Finally, it’s here.

We never thought we’d see the day that Westlife would reunite let alone, release new music and so; 2019 is proving to be the best year yet as we’re getting both.

Today, the foursome dropped “Hello My Love”, their first single in eight years, which is written by Ed Sheeran and produced by Steve Mac.

Speaking to the Metro UK on the release of the track, band member Kian Egan said: “It isn’t your typical Westlife song” however,  that isn’t stopping fans from loving it so far.

Speaking about working with Ed Sheeran to create the track, Mark Feehily added what an honour it is, having known him for so long; watching his career grow.

“It’s quite an honour because Ed is now one of the biggest stars in the world but also when I first met him, he was just doing gigs in bars and he was not very widely known.

“When I met him that time, he was a huge Westlife fan and learnt to play the guitar to one of our greatest hits and he just loved Westlife. I thought that’s really cool, this really talented singer-songwriter loves Westlife.”

Westlife will be hitting the stage in Croke Park on Friday, July 5 and Saturday, July 6 to celebrate 20 years of hits (yes, 20!!!) And 14 number one tracks.
