The Wanted have confirmed they recorded tracks with Justin Bieber and Rita Ora that didn’t make the cut for their upcoming album, “Word Of Mouth.”
Speaking to MTV News UK, band member Jay McGuiness revealed:
We did record some songs with Rita Ora and Justin Bieber that are not on the album.
Will you ever hear them in the not-too-distant future? I hope so, but I don’t know if they’re going to be singles or on an album. I think you need a crystal ball or two to know that.
Other band member Tom Parker joked that Justin was crushed about his track not making it onto the new LP. Tom said:
I think Bieber did cry when he found out that he wasn’t going to be on our album, but what can you do?
We said ‘Dude, we know you’re up and coming and we’d love to help you out, but we’ve got artistic credibility we need to worry about.
Justin Bieber and The Wanted share a manager in Scooter Braun, who also looks after band member Nathan Sykes new ladylove Ariana Grande.
The Wanted long-awaited new album “Word Of Mouth” is set for release in the UK on November 4.
