‘Chasing the Sun’ with The Wanted
THE WANTED charmers Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes are back to make fan girls swoon over the globe again. The British-Irish boy band who brought us mind-blowing singles like “All Time Low”, “Glad You Came” and “Gold Forever” presents us with their latest offering —- a self-titled Special Edition EP called The Wanted. The album comprises material from The Wanted’s two studio albums, The Wanted (2010) and Battleground (2011), plus the new songs “Satellite” and “Chasing the Sun”. The latter is set to be the theme song for this year’s Ice Age 4: Continental Drift. No other song in the world could have been more apt this rainy season than this hot new single. How could you go wrong with lyrics like ‘When the daylight’s fading, we’re gonna play in the dark till it’s golden again’? —- definitely an awesome tune to break the drizzly weather in Manila.
The Wanted Special Edition EP features ten tracks; all of it is world-class contemporary pop music. The three singles we know already: No. 1 Digital Single “All Time Low”, electro rave thriller “Gold Forever” and the monster Europop summertime No.1, “Glad You Came”. From the exhilarating electro-pop of “Invincible” to the tormented strings of “Warzone” and the throbbing electronics of “Mad Man”, “Chasing the Sun” and “Lose My Mind”, the album twists unexpectedly between both the epic and atmospheric through the soulfully acoustic tune of “Heart Vacancy” and the sheer euphoria of their own brand of future-pop, best summed up in the single “Lightning”.
The Wanted have already achieved four Top Five singles and two Number Ones, been viewed a staggering 30 million times on YouTube and sold over 400,000 copies of their debut album upon its release last October. Watch out as their sensational ditties and undoubtedly good looks will soon rock fan girls over the Philippines.
THE WANTED SPECIAL EDITION EP is out now in CDs exclusively under MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines) at Astroplus and Odysseylive.Net or online via MyMusicStore.com.ph.
