Earlier this week, Westlife announced that they signed a new record deal with Warner Music.

The group took to Twitter on St Patrick's Day to share the news with their fans that they have signed to the East West Records, which is owned and distributed by Warner Music. 

Sharing photos of group members Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan and Markus Feehily raising a glass to toast the news, they posted, "We've got some big news for you today!

A follow-up tweet reads: "We have found a record label that share the same energy and high ambitions as the four of us, in what will be a very busy year, where there will be some surprise announcements and of course new music!" 

Westlife announced in February that they had parted ways with EMI Records "by mutual consent."
