New single

WESTLIFE are thrilled with their new RCA record deal after arguing with Simon Cowell’s label Syco.

Bosses refused to let Westlife release more than one single from an album.
So after 12 years, the manband have moved on to pastures new and will release a greatest hits album containing five new tracks later this year. The first single drops on August 14.
Kian Egan, 31, told me: “The new single is up-tempo and very different for Westlife. Mark Feehily co-wrote it with John Shanks.
“Simon’s company has become more about TV as the music industry is shrinking.
“We’d have arguments about wanting to release more than one single with Syco, and Simon wouldn’t even be involved. Leaving was the best decision for us.”
