Westlife, the UK’s top selling album group of the 21st century, finally return with their highly anticipated first new single in eight years, ‘Hello My Love’, released on Thursday, 10 January.
‘Hello My Love’ is written and produced by superstar hitmakers Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac, and is a soaring pop anthem featuring the band’s trademark vocals and harmonies.
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.
‘The Twenty Tour’ is Westlife’s fastest selling tour of all time. The band sold an incredible 400,000 tickets in just 48 hours. The shows will see them perform brand new songs, alongside their greatest hits and all 14 of their UK No.1 hits including as ‘Swear It Again’, ‘Flying Without Wings’, ‘You Raise Me Up’ and ‘Unbreakable’. These shows will be their first as a group since they played Croke Park in Dublin on 23rd June 2012.
