The 'Boyfriend' star's manager says he predicts some big hits on the UK band's next album.
The Wanted's new music has been hailed as "incredible" by Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun after he got to hear what the 'Chasing The Sun' stars are working on for their next record.
Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness and Tom Parker are currently in the recording studio working on the follow-up to their 2011 album 'Battleground', and Scooter says he expects the new album to include a lot of potential hits, as well as wishing band member Jay happy birthday after he turned 22 yesterday (24th July).
"Wow. The boys from @thewantedmusic are in the studio recording and the music is INCREDIBLE!" he tweeted last night. "HITS! and HAPPY BIRTHDAY @JayTheWanted! #JAYBIRD."
Earlier this month The Wanted promised fans the new record will be "worldwide" and a "great album", as well as revealing they have recorded collaborations with the likes of Rita Ora, LMFAO and Dappy which could all potentially make the final album tracklisting.
In addition, the band have been working on writing material themselves for the new record, with Nathan complimenting bandmate Siva on a song they have been working on this week.
He posted: "Just recorded a tune that @SivaTheWanted has done! Liking ur work bro!!"
