For their latest album, British boy-band phenoms One Direction collaborated with a number of artists, but apparently rockers Fall Out Boy were “too odd” to make the cut.
One Direction co-wrote with a number of songwriters including regular collaborators Wayne Hector and Julian Bunetta as well as pop superstar Ed Sheeran for their newest album FOUR
, and in a recent interview with the UK’s Daily Mail
, Fall Out Boy lyricist and bassist Pete Wentz reveals that his band also had a writing session with Harry Styles and co. and, while enjoyable, none of their songs ended up on the platinum selling album

“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,” said Wentz. “Maybe it’s too odd for One Direction
because they didn’t end up using the songs this time.”
While they may have missed out on their songs appearing on 1D’s album, FOB are still having a pretty good run as of late with their new album American Beauty/American Psycho
charting all over the world, including at number 2 in the UK, as well as a summer tour
with Wiz Kahlifa lined up.
Hopefully these songs turn up eventually, because with the recent run FOB has been having with their last two fairly spectacular albums and 1D’s track record of pumping out pop gold, a Fall Out Boy infused pop hit from One Direction seems like it has the potential to some of the most interesting material Top 40 has ever seen.
