The Wanted working with Guy Chambers on a Robbie Williams style track
The Wanted Update!
The Wanted boys have given a variety of interviews recently and have shared a few interesting facts about the direction of the band…
Jay seems relieved of their success in the US and even thinks the group are safe from being dropped even if their new singles start to ‘bomb’;
“I think because we’ve been to America and seen how we’re doing, we can actually make this last for a long time.
“We’re past that point now where we’re worried about being written off. Basically, we could do a record that flopped and the record label would be like, ‘It’s cool’. At the beginning, if the song flopped, we were gonna be dropped. I think we’re past that stage now.”
Jay also revealed that the band have quite a large male fan-base and this is something that they want to grow as a group in the future.
In terms of the groups musical direction Jay revealed that he though the group would always go for a rocky edge but revealed that they pursued a dance theme as rock wasn’t selling a lot currently.
He also said the band were working with Guy Chambers on an almost Robbie Williams-type song. One thing he did rule out though was rap – so not worries for Bieber then!
The Wanted’s new single ‘Chasing the Sun’ is available to download in the US now and will be released in the UK on May 21.
