Westlife have released their first single in eight years and fans can't seem to get enough of the band's new track.

The eagerly-awaited song, Hello My Love, dropped today on 2FM's Breakfast Republic after members of the band teased it on social media earlier this week.

The catchy track, which was penned and produced by Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac, will be performed live on The Graham Norton Show this Friday.

Fans have taken to Twitter in their droves to congratulate Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan on their comeback single. Even Brian McFadden, who left Westlife in 2004, congratulated his former bandmates:

Westlife announced their comeback album and tour last October and set to play two dates in Croke Park this summer.

They announced a second concert at the iconic Dublin venue after their first gig sold out in mere minutes.

The Graham Norton Show airs on Friday, January 11 on BBC One at 10.35pm.
