The Wanted's Nathan Sykes Opens Up On "Tough" Months Since Vocal Cord Surgery - Audio

5 June 2013, 09:05

The UK singer has spoken exclusively to Capital FM about his throat surgery and recovery.

The Wanted's Nathan Sykes has opened up to Capital Breakfast about his recent throat injury and the moment he discovered he would need an operation to fix it.

The 'Walks Like Rihanna' singer says he received quite a shock when the doctor told him they would need to operate immediately after discovering he had a haemorhaging nodule on his vocal cords, and promises he is fully focused on recovering.

"It's been quite a tough last couple of months," Nathan admitted exclusively to Capital Breakfast this morning (5th June). "I started struggling when we were filming the TV show and we were recording a bit of the album as well, and it just got worse and worse really.

"Then we did a gig in the Bahamas and my Doc gave me a ring and he just said we literally have to operate now or its going to get so much worse, so I flew back to LA and I was operated on the next day to remove a haemorrhaging nodule," the UK singer explained. "It wasn't pleasant, but the operation went as good as it could have apparently and i've just been resting and focusing on trying to get better."

Despite having to stay back in the UK recovering while the rest of the band promote their new single 'Walks Like Rihanna' out in the US, Nathan says bandmates Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Tom Parker and Jay McGuiness have been very supportive of him.

"They came in to the hospital but they've end so busy," he revealed. "They've been, obviously in America, they've been to Australia and Japan as well, so it's tough seeing them go around the world and going to all these amazing places seeing all these fans we've never met before.

"But obviously The Wanted has to go on," Nathan added. "While I'm here can I just say a massive thank you to all the fans, they've been incredible, literally kept me going through it."

Last weekend saw the launch of The Wanted Life, a new E! reality series charting the band's adventures in the US.

The Wanted are set to open this year's Capital FM Summertime Ball 2013 at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 9th June.
