With so much buzz about boy bands these days, the Wanted are keeping the momentum alive with several announcements in the lead-up to the release of their first U.S. album. With their single "Glad You Came" going platinum this week, the guys shared that their next single, "Gold Forever," will hit iTunes next week. While "Glad" was sassy and sexy lyrically, the guys show their softer side on "Gold," singing about living and loving in the moment. It starts off mid-tempo with a piano before a beat kicks in at the chorus as the guys sing, "We're standing in a light that won't fade/ Tomorrow's coming, but this won't change/ Because some days stay gold forever."
Their April 24 U.S. release will simply be titled The Wanted. The album cover features the faces of the five guys. "We are pleased to announce our new US album will be self-titled #TheWanted," they tweeted. "Spread the word about #TheWanted & let everyone know that we're coming for you on 4/24. "We are SO OVERWHELMED right now ... cannot tell you how amazing you guys make us feel. This is MENTAL #GladYouCamePlatinum," they said about their Stateside success so far. "We can't thank our #TWFanmily & @TheWantedUS enough for supporting us the way you have. You guys are truly THE BEST." As the guys continue to promote their music in the States, they're set to hang with rapper Young Jeezy and MTV Artist to Watch Dev at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas for mtvU's Spring Break festivities. It'll all go down March 20 to 22. Next week, they will also appear on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno." After several performance dates here and there, they will appear on "The View" and The "Today" Show on April 24 and 25, respectively. "The American fans are so optimistic, very intense," Max George told MTV News about being embraced by American pop-music lovers. "They're just really enthusiastic. I get a massive buzz off American people. I think it's really refreshing." Share your thoughts on the Wanted in the comments below!
