Westlife ‘Lighthouse’ FIRST Review after our exclusive listen04/10/2011 04:21
Westlife are back with a brand new single so get ready to sway, and wave those lighters in the air.
Yahoo! omg! were lucky enough to have a top secret FIRST listen to their new track ‘Lighthouse’ in full yesterday.
The CD was literally carried to our office, played to us and then smuggled back in a secure operation which made us feel a bit like we were in a Bond film.
And we can indeed confirm that it’s the Irish boys back at their best.
Think Elton John, pianos and romance as the song opens gently.
But before long it gives way to a rich, uplifting chorus like some of Westlife’s best ballads – but with a touch of Take That in there too (Gary Barlow wrote it so it’s hardly surprising).
With lyrics like “For a man who rarely cried/I get all choked up inside” we can see ourselves kicking autumnal leaves as this blares out of our ipods.
Rather like the video, by the looks of these brand new behind-the-scenes shots of their video shoot!
Westlife fans, we challenge you not to like it.
Lighthouse’ out on Nov 13th. Lead single from their Greatest Hits album, out Nov 21.
