Nathan Sykes took to the stage for a live interview and performance of ‘Kiss Me Quick’ on Good Morning America. Previously known as a member of ‘The Wanted,’ the once hugely popular British boy band, he is back on the scene as a solo artist.
Yes indeed, the 22-year-old is back and undaunted by the hiatus of The Wanted, the boy band that brought him fame and whose story was also chronicled in the E! reality TV series ‘The Wanted Life.’ Dare we say, he’s wanted once again! He was surrounded by numerous fans in GMA’s Times Square Studio in New York City.
In an interview with GMA co-anchor Robin Roberts, Nathan Sykes opened up about his new music and a transition to solo artist. He spoke about making his debut in the U.S. as touring artist. He said, “Yes, Gramercy Theater [in New York City]. Sold out in ten minute, those tickets. I couldn’t quite believe it.”
He said of the new album, due out in January, “I really love the sound. It’s very R & B.” He went on to say, ” I got to work with Babyface on the album and so harmony is incredible. So I got to work with just amazing people.
He went on to say, “I’m so lucky to be able to say I’ve written all of the album except for the Diane Warren track but so much fun writing the album.”
Needless to say that’s quite a formidable lineup of music industry giants! Quite impressive for the young artist who’s now making a name for himself as a solo artist. Along with his work with The Wanted, he’s also known for the duet he recorded with then-girlfriend Ariana Grande, “Almost Is Never Enough,” from “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” movie soundtrack.
His debut solo single is “Kiss Me Quick” and during his appearance on the morning program he gave a live performance to his enthusiastic fans at the studio and, as one can witness, his performance was quite a hit on social media as well.
