McFlying back to big boys
POP-ROCK pups McFLY made much of leaving their major label home 18 months ago to set up their own record company.
The quartet sunk hundreds of thousands of pounds of their own money into Super Records and their album Radio:ACTIVE saw them find success in Australia and South America.
Now they're in the final stages of signing a deal with Universal, the parent company of their former Island records stable, which will see the global giant help them distribute and promote their product overseas.
Meanwhile TOM, DANNY, DOUGIE and HARRY have roped in a shock producer for their latest disc. Instead of the rock folk they've collaborated with in the past, they've been working with R&B producer DALLAS AUSTIN.
Austin has previously worked with MICHAEL JACKSON, PINK and TLC.
What a weird hook-up.
