Nathan Sykes from The Wanted has teased fans with details of his upcoming solo career.
The singer revealed that he is looking forward to being judged “as an individual” as he prepares to step out on his own.
“From being one fifth of a group to being a soloist, there is always the chance to surprise people as they are now only seeing 100% of me for the first time,” he told Hunger TV.
“It’s like a second, first impression and whereas I don’t necessarily think it’s important to change people’s perceptions, I do think it’s exciting that people won’t just see me as ‘the young one in The Wanted’ and can have the freedom to judge me as an individual and not just ‘that bloke from that band’.”
He also revealed that his is looking at a different style of music, but still considers his sound to be pop.
“I’m not going to be one of those people who tries to claim they are not making pop music when they actually are so whereas parts of my sound may not be traditional straight down the line pop music or the pop music people heard from The Wanted, I’m still classing this as a pop album.”
