Ah, The Wanted. “What rude Christina Aguilera comment have they made this time”, I hear you ask? Well, not a single one, actually… because the boyband’s Siva Kaneswaran kept things strictly businesslike when speaking to BBC Newsbeat this week, just sharing enticing notes on the Brit-Irish pop quintet’s tbc third LP, which apparently is out in “roughly November”.
Revealing that Rihanna-alike Rita Ora, ex-N-Dubz rapper Dappy and ‘Sorry For Party Rocking’ hitmakers LMFAO are amongst the guests set to feature on the “worldwide album”, Shiva added: “It’s gonna be another one of those mixed bags; anthemic, some high-hitters, some slow songs… something for everyone, again”.
So that’s good for everyone across the world to know. And speaking of ‘good’ things, Shiva assures us that if said collaborations aren’t good, they won’t make the final tracklisting. “Some songs are a bit too extravagant, too iffy”, he said, adding: “It’s all about the music. I’m excited”.
After much shouting to and from the band’s backstage trailer, curly-haired Jay McGuinness was eventually able to confirm the LP’s release date, saying: “Roughly November. Our marketing team probably care about the Christmas sales. Hi marketing team, thanks for your diligent work!”
