Westlife’s Shane Filan has signed, on a solo proviso, with Universal’s London Records. His first LP is set to be released in the latter half of this year.

Says Shane, who’s finessing the disc in Nashville and London (not at the same time) as he speaks: “I am so excited to be joining London Records and Universal Music, and being back in the studio recording new songs has been amazing. One of the things that pleases me the most about this record is that I’ve been given the opportunity to write my own songs. I’m so excited for people to hear them!”

Meanwhile Shane’s manager, one Louis Walsh, barges in with: “This is a fantastic new deal for Shane, we are thrilled to be part of the team at London Records”.
