Westlife have shared the news of their new deal with Warner Music UK's East West Records to mark St Patrick's Day.
Westlife have signed a new record deal with Warner Music UK label East West Records.
Last month, it was revealed that the 'What About Now' hitmakers - made up of Shane Filan, Markus Feehily, Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne - parted ways with EMI over two years after the release of their 2019 album 'Spectrum', which topped the charts in the UK and featured five songs written by Ed Sheeran.
A spokesman for the band said at the time: "They’ve agreed a mutual parting of ways with EMI and details of a new and groundbreaking partnership are imminent.
“The next 18 months are shaping up to be the band’s busiest, including a new album, sold-out stadium shows — featuring a first show at Wembley Stadium — plus their biggest-ever global tour, which will include their first-ever American shows.
“The band are also considering opportunities for a spectacular end-of-year TV show and a documentary special.”
And on St Patrick's Day (17.03.21), the Irish group have announced their label news and teased new music.
They said: “Not only is it St Patrick’s Day but we are also celebrating our brand new partnership with East West and Warner Music. We have found a record label that share the same energy and high ambitions as the four of us, in what will be a very busy year, where there will be some surprise announcements and of course new music!”
Jeremy Marsh, head of Rhino UK and East West Records, added: “Westlife are one of the most popular and commercially successful boy bands of all time, and we’re thrilled to be working with them to share their new music– their fans are going to be blown away by what’s coming! At East West, we believe we can find new and interesting spaces for them, and we already have a lot of ideas in full swing. It’s also great to be reunited with Sonny Takhar and to be working together again after 20 years!”
