The Wanted Confirm Rita Ora And Dappy Collaborations For New Album
17 July 2012, 13:19
The 'Chasing The Sun' five-piece also reveal they have been in the recording studio with LMFAO.
The Wanted have recorded songs with the likes of Rita Ora, Dappy and LMFAO as potential tracks for their upcoming third studio album and have promised a huge variation of sounds on their new record.
'Glad You Came' singer Siva Kaneswaran says the follow-up to 2011's 'Battleground' is going to be a "worldwide" album, and hinted that not all of their recorded collaborations may make the final track listing.
"We're working on the next album and it's going to be a worldwide album, so everyone can see it," Siva revealed to the BBC. "We're working with Rita Ora, Dappy, LMFAO, loads of tracks.
"But we all decided that if the track is good enough then it's on the album, not because of collaboration [but] because we're stubborn."
When asked about 'R.I.P.' singer Rita Siva described the 21 year-old pop star as a "lovely girl" and said he is pleased she is finding such success in the industry right now.
"I went in to see her and did a song with her, but she wasn't big when we worked with her," Siva added. "She was just on the cusp and now she's just exploded, and I'm very proud of her. She's a very nice girl and it's good to see good people doing well."

Siva also promised fans of The Wanted that their third album will have a huge variety of sounds with "something for everyone".
He explained: "It's going to be another of those mixed bags, [some] anthemic, some high hitters and some slow songs."
The Wanted have been writing and recording for their third record for the past few months, after returned from their recent US tour earlier this year.
