Six years after breaking off, Irish pop band Westlife have announced that they are reuniting.

The If I Let You Go pop band announced their return through a video they posted in their Facebook page.

“We are Westlife’ and the caption for it said ‘Westlife. New music. New tour. Coming soon.”

The group comprises of four artists: Kian Egan, Nicky Byrne, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan after the fifth member Brian McFadden left the group in 2004.

The reunion comes just a few days before the release of their hit single which they have featured British pop star  Ed Sheeran expected to be released before the end of the year.

The reunion comes 20 years after the group was formed.
