McFly to give away album free

The new album will be available next month

McFly will give away their next studio album, ‘Radio:ACTIVE’, free with the Mail on Sunday newspaper on July 20.

The band, who follow in the footsteps of the likes of Ray Davies and Prince, who have also given away new albums with newspapers, hope to shift around three million copies of the album.

The newspaper has an official circulation of 2,237,509, but the band are hoping that the free album will boost sales.

Singer Tom Fletcher told BBC News: “We get to put it into almost three million homes, which is an incredible opportunity for us. Hopefully the three million people will all enjoy the music and they’ll decide to see us when we go on tour.”

The band will release the album conventionally in September on their own record label, Super Records.
