Westlife manager Louis Walsh says Westlife are close to announcing a 2018 reunion and he has Ed Sheeran lined up to write for them.
Westlife broke up in 2012. Recently Westlife’s Brian McFadden and Boyzone’s Keith Duffy have been touring in their boyband supergroup Boyzlife.
Walsh told The Sun that he has already approached Sheeran as well as James Arthur to prep some songs for the reunion. “I want to give them notice to write some really good songs,” he told The Sun.
Westlife formed in 1998 although McFadden departed in 2004. They sold over 50 million records worldwide include 11.1 million albums in the UK. They recorded 10 studio albums. The last was ‘Gravity’ released in 2010. Westlife had 25 Top 40 hits in the UK.
