Boyzlife announce new album Old School
By Classic Pop | January 19, 2022
Boyzlife, the duo made of Keith Duffy (formerly of Boyzone) and Brian McFadden (formerly of Westlife) have today revealed the title, release date and tracklist of their first original material studio album, Old School, due on 6 May.
The album follows last year’s single, The One, which was co-written by McFadden with songwriting titan Guy Chambers.
Regarding what fans should expect from the album, McFadden suggests that it’ll have a retro vibe.
“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,” he says. “When we first started talking about making this record as Boyzlife’s first studio album, we naturally talked about those influences a lot and have loved bringing these familiar sounds into our studio sessions and onto this record.”
They continue: “Working with our producer Jackson has been an extremely creative process, we went into the studio with lyrics ideas, worked together to find a melodic sound to go with the lyrics and built the songs from there. 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.”
Since their inception, Boyzlife have already performed some of their greatest chart hits for over 70,000 fans, with the second leg of their UK tour now finally underway.
Of being back on the road the band said: “We couldn’t wait to get back on the road after the last 18 months away! It’s fantastic to be back doing what we love and seeing happy, smiling faces every night. Our new rescheduled dates for 2021 are live on our website with a few new dates added in.”
Strings Attached, the debut album by Boyzlife, featured nine No.1 songs from Boyzone and Westlife, performed by Keith, Brian and accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London.
It was released on 17 July 2020, topping both the UK & Ireland’s iTunes and Amazon music charts and peaking at No.12 in the UK Album Chart.
