Nathan Sykes is ready for his musical close-up.

Just days after dropping "More Than You'll Ever Know," his first solo song since he and the rest of The Wanted went their separate ways, Sykes is releasing the tune's video tomorrow on Vevo.

In the meantime, we have the exclusive footage from the making of the black-and-white production.

And it's just a taste of what's to come on his debut solo album.

In fact, he says his voice is better than ever despite having major throat surgery that threatened to end his singing career about two years ago. "It took me about eight or nine months to get back to where I was and since then my voice has improved so much," he told me earlier today while shooting the video for the album's still-to-be announced first single. "My range has gone up so much. I went back to the very basics and basically re-taught myself how to sing. Touch wood, it's in a really good place."

Sykes also confirmed that "MTYEK" is not the song about his breakup with Ariana Grande.

It will be pretty "obvious" which song that is, Sykes said. "You'll know," he teased. "You'll know."

Sykes also announced yesterday he'll play six dates in the U.K. starting on April 8.

The Wanted (Sykes, Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness and Tom Parker) formed in 2009 but after three albums—and a reality show on E! about the making of their third album in Los Angeles—the group disbanded in January 2014.
