Nathan Sykes’ new music video for “More Than You’ll Ever Know” proves he’s taking the solo artist thing seriously.
The former The Wanted crooner rocks clean lines in a tailored suit throughout the simple black and white visual directed by Thomas Bryant.
“There is no one to hide behind anymore! It’s so exciting though. I have an amazing team and I get to be really involved in the whole process and I can’t wait to get back out on stage again,” the 21-year-old tells HungerTV about his solo career.
“It’s like a second, first impression and whereas I don’t necessarily think it’s important to change people’s perceptions, I do think it’s exciting that people won’t just see me as ‘the young one in The Wanted’ and can have the freedom to judge me as an individual and not just ‘that bloke from that band’.”

Sykes adds there’s a few different people he writes about on his upcoming record.
“There’s a couple of breakups that I write about and a few almost romances and what-not,” Nathan revealed. “And there are a couple songs that talk about being in relationships as well, so it’s going to be quite funny when people start to listen to the lyrics.”
“I’m one of those really annoying people for exes, like, I don’t hold grudges whatsoever. And I am one of the people who only takes really positive experiences from relationships and moves forward with it,” he said. “So it’s a really nice song even though it is quite heartbreaking. It’s got a really nice message with it. It’s just the song that [says] you can’t be angry at any situation because sometimes things just don’t work out and you’ve just got to roll with it and move on.”
