The Wanted have spoken about the delay for their forthcoming album Word Of Mouth and dropping their collaboration with Justin Bieber.
The boyband's third studio album was due for release last year but was pushed back to November.
The We Own The Night group said that the reason for the setbacks was that songs and the album just weren’t ready for release.
Member Siva Kaneswaran explained to MTV News US: "We want to put out the best of us and we are ready now... every song is so personal and we've all aged as writers, and it's very mature and it's the best album yet.
"I think that we weren't ready a year ago. It just wasn't ready; the songs weren't finished.”
Another reason for the record’s delay was their E! Reality TV show, The Wanted Life, with Jay McGuiness adding: “We thought the album was good to go, and last minute a few quite cool gigs and a couple other things popped up that we thought, 'It's probably worth waiting for the album a little'.
“I mean, the fans have waited a few years, so what's a couple of weeks?"
Meanwhile, Max George revealed that their collaboration with Justin Bieber has been dropped from the album, explaining: "I think it was a great song and he did an amazing job writing it, but I think it was very much more suited to his style.
Word Of Mouth is now due for release on November 4.
