It's over 22 year since Westlife released their debut single Swear It Again (how, please?), but Westlife are showing no signs of slowing down.

Ahead of Shane Filan, Mark Feehily, Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne's first sold-out headline Wembley Stadium show next summer, they've just released their latest single Starlight and announced a brand-spankin'-new album Wild Dreams; out on November 26th 2021.

Inspired by the 'challenges' they've faced over the past 18 months, the group claim the album 'means more' than any of their work to date and promise a record that 'captures the mood of the moment.'

Chatting about the album, Westlife said, "We are incredibly excited to announce news of our upcoming new album, which follows the amazing success of our 2019 reunion.

“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 songwriting and has helped us create a really special album that we have everything we love in music - it’s got fresh feel-good uptempo 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.”

Westlife's new single Starlight is available to stream and download now. The album, Wild Dreams, is released on November 26th 2021 and is available to pre-order now.
