The Wanted working on new album, ditch “wild” LMFAO collaborations

The Wanted have been hard at work on their second album for half a year now, and they think it might still take another half a year to get it just right.
The band’s Max George told MTV: “We’ve been working on it for, like, the last six months, but it’s still not ready yet. We’re still working away on that, though we’ve got plenty more travelling to do yet, so I’m not actually sure when the album is going to be ready”.
Tom Parker added: “Everyone’s talking about like November-ish, but then we were like, ‘If the album’s not ready for November, then we’re going to do it in, like, the first quarter of the new year’. Though I think the first single off the new album will come before the new year”.
One of the reasons it’s taking so long is those wacky LMFAO guys, who, despite trying to help things along by coming to the studio with some “new fresh sounds”, are just a bit too wacky for The Wanted.
Says Nathan Sykes: “[They’re] real, real, cool guys, and their production on tracks is just insane. They’ve just been off to Brazil and they came back with all these new fresh sounds; it was cool working with them. I’m not sure if the sounds are a bit too wild to go on this album, but it was a great experience”.
