The Wanted listen to their own album when they are getting ready to party.

The 'Lightning' group - which includes Max George, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Siva Kaneswaran - are delighted their latest record 'Word of Mouth' is finally finished so they like to listen to the LP in its entirety.

Jay told heat magazine: ''Yeah, we do [listen to our own music] now. We had so many demos floating around, so now that we've got the full album we always whack it on.''

The boys have a reputation for partying hard and their album contains a mixture of ''party tracks'' and ''melancholy'' tunes and Jay thinks the other band members - like Nathan who had throat surgery after haemorrhaging a vocal nodule and Max, whose engagement to Michelle Keegan last year - may recall a harder time when they listen to particular songs.

He added: ''It's the classic Wanted party tracks that you're going to want to dance to when you're out. Its been two years [since our last album] and there have been ups and downs for a lot of the fellows, so they'll hear the history behind some of the melancholy songs.''
