The Wanted to Release Two Albums in 2013?

Double the pleasure, double the fun!
Angela Cranford for MSG

The Wanted have had a very fruitful 2012 with their two singles "Glad You Came" and "Chasing The Sun" topping the charts. But it's been more than a year since they released a full-length studio album, putting them well behind their British boy band counterparts One Direction, which released two albums in 2012. In 2013 the Wanted are looking to catch up.

The Wanted's Tom Parker tells Billboard that "we're going to do two albums, one in April and one towards the end of the year, because we've written quite a lot of songs this year. We didn't get to release one at this end of this year so it's probably going to squeeze to next year, hopefully."

The cute quintet were expected to release an album this fall after their self-titled EP dropped stateside in April, but for whatever reason that never happened (perhaps distractions were to blame?). 

Jay McGuiness adds: "[Our album] was meant to [arrive] this Christmas, but it wasn't ready yet so… we're thinking around April, we'll have something ready."

We're holding you to it, boys!

Catch the Wanted performing tomorrow night on ABC's "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve," set to begin at 8 P.M. ET.

July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. HyunA's new music will reportedly showcase a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation.
