The Wanted Explain 'Chasing The Sun' Meaning: "It's About Following Your Dreams"

28 June 2012, 11:59

The 'Lightning' singers admit they are thrilled the song features on the Ice Age 4 soundtrack.

The Wanted say their recent single 'Chasing The Sun' has several different meanings, and admit they are really proud of the song being chosen as the theme for new animated film Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.

The 'Glad You Came' singers unveiled a second music video for the song last week, which sees them performing on top of computer-generated ice blocks in the sea, and say 'Chasing The Sun' is as much about following your dreams as it is having a good time.

"I think this song, it can mean many things," Jay McGuiness told MTV News, while filming the new music video. "To some people, it is partying all night and chasing the sun the next morning. 

"That's what [the first] video's about, the girls, the teeth are there, the vampires. So we're all there partying away.

"And that's one aspect of the song," Jay explained. "Another aspect of the song is chasing your dreams, the unattainable acorn in the distance."

Band member Siva Kaneswaran said his "dreams have come true" by being able to have their song serve as the theme for the new Ice Age film, describing himself as the "biggest fan" of the popular animated franchise.

'Lightning' singer Nathan Sykes agreed and described the Blue Sky Studios series as the "crème de la crème" of humorous animated films.

Earlier this week Nathan confirmed the band are back in the studio working on their third album and teased that they have been working with N-Dubz star Fazer on the record.
