Nathan Sykes On The Wanted Reunion: 'Never Say Never'
We were so glad they came, and so sad they left.
It's hard to believe, but it's been over a year since The Wanted announced that they were going on hiatus, leaving fans a bit heartbroken that Tom, Max, Jay, Siva and Nathan would no longer be making music together.
So what's the status of their break a year later? Well, TWFanmily, I have good news and bad. Good news: It may happen. The bad news? Not anytime soon.
"We are on a break. In regards of getting back together we have just really started a break, so everyone is concentrating on their own thing, but like I said, never say never," Nathan Sykes told MTV News when we caught up with him by phone this week.
"The Wanted is a very big part of all of our lives and always will be," he continued, "and we had some very very special times together and amazing fans that will hopefully continue to support each one of us individually. And hopefully there is a time and a place where everyone is in the right place to do something again. It just depends on what everyone is doing and if they're up for it."
Nathan hasn't forgotten about his bandmates though. He said he has "been in touch" with Max George, who is currently guest starring on "Glee." But really, Nathan is all about his solo project now. The youngest member of the boy band is venturing out on his own, and he's set to release his first single this spring.
"All I've known for the last five years since I was 16 is being in a boy band," Nathan admitted. "And I've learned so much and grown so much as a vocalist, an artist, a writer and, I think, as a person as well."
And while Nathan did write some songs about his past relationship with Ariana Grande, don't expect any of his former bandmates to make a cameo.
"I think this album is solely on me," Nathan added of his upcoming LP. "There's been talk of collaborations with other people, but we've made the decision to keep it just me on this first album because I really want to let people get to know me. Never say never," he told us of a possible Wanted reunion, "but not at the moment."
