Hey guys, welcome to the all new westlife.com!
The first phase of our 2010 assault is the launch of our fabulous new website! We love the connection we have with our fans thru westlife.com and have kept all the good bits from the old site but added some great new things such as brand new multiple choice skins so u can choose how 'your westlife.com' looks, a new and fresh discography tool, and also we can officially announce in a very exciting manner that 'WESTLIFE RADIO' will be coming very soon!
We will be announcing the second single soon and are itching to get back at it in general... can't wait!
Lots of love from the boys x

Just wanted to wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you all had great time and are now enjoying the snow. It was nice for all of us to get some rest over xmas and new year and recharge ourselves for a busy year ahead. We all got to go home and spend some time with our families which was great being back in Ireland. We also have a new addition joining the Westlife clan very soon. Shane is about to become a daddy for the 3rd time so all very exciting!
For those of you that have bought the album, we hope you like it! Thanks again for all the support last year and were really looking forward to what this year brings. Can’t wait to see you all at the tour in May!
Look out for BIG changes coming for westlife.com too! It's all kicking off again and we are getting very excited!
Will write again soon
Lots of love
Mark, Shane, Nicky and Kian

Today is a MASSIVE day for us four boys...all the waiting, singing, preparing, promotion, commotion, revolve around one thing, our NEW ALBUM, WHERE WE ARE! The fact that it’s OUT NOW (AS IN TODAY!!!) is highly exciting! The single is one thing but the fact that the entire collection of 12 brand new ORIGINAL songs are out there being heard all at once is huuuge for us! Go get the album, give it a listen, who knows ya might even like it! Seriously though, thanks to anyone who’s got it or is going to get it, we appreciate your support more than ever!
Lots of love,
See you soon,

Hey guys, this last week has been absolutely incredible for us four... we have gone from our lengthy break and downtime into the buzz and chaos that only the music world can bring!
X Factor performance to an early GMTV slot and what a laugh we had doing the webchat having had only four hours sleep! We've also started our press campaign this week with numerous phone interviews and photo shoots with Heat and Cosmopolitan magazines all coming out soon..
Our radio promo has begun too with lots of interviews around UK and Ireland and we head off on a radio tour next week to some major UK cities, all will be revealed!
Us four lads back on our tour bus now, that's gonna be funny! Final video edit is coming soon and album artwork is looking amazing too… so as you can see we are most definitely back with a bang and it feels great…
Hope you are enjoying "What About Now" and looking forward to "Where We Are" the album which I promise, you'll love.
Don't forget to catch us on The One Show on BBC1 on Friday !!!
Le Gra Nicky....

Dear Fans, it’s been a while. We have much to tell you!
Earlier this year there was a meeting in London. Not long after that meeting, the search for new songs began. We searched far and wide. Our search proved to be very successful and we can’t conceal our excitement any longer! It is our great pleasure to announce the following...
There WILL be a new album this year. We are very happy with all the new songs and simply cannot wait to hear what you think of them! Regarding the website, it’s out with the old and in with the new so hold tight for brand new pictures and layout coming soon plus all the info on forthcoming promotional schedules...
We've missed you all very much and can’t wait to catch up!
For now watch this space,
Love from Kian, Mark, Nicky and Shane x
