Brand New Single from The Wanted Available on iTunes today!
(May 28, 2013 - New York, NY) Today via iTunes, The Wanted release to US audiences their brand new single, “Walks Like Rihanna,” on Island Def Jam/Global Talent. The accompanying video pays homage to some of pop’s most epic and enduring acts and has already amassed over 2.7 million views in fewer than two weeks.
The release prefaces the cable television premiere of “The Wanted Life,” the band’s new reality television show on NBC Universal's E! network. The series debuts in American households on June 2nd at 10:30 pm (ET). Offering an unvarnished glimpse behind the scenes, “The Wanted Life” promises the summer’s most revealing and riveting reality viewing. The series is produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, SB Productions and Global Television. Watch the extended trailer.
The Wanted have still more exciting news! Expect a brand new album later this year, along with the announcement of much-anticipated global tour dates. The global tour comes in the wake of a promotional swing through Australia and Japan—where their single, “Glad You Came,” sits atop radio and video airplay charts. Fans should note that The Wanted are currently a four-piece ensemble; band member Nathan Sykes underwent emergency surgery for a hemorrhaging nodule on his vocal chords and is currently on extended hiatus.
Since the UK release of their self-titled 2010 debut album, The Wanted have become a worldwide sensation. The boys have to their name a pair of No. 1 singles –“Glad You Came” and “All Time Low” – as well as Top 5 singles “Chasing The Sun” and “I Found You.” Moreover, the boys earned the 2013 People's Choice Award for Favorite Breakout Artist.
