Shane Filan checked in with fans on Westlife’s official web site blog on Thursday (January 29), talking about how he’s been enjoying the last six months at home and how he spent the holidays, as well as plans to begin work on new material. Filan tells readers:
We miss you all and we’re really excited about starting work on the new album. It’s going to be back-to-basics, with all new songs and no covers, like the first few albums. We’ve heard a few of the songs so far and will be hearing the rest over the next few months. I think it’s shaping up to be really good – as it’s the first album of our second decade we want it to be the best so far!
