Westlife would love to collaborate with Elton John

The band is known for its power ballads and key changes, but in a bid to reclaim their chart-topping status the boys are considering another big-name collaboration. 

Speaking of adding to their repertoire of duets, including Against All Odds with Mariah Carey and the Ed Sheeran-penned Hello My Love, Shane says: “If we did Westlife featuring KSI, honestly, my kids would think it was cooler than anything with Ed or Mariah.

“I still think we should do something with Sir Elton John. He is a legend and no one is getting tired of him any time soon.

“He is Mr Piano Man and we have been known to like a few piano ballads in our time, so someday I think it will happen. I’d like it to happen. Us and him together would be pretty awesome.”

Westlife’s latest album ‘Wild Dreams’ is out since November 26 and, while the boys are hoping to match the chart-topping success of their comeback LP ‘Spectrum’, they aren’t betting on a No. 1 single. 

“It gets harder the older you get,” Nicky Byrne tells The Sun. “All the radio stations and the places we used to go… we are almost experiencing ageism. We can’t get our song on radio. What is going on? We are not hip and we are not cool.

“It’s not just us, it’s a generation of people, like Take That and Robbie Williams. But when we sit back and we are confident with the songs, then we can still be proud.”

‘Wild Dreams’ is available on CD and cassette. An Amazon exclusive edition is also available.
