The Wanted Wrap Up ‘Chasing the Sun’ Music Video
The Wanted‘s new single ‘Chasing the Sun’ drops today, so it’s no wonder the boys are wrapping the video for the song, which is companion piece to the mega smash ‘Glad You Came.’ The U.K. sensations filmed the clip in Los Angeles and it’s a fitting backdrop to a song about keeping the party going.
“Our song ‘Chasing the Sun’ is basically about the party that keeps on going,” Jay McGuiness told MTV.
“You always want to do better than your last song, and we’ve always set a really high standard with ‘Glad You Came’ already. But I think we know now from the singles we’ve got in our pocket, there’s no way we’re going anywhere. We’re here to stay, and our songs are going to get better and better. I’m just bragging right now so hard.”
Hey, Jay, you’ve earned the right to brag, so boast away.
But it’s more than that. Max George opened up about the actual clip, saying, “There’s certain shots which we’ve just done now which are on a rooftop, and then we’re filming all night until 6 in the morning, and then the last shot, I think, will be us just kind of walking away looking rather disheveled.”
Yeah, well The Wanted looking disheveled is better than how most boys look in their Sunday best. The boys always look good, even at 6AM, in rumpled, post-party clothes and with bedhead. Although George needn’t worry about that, since he is close-cropped.
The Wanted aren’t resting on their laurels or coasting on the success of ‘Glad You Came.’ They want to do do things that boy bands before them haven’t. “I think the songs suggest about our musical growth. We’re always willing to change it up,” Tom Parker said.” ‘Glad You Came’ set the precedent for America, but we’ve got big songs like ‘Warzone’ in the U.K., which is going to be on the EP, and that’s a ballad with dubstep — something that a boy band has never done before. And we took a bit of a risk. I think everyone loved it, so we like to take risks with our music.”
Justin Bieber got a sneak peek of the video, as he and the band share Scooter Braun as a manager. He tweeted: “also my bros @thewantedmusic are performing their new song on @NbcTheVoice tomorrow. Just saw your new video with scooter. SICK!”
Good songs + The Biebs in their corner? How could the Wanted be anything but successful?
The Wanted will perform on ‘The Voice’ tonight at 9 PM ET.
