The Wanted’s New Album: Five Things We Know

The Wanted Fanmily can rejoice! It looks like the only way is up for the five piece as they are back together again, part of brand spanking new telly show ‘The Wanted Life’, preparing for their first WORLD tour and their third album looks set to be the best one yet. We don’t know about you but all this excitement is making “our hearts go boom boom boom boom boom”! But before you pull out your party poppers to celebrate The Wanted’s success, here’s five things we know about Max, Jay, Siva, Tom AND Nathan’s next album:

1It’s not called “Third Strike”.

The band’s third album was originally called “Third Strike” but it was revealed some time ago that they decided against the name. We are glad of this decision as it seems like the album would be their last, if you were to take the saying “Third strike and you’re out” literally. But there is no denying that the album cover for “Third Strike” was extremely pretty.


Whoop whoop! The cheeky chappy officially rejoined his band mates at The Capital Summertime Ball for the performance of their single ‘I Found You’. Despite suffering from an Adele-like ailment, the band confirmed that Nathan is back and will be providing his vocal stylings for the new album.

3Rita Ora is on it.

Nathan won’t be the only one supplying vocals for the album, the boys confirmed that the ‘Hot Right Now’ songstress will be featured on a track.  We’re hoping for a killer party anthem along the lines of ‘How We Do’ mixed with a ‘Glad You Came’ flavour, is that too much to ask?

There’s a duet with Justin Bieber.

Justin Bieber will also be lending his pop stuff to the album. Seen as they share management and the boys are working with some of Justin Bieber’s hit makers, it seems only natural that this should happen. With all these collabs, could The Wanted become the new Pitbull?

5Rihanna’s a fan.

The album will feature their past hits ‘Chasing The Sun’ and ‘I Found You’, as well as their most recent musical outing ‘Walks Like Rihanna’. During an interview with MTV, it was revealed that Rihanna and her management were fans of the song. Maybe the Bajan Beauty will include a song called ‘Struts like The Wanted’ on her next album? That’s album number 458, right?

All this juicy goss has made us more excited for the album than ever before. It looks set to be a star studded scorcher and should catapult Max,Jay, Siva, Nathan and Tom to the international stardom they deserve. Now if you excuse us, we are about to listen to “The Wanted” and “Battleground” back to back for the next 24 hours to satisfy our cravings.
