The Wanted's Nathan Sykes has been mapping out his solo career since the British pop-rock band disbanded early last year. They broke hearts everywhere, but that simply set the stage for their next musical steps. Now Sykes—following the SoundCloud drop of the buzz track More Than You'll Ever Know—has revealed the high-fashion, black 'n white music video.
Directed by Thomas Bryant, the clip (below) keeps things rather simple, yet polished. Much like Bruno Mars and Nick Jonas, the song (co-written by Sykes, Taley Riley, Scribz Riley, Kurtis McKenzie and John Mills), chugs along quite nicely by incorporating big band, jazz, soul and contemporary pop.
More Than You'll Ever Know samples his debut LP, slated later this year. For the record, he's been working with such industry titans as Diane Warren, Babyface, songwriter Harmony Samuels (Jennifer Lopez) and newcomer LDN Noise. The album's first official single is expected this spring.
Earlier this week, Sykes also announced his first-ever solo headlining UK tour. Tickets go on sale on Friday (March 13).
