Westlife have unveiled the music video for their new single Hello My Love. The colourful clip which was filmed in sunny LA, captures Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan in the Californian desert and dancing around a hot air balloon.
The eagerly-awaited song premiered on Thursday, 10 January and fans were quick to take to social media to praise the band’s return to the airwaves. Even Brian McFadden, who left Westlife in 2004, congratulated his former bandmates. McFadden wrote on Twitter: “Love it! Great song great production. The boys are back!”
The catchy Hello My Love, which was penned and produced by Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac, will also be performed live on BBC1’s The Graham Norton Show tonight.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Westlife announced their return to music in October 2018 to a frenzy of media coverage and social media activity. The band have signed a new record deal with Virgin EMI, with a new album to follow in 2019.
The quartet will tour the UK and Ireland for the first time in seven years during May, June and July, with ‘The Twenty Tour’. Celebrating Westlife’s 20th anniversary, the tour will kick off in Belfast on 25 May with the run of live shows ending in Dublin on 5 July.
