Following their stellar comeback ‘Hello My Love’, The UK’s top selling album group of the 21st century, Westlife have released ‘Better Man’, the second single from their forthcoming album. Listen here

The soaring contemporary ballad was written by Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac, and once again shows the band on their very best form. The group worked with award-winning Irish director Lochlainn McKenna on the video for ‘Better Man’.

“When we decided to come back, one of our first moments together as a band was to go into Steve Mac’s studio – he started to play us a song that he had just written for us with Ed Sheeran, that’s the first time we heard ‘Better Man’. That was also the exact moment when we all knew we had made the right decision. It’s a song that truly defines Westlife and one that we know will become a classic amongst our fans,” the band say of the single.

Shane, Nicky, Mark and Kian announced their return to music in October 2018 to a frenzy of media coverage and social media activity. The band have signed a new record deal with Virgin EMI, with a new album to follow in 2019.

Westlife will tour the UK and Ireland for the first time in seven years next May, June and July, with ‘The Twenty Tour’.  Celebrating Westlife’s 20th anniversary, the tour will kick off in Belfast on 25th May, with the run of live shows ending in Dublin on 5th July.

These shows will be their first as a group since they played Croke Park in Dublin on 23rd June 2012.

The band have also recently announced they’ll be taking ‘The Twenty Tour’  to Southeast Asia with 8 massive shows in July and August!
