Westlife have revealed they worked with Picture This and Kodaline on their new album.
The Irish band’s 12th studio album ‘Wild Dreams’ is set for release on November 26, and the first single from the album ‘Starlight’ was released on Thursday morning.
Speaking on RTÉ 2fm’s breakfast show, Nicky Byrne revealed he wrote one song on the album with popular Irish band Picture This, and that the group also worked with Kodaline.
The special edition deluxe of the band’s new, 15-track album will include recently recorded live performances of some of their biggest hits – Flying Without Wings and World of Our Own.
Speaking about their new music, Westlife said: “This album means more to us than anything we have done before and has been inspired by the challenges we’ve all overcome over the last 18 months.”
“The maze of emotions we all experienced during the pandemic drew us to song writing and has helped us create a really special album that we have everything we love in music – it’s got fresh feel-good up-tempo tracks like Starlight as well as powerful, heartfelt ballads such as Always With Me.”
“Wild Dreams captures the mood of the moment. The album also offers moments of reflection and is about new beginnings, hope and looking to the future. The music is so relevant to now. It is uplifting stuff and cannot wait for the fans to hear it.”
