VMA Nominees The Wanted Announce New Single Out Friday

6 September 2012
The Wanted had some big news on Wednesday, ahead of their appearance at tomorrow's 2012 MTV Video Music Awards: They'll have a brand-new single out the next day.

The guys took to their Twitter page to announce that their next single off their still-in-the-works album will be "I Found You," dropping Friday. "So you may or may not have heard but it's now coming officially from us....*drum roll* *pausing for dramatic effect* Our brand new single is titled 'I Found You' & you'll be able to hear it on radio stations everywhere from Friday morning!!!" they wrote.

While their fan club will get the early listen on Thursday, they are making sure to spread the word about Friday's official release by telling their fans "Tell the world :) #IFoundYou." Little else is known about the track, though the song title had been rumored for several days after the guys were spotted on the set of the Chris Marrs Piliero-directed music video last week. Piliero has previously worked with Britney Spears, the Black Keys and Ke$ha, among others.

The guys of the Wanted are still hard at work on their next studio release, the follow-up to 2011's Battleground, as well as their U.S. EP, which they dropped earlier this year. They are working on new music while in Los Angeles, where they will present at the VMAs and are up for a Moonman for Best New Artist thanks to the video for their breakthrough jam, "Glad You Came."

When MTV News spoke to the guys ahead of the appearance at the VMAs, they teased what they just might end up wearing to the big show. Siva Kaneswaran shared, "I think we should just wear nothing. Like, win or lose, we should be totally naked."

Bandmate Jay McGuiness seemed into the idea, adding, "Anything for a bit of press."

To find out if the Wanted show up naked and become first-time VMA winners, tune in tomorrow for the MTV Video Music Awards.

The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards are set to go live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Friday at 7am (WIB), 8am (SIN/HK/PH/MAL).
