The Inspiration Behind the Latest Fall Out Boy Song

Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy talks with Radio.com about the inspiration behind “Dear Future Self (Hands Up):”

The song that we’re always in search of, to me, is ‘Hey Ya.’” That’s the song. It’s like this perfect song because it’s weird and you’ve never heard something like that before, but at the same time it feels like, warm and fuzzy, because it feels like something you have known. That’s what we’re on the search for.

Video Interview With Fall Out Boy

Pete Wentz and Andy Hurley talk with Rock Sound in a new video interview:

The one thing that I would do differently in the future is listen to the kids on that aspect- because they just drive that anyway. ‘Last Of The Real Ones’ is a single- it’s just not a single that’s on the radio. But it’s on the internet like a motherfucker. And so that part- I wouldn’t say that it was unsuccessful- it was just a learning experience for us. But I think it was a successful transition.
