Fall Out Boy hint at unlikely collaborations on new album 'Save Rock and Roll'
Bassist Pete Wentz promises "more exciting stuff" from new music
Fall Out Boy have hinted that their new album 'Save Rock And Roll' will feature two unlikely guest stars.
The band announced their return earlier this year and revealed new song 'My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)', which features rapper 2Chainz in the video. Frontman Patrick Stump has hinted that there are further guest stars set to appear on the forthcoming album, though he wouldn't name any specific artist names. "There are going to be a couple of guests. I think we're going to keep mum about it for now," he said in an interview backstage at the NBA All-Star Saturday Night
In a new interview with Billboard, bassist Pete Wentz went on to add: "Those are the last things that we're working out. I don't think all of the contracts have been signed yet. But I will say that if people are excited about the 2 Chainz idea, there's more exciting stuff."
Fall Out Boy's new album will be released in April, having been brought forward a month due to popular demand. Speaking about the audacious album title, Patrick Stump has said: "The first time I heard the title, I laughed because it was tongue-in-cheek. Then I thought about it some more and there's something real in it because I think rock and roll, when it becomes a traditionalist medium, loses itself. We forget that The Rolling Stones were paying attention to blues. Guns N’ Roses were wearing NWA hats. The reality is that rock and roll isn't on the radio as much and there's tons of dudes making rock and roll. That says something."
Fall Out Boy will perform live in London next week when they headline The Underworld on February 25.
