Nathan Sykes from The Wanted has become the first member to pursue a solo career (minus Max's 'acting' in Glee) and he has just released a preview song which is free to download from his Facebook page called "More Than You'll Ever Know". It's surprisingly good, a lot better than what I would have expected from him, although his presence as a popstar isn't exactly necessary with Conor Maynard's present 'comeback' occurring.

I'm not really sure what direction it'll lead to with the album but it doesn't exactly scream 'hit', plus it's been a long time since The Wanted were around, so whether anyone actually remembers him/cares is another question...

If it ain't about The Wanted, they'll probably know him from that duet with Ariana Grande kink.gif

I loved The Wanted, but the notion of any of them having solo careers just seems dull. I didn't know Max was in Glee either. Nathan's super cute and adorable, but I'm not here for that sound at all.

It sounds like the sort of song John Newman would make light work of. He on the other hand just sounds like he's just concentrating hard whilst sat on the loo.

It's such a shame really with The Wanted. Their first album, 'Gold Forever' and 'Glad You Came' were really excellent pop.

Then fame and a small level of success in US got the better of their egos (or rather Tom's) and then they just continued releasing pale imitations of 'Glad You Came' ad infinitum until they split/all hated each other.

Yeah an XF slot seems very likely after he got one last year, he'll be swallowed up though drama.gif

November?! Following on from 2 'hits' that disappeared as soon as they arrived and a flop this is a terrible idea. I actually really like his solo stuff but even with an XF performance which we have seen in recent years does not always translate into sales he will be coming for that #54 smash album nocheer.gif I hope they are not banking on XF alone and have some serious promo slots lined up.

I'm interested (kind of), I really like the second and third singles and his voice is phenomenal.

This will totally bomb, but I'll likely buy it since I have grown to really like his singles.

Sadly, he hasn't made much of an impact as a solo artist yet and I can't really see that changing. He is talented and I like his style of music but like the Wanted, the general public don't seem to connect to him as a person or his music.

I don't think they'd give him another X Factor slot after the last one couldn't save the song would they?

Well I think it made Over and Over Again a bigger hit than it otherwise would've been!

Let's hope track 1 is right. This album seems to have been a ridiculously long time in the pipeline. I would assume he has some sort of X Factor promotion lined up or this would surely be shelved/out by now? I don't see the album performing well, which is a shame as the three singles have been great so far. His vocals are gorgeous and he seems sweet, so I'd like him to do well.

I like the instant grat track 'Twist' - Not hit material but it's a decent track.

Also the standard version on iTunes is 6.99 and deluxe is 9.99 - Definately the right price points to try and get some early pre-orders and sales.
