The Wanted Reveal Behind The Scenes Secrets Of New Album 'Battleground'
The 'Glad You Came' singers reveal behind the scenes secrets of the biggest tracks on their second album, 'Battleground'.
1. 'Glad You Came'
Jay: "At the end of the 'Glad You Came' video, we were all meant to jump into the sea...including the extras. But one of the girls chickened out and refused to jump".
Max: "When we filmed the video for 'Lightning' it was genuinely scary. There were rattlesnakes and tarantulas everywhere so we had to constantly watch out for them".
Nathan: "In the video I'm supposed to make it look like I'm having a fight with this massive guy after an argument. The director called me in and said I had to improvise a fight with him. Now I'm not exactly the biggest guy in the band...I pushed this guy and he pushed me back and I went flying backwards through some doors. It was so slapstick!"
Nathan: "This track is like a party - it's a great song to listen to before you go out. I think it's our strongest ballad. It's beautiful".
Jay: "It was written by Diane Warren, one of the biggest songwriters ever, whose name has been on over a billion records sold. She wrote tracks like 'How Do I Live' and 'Don't Break My Heart'."
6. 'The Weekend'
Tom: "I actually produced a bit of this track. I only started producing recently - it's been really good fun."
7. 'Lie To Me'
Tom: "The song's about being in a relationship with a girl who's lying to you, but you're just not ready to see or accept the truth".
8. 'Gold Forever'
Jay: "We filmed the video for 'Gold Forever' on the set of the film The King's Speech". Picture: Rob Cable
