Found this on Shane's facebook

Is this the Lighthouse studio? I know it is located at a lake and has lots of cool features. (garden, sauna etc.)

New single (not by Jörgen, but Martin Terefe)

Shane Filan Everything To Me

It's not the SUPER hit I expected, judging from first listening, but I feel this is a big grower.



Quote
“I am incredibly excited to have joined Capitol Records, and being back in the studio in London and Nashville recording new songs has been amazing. Working on solo material is something I had always dreamed of doing, and I’m incredibly happy with the results. ‘Everything to Me’ is a very personal song to me lyrically; it is such an upbeat and optimistic record, perfect for the summer. I can’t wait for people to hear it!”

I get that he's gone for the acoustic indie vibe, but that single doesn't do anything for me (pun intended). Looking forward to his Jörgen tracks though, as long as the brief hasn't limited him to this sort of thing. I guess they don't want it to sound like a solo Westlife record.

I guess it was hard to find a direction for him. Westlife were famous for covers (!), Steve Mac power-ballads and Swedish mid-tempo songs.

Nothing would probably work these days, so I guess going a Jason Mraz-ish maybe even country-direction could appeal to his now also matured Westlife-fanbase.

But I still hope for the big Jörgen ballad.

Same! I wasn't a die hard fan but I did quite like Westlife. Funnily enough, without even knowing it at the time, all the Westlife singles I ever bought were all Jörgen's.

Single did not enter the Top 10.

Next single has been announced "About you"

Don't think it's a Jörgen song.


But some Jörgen songs have been registered at ASCAP:

YOUR ORDINARY MAN
ELOFSSON JORGEN KJELL   STIM   226071889
FILAN SHANE   IMRO   268464236

NO ONE S IN CONTROL
ELOFSSON JORGEN KJELL   STIM   226071889
FILAN SHANE   IMRO   268464236
And I liked it..

"About you"

https://soundcloud.com/shanefilan/about-you-clip

Sounds like the band Train - but I quite like it. More Westlife than the debut single.

Co-Written by Steve Mac and Wayne Hector (the guys behind countless Westlife songs and more)
And I liked it..

Songs from Ascap are not on the album.

But maybe they wrote some other songs or they will be B-Sides.

I way prefer "About You". I agree it is like Train, but "Everything to Me" is too much like Jason Mraz

I don't think Shane will have much success unfortunately. It is just too hard for boy band members to go solo, and this music is too safe.

He really needs to include the Jorgen songs!

Yeah, "About You" is so much better, but the "Drops Of Jupiter" hook is a bit close for comfort. Will we ever get to hear his work with Jörgen?
