Mccoy Eyes Big Stars For Next Gym Class Heroes Album
Gym Class Heroes star TRAVIS MCCOY is desperate for musicians NE-YO and Daryl Hall to appear on the band's new album. The frontman has already recorded tracks for the new disc with production duo Cool + Dre and Busta Rhymes - but is looking for help from Ne-Yo, rocker Hall and Arctic Monkey's frontman, Alex Turner. He tells MTV.com, "This is me reaching out right now, but we're hoping to get Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys on the record, Daryl Hall on the record... And we're looking forward to writing a couple of songs with Ne-Yo; we got to be good friends with him through the VMAs (MTV Video Music Awards)." And MCCoy promises a new sound on the upcoming LP - the follow-up to 2006's As Cruel as School Children. He adds, "I think the song we did with Cool + Dre and Busta is going to surprise a lot of people. It surprised me. "We played it for management, and their jaws dropped, but in a good way."
