Interview

10 Questions With Nathan Sykes

By  May 28, 2017

We miss The Wanted.

As the youngest member of The Wanted, Nathan Sykes was propelled to international stardom at the age of 16 years old. With a string of number ones, sold-out tours, and fans across the globe, the band dominated the world until One Direction came along.

The British-Irish boy band then went on hiatus and Nathan carved out his promising and exciting solo career last year with his debut solo album Unfinished Business.

We managed to interview Nathan before his return to Singapore this June!

 

1. If you could choose a theme song to reflect your life, what would it be and why?

I would choose My Way by Frank Sinatra. It's such a beautiful and powerful song. I think that it's important to do things your own way and make your own stamp on the world. I think the lyrics really represent that.

2. What things in life are still mysteries to you?

The future! You never know what's around the corner!

3. You’ve got a day to be anyone you want to be. Who would you be and why? What would you do being that person?

I'm really happy within myself but if I had to choose someone else I would be Barack Obama and I would find out all of the worlds biggest secrets!

4. What was the inspiration behind ‘There’s Only One Of You’?

There's Only One Of You was written about that part of your life between moving on from someone that you cared about and still wanting to be with them. It focuses on how the world is still going to move on whether you're with that person or not but there's still that one person that is on your mind.

5. What’s the most atrocious headline that you’ve read about yourself?

To be fair I think I've been quite lucky with headlines as a solo artist so far as I try to be as positive and as nice about everyone as possible and I will always try to let my music do the talking.

6. Tell us an interesting event that happened during the making of ‘Unfinished Business’.

I think writing Famous was one of my favourite moments while making Unfinished Business. I started writing the song in the shower and then took the idea into the studio and then revisited the song a few times to make sure I was telling the story as well as I possibly could because it was such a personal song for me to write.

7. What’s the best and hardest part of being Nathan Sykes?

I think the best part is that I get to travel the world doing what I love every single day and I have developed into an artist that writes all their own music so I get to tell my own story to so many people. The hardest part is definitely dealing with jet lag as I love my bed!!

8. What is your favourite song to perform live?

My favourite song to perform live is More Than You'll Ever Know because it's such a feel good song and there's a lot of moments for the audience to sing along with me!!

9. It’ll be a crime if we don’t talk about this. Durian is a really popular fruit in southeast Asia also regarded as “king of fruits”. Are you willing to try them during your stay in Singapore?

I'm always open to trying most things! But I've heard mixed reviews about Durian so we might have to play that one by ear!!

10. Lastly, what message would you like to give to your Singaporean fans?

Thank you so much for the support!!! I love reading your messages online and I can't wait to come back to Singapore as it's one of my favourite places in the world!! See you on June 17th!!
