Fall Out Boy Plan Unusual Collaborations for Upcoming Album
Earlier this month, Fall Out Boy announced a new album and tour, officially coming off a four-year hiatus. Since that point, they released a new song, “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark,” and, after headlining the NBA All Star Saturday Night, revealed they have multiple collaborations for their upcoming release.
Their Saturday performance featured 2 Chainz, who will be one of several guests on the album titled Save Rock and Roll. However, the band declined, when speaking with Billboard, to list the names of other artists appearing on the album. Singer Patrick Stump said: “There are going to be a couple of guests. I think we're going to keep mum about it for now.”
Although the album’s title conjures up a grand release, the band says it’s tongue-in-cheek but also indicative of their mission: to move rock forward by doing something different. Bassist Pete Wentz said: “There's an aspect where it is tongue in cheek. But at the same time, we were watching the Grammys and it was great to see Gotye and Fun. and different things in pop win. A year ago, I couldn't have imagined Fall Out Boy and 2 Chainz performing at the All-Star game. It's wild and different.”
Guitarist Joe Trohman mentioned that current rock musicians are afraid to move away from a formula and do something different. He said: “People box it in and say it has to abide by these rules to be rock and roll. And that [mindset] not very rock and roll.”
To support the release, the group is starting a tour in May. Save Rock and Roll hits stores on April 16.
