Have Fall Out Boy confirmed their new single, or more?

After mentioning a documentary to DIY back in March - is it more than just one song?

Yesterday on his BBC Radio 1 show, Zane Lowe announced to the world that there would, as rumour had it for a few hours, be a new Fall Out Boy single.

He confirmed the track - which will be introduced via an interview with bassist Pete Wentz - would be his ‘hottest record’ on Monday night (8th September).

Further to that, the band, who recently completed the Monumentour alongside Reading & Leeds headliners Paramore, posted a deliberately obtuse short video to their YouTube earlier today, which would appear to be morse code for the single’s presumed title, ‘Centuries’.

They also replaced all images on their social presence with solid black.

But that may not be all - when speaking to DIY back in March, Wentz explained that ‘Save Rock And Roll’ the album was only half of it - and there might be a documentary on the way; something that would fit in with his mention of Pharrell’s art show in a more recent interview.

“To me, and this is just maybe because I’m a ‘whatever’ guy, but I feel like we’re halfway there. I feel like we’re halfway through the process. It feels really good and a lot stronger than I would’ve expected,” he told us. “There are things we still need to finish, whether they be called loose ends or not. We have a documentary that we’ve been editing for a really long time. We have just a lot of stuff that we need to do something with, in order to finish out the process that is the ‘Save Rock And Roll’ album cycle. So, at this point, at least we’re halfway there and we’re very humbled by the way that it has gone.

“The plan is just to keep moving, like sharks!” he added. “I would be surprised if we didn’t do something within the next year…”
