Nathan Sykes has premiered his latest solo track.

The 21-year-old heartthrob has released 'More Than You'll Ever Know', ahead of his official debut solo single which is set to be released later this year.

Writing on Twitter, he said: ''My first single will be out in Spring but as you've all been so amazingly patient I didn't want you to wait until then ...

''So the wait is over, sign up here for an exclusive track off my upcoming album.''

The track - which is now available to download for free online - will feature on the star's first solo album, which follows from his career as part of The Wanted, who released their third studio record 'Word of Mouth' in 2013.

Although it has previously been reported the band's decision to go on hiatus was because they had become ''bitter'' towards one another, fellow member Max George did not seem to be holding any grudges as he congratulated the star on his new track.

Posting a link to the singer's new track, he wrote: ''well done @NathanSykes ! Sounding more mature every day! Love it! Go get 'em bud!''

Meanwhile, Nathan previously confessed the record has been inspired by his struggle to get over ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande, with whom he enjoyed a four-month romance in late 2013.

He confessed: ''The time we broke up was really tough. The Wanted decided to take a break and I lost my grandad. I was not in the best place. She was my first grown-up relationship. But sometimes you have to go into a place like that to be able to find the best music out of it.

''The most emotional song is about me telling myself not to be angry at the break-up because sometimes things just don't work out. That's life.''
