The boys have a special message for Capital FM listeners.

The Wanted have thanked fans who praised their new single 'Warzone'.

The track, taken from the band's new album 'Battleground', was hailed as one of the group's best ever after it was given its first play on Capital FM last week.

Speaking to us about the positive reaction, Max George said: "I think any song when it gets a good response, it feels great.

"But with this one, because it feels very much our own because we wrote it, that makes it a little bit extra special."

Jay McGuiness added: "We didn't want release one that we'd written and everyone go, 'Yeah it's quite good'.

"We wanted them to think it's a great song. So the fact that anyone said it's the best one is really chilling me out a bit."

'Battleground' was released on Monday and also features the singles 'Glad You Came' and 'Lightning'.

The album also features the track 'Gold Forever', which was originally released as the official 2011 Comic Relief single.

Meanwhile, The Wanted are among the acts set to perform at this year's Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball in London later this year.
