In a recent interview with Daily Star, Pete Wentz revealed that the last time Fall Out Boy were in London, they had a writing session with One Direction. While he claims that the session went well, the songs and ideas may have been “too odd” for them, as they didn't use the tracks. You can read a full quote from Wentz below.
“Last time we were in London we wrote with the guys in One Direction. It was a great session but I don’t know if Fall Out Boy writes what One Direction wants to sing.
There’s a certain area of odd that we can stake a place in, but it’s like we have the language of twins. Maybe it’s too odd for One Direction because they didn’t end up using the songs this time.”
Wentz also commented on the band's endurance and progression over the years:
“We’ve evolved, so we still get to play shows with pop acts like Meghan Trainor and Iggy Azalea.
We are always the odd ones at the party because we are clearly not a band that was put together. But hopefully we are a band who enjoy a pop moment.”
The band's latest studio album, American Beauty/American Psycho, is out now on DCD2/Island Records.
