Westlife’s return was inspired by Beyoncé
The When You’re Looking Like That band is currently on a comeback tour. They decided to “take charge” of their career after seeing the Crazy In Love hitmaker’s Coachella documentary, Homecoming, on Netflix.
Kian Egan told the Daily Star newspaper’s ‘Wired’ column: “I remember watching the Beyoncé documentary and it was funny, you could see how much of a captain she was on her own ship and for a long time we used to let people do it for us.
“But after watching that documentary I remember ringing the boys up and going: ‘Have you seen the documentary? Watch it, we need to be in charge, we need full control.’ ”
Mark Feehily revealed that the group – completed by Nicky Byrne and Shane Filan – are plotting a behind-the-scenes film of their own to show fans what they’re really all about
He added: “We would love people to know a little more of us, as people because historically the label kept a very clean image of us.
“And when people think of Westlife they think of stools, key changes and that’s part of it. But I don’t think people have truly seen our personalities.”
He confirmed that filming is underway at the moment, and they’ll be looking into what they can do with the footage once the project is finished.
Meanwhile, Westlife will also be releasing a new album Spectrum later this year
They previously explained: “‘Spectrum’ is a title that represents the various different shades and colours of our personalities, vocals and general perspectives that all blend together in a unique way to create Westlife.
“It’s also a word that represents the various shades and colours in the band, meaning it’s the perfect metaphor for our different points of view and perspectives but together, they somehow join to work perfectly.”
