Wild Heart is a song by British pop rock band The Vamps. It was released in the United Kingdom on 19 January 2014 as the second single from their debut studio album Meet The Vamps.

BackgroundEdit

"Wild Heart" was written by all four members of The Vamps along with Amund Bjørklund, Espen Lind, Ben Harrison, Ibrahim "Ayb" Asmar, and Jamie Scott. There are eight different versions of the track to purchase, including one featuring vocals from English singer Pixie Lott.

When asked about writing the song by MTV News, guitarist James McVey expained: "We really enjoyed making [their previous single] Can We Dance but with Wild Heart we kind of experimented more with musical genre in the sense that we added a banjo and mandolin. We like to try and push ourselves into directions to try new things really and we've gone for more of a folky vibe so we hope people like it. We like to think it's a feel good song I guess." Frontman Bradley Simpson admitted that the song "influenced the rest of the album sound almost just because it was such a key song for us."

Critical ReceptionEdit

Lewis Corner of Digital Spy gave the song a mixed review, stating:

"Tonight we'll dance/ I'll be yours and you'll be mine," frontman Bradley croons over Mumford & Sons-lite guitars and beats; the kind that have been thrust firmly into the mainstream by 1D, Ed Sheeran and even Avicii in recent years. We don't blame them though as the formula has an undeniable success rate - and while 'Wild Heart' is far from pushing any kind of boundaries, you'll be hard pushed to get it out of your head anytime soon."

Chart PerformanceEdit

On 23 November, the song debuted at number six on the Irish Singles Chart. It then debuted at number three on the UK Singles Chart three days later, giving The Vamps their second consecutive UK top 3 hit.

Music VideoEdit

A "live video" was uploaded to YouTube on 22 July 2013. The official music video was directed by Dean Sherwood. It was uploaded to YouTube on 3 December 2013. As of March 2014, it has over 6 million views.

LyricsEdit

I was walking away,
But she's so beautiful it made me stay
I don't know her name,
But I'm hoping she might feel the same
So here I go again,
She got my heart again!

Tonight we'll dance
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
We won't look back,
Take my hand and we will shine
Oh, oh, oh
She needs a wild heart [2x]
I got a wild heart

Stay here, my dear,
Feels like I've been standing right here for years
My mind's beat up
Tell me that you feel this, and I won't give up
I won't give up

Tonight we'll dance
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
We won't look back,
Take my hand and we will shine
Oh, oh, oh
She needs a wild heart [2x]
I got a wild heart
Oh, oh, oh
She needs a wild heart [2x]
I got a wild heart

And I know it's late, I know it's cold
But come right here, I swear I'll never let you go
The way you move—it's wonderful
Let's do it now, 'cause one day we'll both be old
Oh whoa oh

Tonight we'll dance
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
We won't look back,
Take my hand and we will shine
Oh, oh, oh
She needs a wild heart [2x]
I got a wild heart

Tonight we'll dance
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
We won't look back,
Take my hand and we will shine
Oh, oh, oh
She needs a wild heart [2x]
I got a wild heart
Oh, oh, oh
She needs a wild heart [2x]
I've got a wild heart
