Ronan Keating - Ronan Keating's 'Anthemic Pop' Album

Ronan Keating's new album has an ''anthemic pop feel''.

The Boyzone singer is excited about the release of his next solo project and says the material is a radical departure from anything he has done before.

He said: ''I'm finishing the album this week, I've been in London mixing, and it will be out in August.

''It's called 'Fires' - my first studio album in six years. Quite exciting for me, brand new material. It's got that anthemic pop feel to it. There's not a lot of ballads on there, just one or two so very different from what I've done before.''

Despite working hard on his album, Ronan - who recently split with wife Yvonne after 14 years of marriage - has found the time to take a little break and have some fun with friends.

Speaking at the Isle of Wight festival last weekend he told Absolute Radio: ''I'm here, there's a gang of us just hanging out, it's nice. Friends getting together and enjoying the music they love.

''I haven't been to a lot of festivals but a friend of mine was playing in his reformed band, Little Angels. I've never seen Bruce Springsteen before but I'm really looking forward to his set, he's amazing.''
