Ben Hazlewood, the highly acclaimed finalist of “The Voice” in Australia, has debuted his brand new single Wanted and is premiering the track online via Soundcloud and YouTube. Fans can now purchase the single at iTunes. Hailed by EQ Music Blog as “a powerful, alternative pop effort with underlying soul influences,” the treacly, aching Wanted, with its anthemic, heart-rending chorus announces the arrival of a genuine force on the scene, unafraid to put his heart beyond his sleeve.

Contemporary pop. Alternative rock. Many points in between. “Wanted is a song about unrequited love and the angst and frustration, the desperation that comes with it,” Hazlewood says. “It’s a powerful plea to the person you feel more for than you have ever felt before. The last cry for a change that you anticipate may never come.”
