McFly have shared the title and release date of their forthcoming seventh studio album.

McFly have announced the name of their seventh studio album, Power To Play. The group shared the news across their social media page on Wednesday (March 29), saying the album would be released in June this summer.

McFly’s Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd have hinted at their latest musical offering with fans. Their forthcoming project is to be named Power To Play, with the band having also shared a sneak peek of the album art, which features a colourful lightning-themed design.

The project comes three years after McFly’s last release, Young Dumb Thrills, which dropped in 2020. The band confirmed they were working on a follow-up project just a year on.

At the time, the group hinted their next body of work would have a "rockier sound." While discussing the project with a national newspaper in 2021, the group’s drummer Harry Judd said: "It’s not classic pop. It is back to more guitar, drums and bass."
