Following their sensational comeback to music earlier this year, the highly anticipated new album Spectrum by Irish pop superstars, Westlife is now out.
The 11 track album showcases the band’s world-renowned vocal prowess with a collection of fresh pop anthems and soul-stirring ballads, featuring original new music.
Its arrival follows a spectacular comeback year for the jewels of pop music, which once again saw the country fall in love with them.
Recorded in Dublin, LA and London, Spectrum is released as Westlife makes history in pop music as they are officially confirmed in the 21st century as the best selling Irish band in the UK.
“We all tried to create the best album of our careers. We wanted to make something different, something that feels fresh.” “The huge success of our comeback single’ Hello My Love’ gave us the belief that our fans and the audience are totally up to a new album of original songs. We’ve probably had more input into this album than anybody else in our careers.”
“We’re excited to hear it for everyone,” the band says.
Talking about their collaborative work with Ed Sheeran and meeting with iconic music-maker Steve Mac, who penned some of the biggest hits of the group, Westlife adds: “The album was a huge team effort and it was great to work with our long-term friend Steve Mac, James Bay and Ed Sheeran. No doubt they helped us make this album the best it can be.”
The group have announced a 2020 stadium tour that will culminate in their first performance at the Wembley Stadium on August 22.
Westlife has sold more than 55 million albums worldwide and is the only band to have their first seven singles in the No.1 UK chart.
Worldwide, they had 33 No.1 albums and sold 5 million concert tickets worldwide as a live act.
