One of our favourite '90s boy bands is making a comeback and we couldn’t be more excited!
Westlife unveiled their brand new song and it will truly give you all the feels.
The track, Better Man, includes the emotional lyrics: "How do you lose the one you love? / After giving it all, you gave it up / And maybe my love wasn't enough / You think you know, but you never can / How do you lose your only plan? / Oh darling, just give me one more chance / And I'll give you everything I have / I'll try to be a better man."
It turns out Westlife actually teamed up with none other than British superstar Ed Sheeran for the track. Ed co-wrote Better Man along with Fred Gibson and Steve Mac.
Earlier this year Westlife also released another single, Hello My Love, which also featured Ed Sheeran’s songwriting skills.
"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," band member Mark Feehily told metro.co.uk.
"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."
Hello My Love features the swoon-worthy lyrics: "Hello, my love / I've been searching for someone like you / For most my life / Happiness ain't a thing I'm used to / You could have fallen hard for anyone / Plenty of fish in the sea, hey now / For all of time, now I know / It's just my angel and me."
The singles come ahead of a brand new album, set to be released in September 2019, which is Westlife’s first album in nine years after their 2010 record Gravity.
The Irish pop group currently consists of Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily, and Shane Filan, with former member Brian McFadden opting not to re-join band.
