McFly have revealed who their latest inspiration is - Prince.
The Brit award-winning pop-rock band - comprising Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd - have chosen a whole new direction for their new album, so they can follow in his footsteps.
"We realised all the songs we'd been writing early on could have gone on the last album and that we weren't doing anything new - a couple of the songs in that early bunch that stood out for us had a Prince and Jacko influence and that's what we wanted to aim to be like, the great pop acts," Tom told the Daily Star.
"It made us decide to challenge ourselves to do something completely different. We wanted a drastic step in the other direction."
