With ONE DIRECTION slowly moving toward a rock sound lately, and FALL OUT BOY moving more towards pop …it is surprising that the two bands aren’t able to meet somewhere in the middle.
“Last time we were in London we wrote with the guys in One Direction,” Pete Wentz admitted. “It was a great session but I don’t know if Fall Out Boy writes what One Direction wants to sing.”
It could have been a sight to behold, but alas, Fall Out Boy’s hyper-referential lyrics and sample-heavy studio rock might have been more than the more traditional lads in 1D bargained for. There’s no telling what the music might’ve sounded like.
Ed Sheehan is however one superstar One Direction did wind up collaborating with; the singer-songwriter co-wrote the track “18.”
Wentz continued, “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.”
