Generic confession from boyband The Wanted

Chart topping boy band The Wanted have said that the songs given to them by their record label are nothing out of the ordinary.

Band member Jay McGuiness spoke out about the group’s manufactured music in an interview with the Daily Star, “There were songs that our record company really loved which we thought were, but really generic.”

Despite their young age, the band demonstrate a solid understanding of the music industry and its often icy reception of acts that have been put together, saying, “we’ve done something which will be panned by certain critics but others will think it’s really inventive.”

Since its inception, the band has signed a deal with Geffen records and has achieved a UK number one single with ‘All Time Low’ along with a number two position with follow up release, ‘Heart Vacancy’.

The Wanted’s self-titled debut album is available now.
