One Direction were the big boy band winners at the MTV Video Music Awards last night (they snagged a whopping three Moonmen), but The Wanted are moving on from their Best New Artist loss by unleashing new single “I Found You”. Steve Mac, who co-wrote/produced the UK quintet’s global smash “Glad You Came”, was behind the boards yet again this time around. And the result is a song that, at first, sounds deceivingly just like “Glad You Came”, but soon segues into a soulful up-tempo number that manages to come across unlike anything else on radio at the moment.
Sure, all the formulaic dance-pop boxes are ticked here. But vocally, these guys have never sounded stronger. “I Found You”, the lead single from The Wanted’s upcoming album (said to be called Over:Sound) is due out in November. Give the song spin below!
