The 'Glad You Came' singers are preparing for the release of their first US album next month.
The Wanted have announced that their US album will be self-titled and have also revealed the record's cover artwork.
The 'Warzone' singers made the announcement on Twitter today (14th March), where they treated fans to the first look at the album's cover, ahead of its release stateside in April.
"So we also have a second bit of news that we'd like to share with you all…" The Wanted tweeted this evening. "We are pleased to announce our new US album will be self-titled #TheWanted.
"Check out the cover & tell us what u think!" the five-piece band wrote alongside a picture of the album cover art. "Spread the word about #TheWanted & let everyone know that we're coming for you on 4/24 ;)"
After making the announcement the hashtag "#TheWanted" trended number one on Twitter across the world, leading Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Nathan Sykes, Tom Parker and Jay McGuiness to thank fans for their support.
They added: "Can't believe you managed to get both those topics to trend. only goes to show that our #TWFanmily is UNSTOPPABLE."
Earlier today The Wanted announced that their first US single 'Glad You Came', which is currently at number four on the US Billboard Top 100, has sold over one million copies in America earning it platinum status.
The 'Lightning' singers are due to return to the US next week ahead of an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and will also launch former Big Top 40 number one 'Gold Forever' in America on 20th March.
