Westlife fans will be happy to learn that the Irish band have not only reunited but have also enlisted the help of Ed Sheeran for their epic comeback.
According to the Sun, Ed has secretly penned the comeback record to give Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Shane Filan and Mark Feehilythem a ‘contemporary edge’.
‘Westlife have really been pulling out all the stops for their big comeback and were desperate to get Ed on board,’ a source told the publication.
‘It took quite some time to pull together and has been done totally behind closed doors, but he has finally given them the right record to make it happen.’
With five UK number ones under his belt, 27-year-old Ed knows a little about making a hit. He is the ideal guy to help Westlife, who previously teamed up with the likes of Mariah Carey, Diana Ross and Lionel Richie, to appeal to a younger audience.
The insider adds that having the Grammy winner on-board is a ‘huge coup’ and they have already been working hard in the studio.
