Released 17th May, 2010
Love Is A Hurricane, the brand new single, is to be released on 17th May, continuing what has already been a memorable year for Keith, Mikey, Ronan and Shane . The release of their recent album Brother (their fourth studio album) catapulted straight to the top of the charts and, after spending the second week at Number 2, it headed straight back to Number 1 for a second time where it stayed for a further two weeks.
The exciting chart news was further topped off by a UK tour announcement that will see the boyz taking the Brother album on the road for a number of dates through February and March of next year.
This new album has been an exciting and important release as it saw them forging ahead for the first time as a four-piece group. The finished product is an album that all of the boyz are incredibly proud of. It showcases a new sound and direction for the group and takes them down a road that is more heavily driven by rockier pop; anthemic, catchy choruses and huge melodies demonstrate how the boyz sound has grown and progressed, without straying too far for their well established pop roots. The album is produced by Grammy nominated producer, Greg Wells, who has worked with the likes of Katy Perry, OneRepublic, Natasha Bedingfield, Mika and Timbaland.
Love Is A Hurricane has already established itself as a firm favourite from the album with the fans. After debuting the track on their ITV1 show Boyzone: A Tribute To Stephen Gately, the reaction from fans made the choice of the second single an easy decision. An upbeat, feel good, infectious pop anthem; Love Is A Hurricane was written by New Radicals front man, Gregg Alexander who has previously written for Ronan’s solo albums as well as other artists including Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Enrique Iglesias, Texas and Rod Stewart, to name but a few.
2010 looks set to be a very busy year for the new foursome with more singles to follow, international markets to visit and then on to tour preparation, ready to get back out on the road in early 2011.
Love Is A Hurricane is released on 17th May on Polydor Records
