McFly have revealed that their fifth album Above the Noise is their least favourite record.

The group insisted that despite the LP being their worst, teaming up with US producer Dallas Austin was an "amazing experience".

"We thought we'd try something really drastic and try a completely different producer from a different genre of music," Tom Fletcher told Digital Spy.

"Universal heard a couple of demos and said they were interested in re-signing us. They set us up with Dallas Austin and we recorded the whole album with him.

"It was a great experience and it was fun to shake things up a bit."

Discussing the success of the album, which peaked at number 20 on the charts in 2010, Fletcher admitted: "Things reached that point where it was hard to pick the next single."

Harry Judd added: "If it was up to us we would have released 'If U Seek Kate' as the first single. None of us wanted to release 'Party Girl'. It didn't even cross our minds that it would have been a single.

"It was like a bad version of a Lady GaGa song. Looking back, it really wasn't us."

Fletcher explained that although it is the "least favourite" of their albums, they still have "fond memories" of it, adding: "In fact, when I play it back, I like it more than I remember."

McFly's greatest hits album Memory Lane is out now.
