Upcoming Album from The Wanted Delayed
Originally, The Wanted’s third studio album – and their first international release – was scheduled to drop before the end of 2012. Now it looks like the album is scheduled for next year – and the collaborations with LMFAO and Rita Ora could be cut.
In a recent interview, the group’s Tom Parker explained their label wanted the release out around Christmas, but the boyband wanted be create a product they are proud of and decided to spend more time on it. He said: "The label wanted us to release it in time for Christmas sales but we weren't happy with the whole album so we refused.”
Parker went onto explain that they prefer quality over higher sales: "At the end of the day it's up to us. We are the artist and the label may not like it but there's not much they can do. We've been all around the world this year. When have we had time to sit down and write an album?
"We have about nine songs we are happy with and could put it out now but we'd prefer to have an album we are proud of and lose an extra 100,000 sales."
Earlier this year, collaborations with LMFAO and Ora were confirmed, although these two tracks may not may it onto the final product. Ora is on a different label, while LMFAO broke up in recent months. Could the tracks surface in a deluxe edition or as bonus songs?
However, this doesn’t mean collaborations are nixed completely. Parker explained they were approached by Chris Brown. The boyband and the “Turn Up The Music” singer may record in L.A. over the next few weeks.
This year, The Wanted’s single “Glad You Came” went triple platinum in the U.S. The follow-up single “I Found You” was released more recently.
