Following the release of "Walks Like Rihanna" and "We Own the Night", English-Irish boyband The Wanted debuts another single from their much-awaited album "Word of Mouth", due on November 4. The pop ballad about a romance soon to meet its end is quite special in that it is co-written by band member Nathan Sykes himself.
"It's a song I wrote in an afternoon with a friend of mine," revealed Sykes, who earlier this year took a short hiatus from the group to undergo throat surgery. "And it really means a lot to me 'cause it kind of goes into how hard it is to hold a relationship when you're in this business, traveling the world and stuff like that."
Some speculate that he might be referencing to his new romance with pop/R'n'B singer Ariana Grande in the slow jam, but as Sykes explained, it's something that people in show business "on different paths" might actually be feeling. "I think it's very relatable to a lot of the fans as well because sometimes in life that just happens and people end up on different paths and it just doesn't work out," he said.
With the release of "Show Me Love", The Wanted is hoping this could tide their loyal followers over until the arrival of their third studio album, which had been pushed from its supposed original due date this month to its new worldwide release this coming November.
