What a Catch, Fall Out Boy
Fall Out Boy makes good on their word. You can’t deny that.
After the recent fiasco involving the announcement of Folie a Deux being pushed back, followed quickly by the announcement that that album will in fact release in December of this year, Fall Out Boy fans have been fighting to “stay gold,” as the band might put it. However, the band seems to have moved to apologize for the album date changing already, as another track from Folie a Deux, “What a Catch, Donnie,” has released on iTunes.
The song sounds a lot more like “Golden” from Infinity on High than anything else Fall Out Boy has done before. Which means one of the song’s major highlights is Patrick Stump’s soulful voice. The song also features guest vocal clips from Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship, Brendon Urie of Panic at the Disco, Alex DeLeon of The Cab, Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, William Beckett of The Academy Is…, and Doug, of Doug Does Decaydance. Each of the clips is the guest artist singing a line or two of songs from previous Fall Out Boy albums, going all the way back to Fall Out Boy’s Evening Out With Your Girlfriend.
So far, all three of the songs we have from Folie are very different, which really drives in the idea of diversity that Pete Wentz was talking about a few weeks back. How do you feel about the sounds of Folie so far?
