. The LP was scheduled for release in June, but is now expected to come out in September. "It was all systems go for a summer release," said a source. "Promotional schedules had been drawn up and an elaborate launch strategy was put in place. "However, everything hit the buffers as soon as McDonald’s expressed an interest in a unique partnership." The boyband's deal with the firm allegedly includes their image being placed on McDonald's products around its 1,250 UK outlets.

I personally don't think it's a bad idea!
THEY MIGHT EVEN REACH OUR MCDONALD'S OUTLETS.

True, true Razz

The things we do for them. *sigh*
And what do we get in return?! Their album release in September?! (even if it's not confirmed yet, I'm pretty sad.)

I can't wait for them to be famous here.

Hahaha. I hope they release it here since WORLDWIDE includes us.

I don't want them to go overly popular here though. Just popular-enough-to-get-them-here popular. Coz them being poular means MORE competition for them which I do not want because I don't wanna share them hahahaha!
