McFly are to release their new album on their own label.Following months of speculation, the band confirmed last Friday (16.05.08) that they were not renewing their contract with Universal and would instead be launching their own label.The band will release their as-yet untitled fifth album on July 21 and frontman Tom Fletcher has revealed details about three of the tracks. 'Do Ya' is described as McFly "doing what we do best - ballsy pop", with Tom adding: "I wanted to write a song that everyone could sing along to, something that was simple and easy to remember and required no effort or thought to listen to. The 22-year-old singer says 'Lies' is the darkest thing the band have ever done.Tom said: "A lot of our songs are nice lyrics about a girl who you love or has left you or a girl you want back, blah, blah, blah. When we wrote this song we knew it needed to be passionate and dark lyrically to fit the melody. We chose to write it about the most manipulative, deceitful, lying b***h in the world and it's basically saying: 'I hope she crashes her car and burns in hell!'"'One For The Radio' is abut the band's constant struggle for critical acceptance.The 'Star Girl' singer said: "Since McFly started we have had to constantly defend ourselves, trying to convince people that we write our own songs and play our instruments. Finally people know we can play, people know we write and people know the songs are great, so I think haters are running out of reasons not to like us. That is what this song is about."

The album was recorded in Australia and produced by Jason Perry.
