Brian McFadden is back with a new single. Yes he is. And this time he’s got a hit on his hands for sure. Having seemingly given up on the idea of writing his own songs (can’t think why), the former Westlifer found his latest song via an Irish reality TV show.

RTE’s ‘The Hit’ is an interesting twist on the traditional telly talent show format, pitting songwriters against each other, with the winner having their song released by a top pop star. Or, in this case, Brian McFadden. The eight finalists were selected by producer Steve Lillywhite, who’s worked on a hit or two in his time, with the winner being chosen by McFadden himself. The track was then recorded by McFadden with producer Rob Conley and Irish band Royseven.

Upon its release in Ireland, the single, ‘Invisible’, written by Ian Colgan and Shane Butler, went to number 38 in the Irish Top 40. The single will be released in the UK on 28 Sep, so we’ll have to wait and see if it can do better without the backing of a TV show.
