Yes, Christmas has come early. At MP! HQ we have just heard the news that Nathan Sykes from The Wanted is set to go solo this year. We have had a The Wanted shaped hole in our hearts since they split last year and we are pretty excited at the thought of Nathy making some tunes.
Speaking about how his music might sound, Nathan said: “I have tried to make something for everyone and have elements of soul, funk, Motown, dance, straight down the line commercial pop, some more stripped back acoustic tracks and there are a couple of piano ballads on there as well. I just wanted to make an album that people can really enjoy.”
Well, we are more than up for this album. We have already added it to our wish lists. And if you can’t wait for the material, we have found a video of Nathan’s best live performances. He’s practically already solo!
Nathan’s debut single is out this spring, with the album following later in the year.
