I Found You

Album: Word Of Mouth (2012)
Charted: 3 89
  • The second single from The Wanted's third album was produced by Steve Mac. The British hitmaker has previously worked with the band on their hit singles "All Time Low," "Glad You Came" and "Lightning."
  • The song's gangster-inspired music video was shot in London in late August 2012 and directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, whose other credits include Britney Spears' "I Wanna Go" and Kesha's "Blow." It was very fun. We got to fend a lot of frustrations with some stunt guys," Tom Parker told MTV News. "I think it's very British. There's another side to London. It's got its grimy parts. I think we wanted to show a dirtier side to The Wanted and a little bit of a dirty side to London and I think we achieved it."

    The woman who is bound and gagged that we see in the opening shot is actually Nathan Sykes' friend's girlfriend.
  • The song features some high-pitched singing from The Wanted boys. "The chorus is a bit Cee Lo Green-esque, a bit Bee Gees as well," said Tom Parker to MTV News. "There's a falsetto in the chorus, but in the verse, it's still got that swagger that the Wanted usually have." "It's about finding someone, whether it be in the rain, in the darkness," Siva Kaneswaren added. "It's about being lost, but found."
  • The boys from The Wanted insist on doing their own stunts for their videos and sometimes suffer for it. Jay McGuiness recalled to Metro that when filming the brawl for this clip, "Tom (Parker) took a bit of hefty whack to the nose. We thought he was making it up but it turned out he got a hairline fracture. They couldn't do anything about it."
