Don’t expect a new WESTLIFE album in the near future. Apart from their Greatest Hits package and new single Lighthouse – penned by Take That’s Gary Barlow – and a possible tour next spring I hear the boys will be taking a year or two off to enjoy a much- needed break.
“The boys are pretty knackered,” says my source. “They’ve been constantly working for the past decade and just want time to enjoy what they’ve made for themselves before coming back with a brand-new album.
“They’re not splitting up – it’s a break. The plan is to come back with full force after that.”
The lads left SIMON COWELL and Syco in March but signed a new record deal with RCA.
