Westlife, an Irish pop vocal group, is set to put out ‘Spectrum’, their eleventh studio album — after nine years of being away from the music scene.
The well-renowned group recently announced that the forthcoming body of work is expected to be out on November 15.
“Hi, we’re Westlife and you can pre-order a brand new album right now. It’s called ‘Spectrum’ and it’s the best album we’ve done ever this year,” the team of four announced in a video of them in a studio which accompanied the tweet.
The project, which would be released through Virgin EMI records, would follow after the release of ‘Gravity’, their body of work — which preceded the group’s disbanding in 2012.
It will include the singles ‘Hello My Love’, ‘Better Man’, ‘Dynamite’, and ‘My Blood’ while featuring collaborations with Ed Sheeran, Steve Mac, and James Bay.
Heralding the forthcoming project is an emotional black and white music video for ‘My Blood’, which sees the singers feature all of their children.
Ever since the group rose to fame with the debut of their self-titled studio body of work ‘Westlife’ in 1999, they have had a total of thirteen major album releases, eleven of which are studio albums.
They have also received numerous accolades including one World Music Award, two Brit Awards, four MTV Awards, four Record of the Year Awards, an overall total of 97 awards and 20 nominations (individual members’ awards not included) so far.
The group also holds Guinness World Records for being the first to achieve seven consecutive number-one singles in the UK, the most public appearances in 36 hours by a pop group, the most singles to debut at number one on the UK chart, and the top-selling album group in the 21st century UK.
