Boyzlife announce new album

By | Published on Thursday 20 January 2022


Boyzlife – that’s Keith Duffy from Boyzone and Brian McFadden once of Westlife – have announced that they will release their first album of original material, titled ‘Old School’, in May.

“Keith and I grew up in the 80s and 90s, the sound of that era is what made us want to be musicians in the first place”, says McFadden. “When we first started talking about making this record as Boyzlife’s first [original material] album, we naturally talked about those influences a lot and have loved bringing these familiar sounds into our studio sessions and onto this record”.

“Working with our producer Jackson has been an extremely creative process, we went into the studio with lyric ideas, worked together to find a melodic sound to go with the lyrics and built the songs from there”, he continues. “Some things just fit into place and others get chopped and changed until we all agree we are on the right track. We are very excited about this album and can’t wait for people to hear it”.

The duo’s debut album, ‘Strings Attached’, was released last year. That saw them re-record Boyzone and Westlife songs with the backing of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and reached number twelve on the UK albums chart.

‘Old School’ will be released on 6 May.
