Pop band McFly have announced that they have struck a deal with a Sunday tabloid to give their new album away for free.

The quartet's fourth album 'Radio:ACTIVE' will be offered free with The Mail On Sunday on July 20th. A 'deluxe edition' of the album will also be released for retail purchase in September, and will feature bonus tracks and exclusive artwork.

Band member Tom Fletcher told the BBC: "We get to put it into almost three million homes, which is an incredible opportunity for us. Hopefully the three million people will all enjoy the music and they'll decide to see us when we go on tour."

It's the second time that The Mail On Sunday has teamed up with a musical act: Prince's last album 'Planet Earth' was given away with the paper last year.
