Christmas has come early, and Westlife are about to make your dreams come true with new music.
The band responsible for absolute bangers When Youre Looking Like That and Swear It Again confirmed a reunion tour back in October, and tickets immediately became almost as difficult to get hold of as Spice Girls ones.
While were all for a greatest hits performance, fans were secretly hoping that theyd get some new bops from the band – and were in luck. Despite being quiet about new music up until now, Nicky Byrne just revealed that theyll be dropping something in the New Year.
Here we go again! he wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of the four band members in the recording studio. Having just announced two Cardiff dates that brings the Twenty Tour to 32 shows so far next summer in Ireland/UK.
A brand new album after 8years coming in 2019!
But it all kicks off on The Graham Norton Show January 11th with our brand new single.
This is BIG NEWS.
Rumours began that the boys would be releasing new music when they first announced the tour, and it was even speculated that Ed Sheeran has been enlisted to help them create a hit.
According to the Sun, Ed has secretly penned the comeback record to give Nicky, Kian Egan, Shane Filan and Mark Feehily a contemporary edge.
Westlife have really been pulling out all the stops for their big comeback and were desperate to get Ed on board, a source told the publication.
It took quite some time to pull together and has been done totally behind closed doors, but he has finally given them the right record to make it happen.
Westlife went their separate ways in October 2011, as they had run out of steam and lost the love for what they are doing.
Brian McFadden quit the group in 2004 following a number of disagreements with his bandmates.
During their 14 years together, Westlife dominated the charts and sold over 44 million of records worldwide.
Bring on the next hit!
