McFly’s Tom Fletcher is set to release a new solo album, titled ‘Space Band’, alongside his new children’s book of the same name.

I say solo album – it’s produced by McFly’s Dougie Poynter and his backing band on the album is made up of Poynter plus Danny Jones and Harry Judd. So, the other members of McFly. The new book is also based on Fletcher’s own experiences of being in the band McFly. So this whole project is quite McFly heavy.

‘Space Band The Album’, which is set for release next month at the same time as the novel, will feature eight songs based on storylines from the book, which promises to be “a hit with McFly fans as well as offering children a unique, multi-dimensional reading experience”.

“I am over the moon to be bringing two of my biggest passions together in this joint ‘Space Band’ release”, says Fletcher. “I had a blast bringing the story to life, recording songs from the book with life-long friends and bandmates, McFly”.

“‘Space Band’ is a really personal book for me”, he adds, “inspired by my own experiences of being in a band, so this album has brought it even closer to my heart. It’s been amazing to share it with Danny, Harry and Dougie and we can’t wait to take readers interstellar when we lift off this October”.

The first single from the album, ‘Nothing Rhymes With Sausage’, will hit streaming services tomorrow. Fun times. Bossage?
