McFly are feeling less ''pressured'' about the style of music they make for their next record.
McFly have teased that their new music could be a departure from their previous rock pop sound.
The 'Obviously' hitmakers - comprised of Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter - are feeling less ''pressured'' to produce a record of a ''particular'' style and so they've decided to experiment.
Tom, 31, said: ''There's been such a big gap between McFly's albums, that now we're at the stage where we're not tied down to a particular sound.

McFly have postponed their Anthology tour.
On Instagram Judd wrote: ‘I’m absolutely gutted that we’ve had to postpone the tour. I’ve honestly tried everything to make it work, but I’d never want to do a tour where I wouldn’t be able to give you guys the 110% performance you deserve every night. I’m going to do all the rehab possible to get myself ready to do the most epic shows we’ve ever put on!’

New album, McBusted, and a wedding: Charlie Simpson discussed it all on ITV's 'Lorraine.'
Charlie Simpson has finally opened up on a few issues that have been plaguing him for years - namely, his relationship with his former Busted bandmates Matt Willis and James Bourne, who have since formed supergroup McBusted. Speaking this morning on ITV's Lorraine, the now solo singer and guitarist was happy to chat about his life lately.
On having recently re-discovered his friendship with Bourne and Willis, Simpson said. "I hadn't seen them for a long time, six or seven years, and it's been really nice. Almost rebuilding our relationship so I'm pleased - everyone is in a good place, everyone is enjoying doing what they're doing and it's all good."
However, Charlie made sure to point out that his 2005 departure, subsequent folding of the band, and seven years of not seeing Matt and James wasn't due to hard feelings between the group members. "There was never any animosity between me, Matt and James. They're doing the supergroup now and I'm really happy for them," he revealed.

Tom and Giovanna had a special message for their fans.
Tom & Giovanna Are Expecting A Baby.
The pair took advantage of the upcoming Autumnal holiday to announce Giovanna's pregnancy in a novel and rather adorable way. The short ditty shows the couple, who recently married, gathering up pumpkins, playing with their cat and carving away busily whist the track plays.
Tom Fletcher's wedding speech was probably a little different to the stuttering start-stop effort of the average Groom. The McFly singer married his girlfriend Giovanna Falcone last May, though waited until this week to post a video of his wedding speech, or should that be wedding song?
Yep, you've guessed it, the singer-songwriter who's had seven No.1 singles decided to sing to his bride after claiming he was too nervous to deliver a speech. Before launching into the track (to the melody of various McFly songs), Tom said, "I don't have any idea how to write a good speech but I do know how to write a song, so I hope this isn't cheating my way out of it too much." The 15-minute ditty began with Fletcher crooning, "Recently I've been, having a wedding, I've married this girl, who's out of this world, believe me." Was it as sickly as it sounds? Probably.
Nevertheless, Fletcher managed to get through it while entertaining his guests, including best friends Harry Judd, Dougie Poynter and Danny Jones. He sang, "Thanks to my best men, you are the best friends, that I know I will ever have, you're more like brothers, sometimes lovers but we won't tell them about that.We've been together for what feels like forever but I'd do it all again and again, but we're only getting started and I know McFly will never end."
