Shane Filan isn’t the only one former Westlife member confirming his album details today as former band-mate Markus Feehily has just announce the release of his album Fire.
Released on 16th October 2015, Fire will be available through Harmoney Entertainment via Kobalt Label Services. A heartfelt and personal album, Fire features first single Love is A Drug and sees Markus embracing different sounds than fans have heard before.
Recorded in L.A., Fire sees Markus working with producers and writers including Mojam (Emeli Sande, Sam Smith), Jim Eliot (Ellie Goulding ‘Anything Can Happen’, Sigma, Ella Henderson, Olly Murs), Jakwob (Kyla La Grange, Little Simz) & Nexus (Lana Del Rey, Hurts).
Talking about the album’s name Markus says, “Calling my album ‘Fire’ is a two sided thing. Fire represents the dark times I went through while writing the album, but also my actual song ‘Fire’ from the deluxe album is about finding new love and having the strength to pull through the tough times. So it has both positive and negative sides to it just like actual fire.”
The tracklisting for the record is:
1. Love Is A Drug
2. Wash the Pain Away
4. Cut You Out
6. Back To Yours
8. Simple Love
9. Only You
10. Love Me Or Leave Me Alone
