Shane Filan has announced details of his debut solo single.
The former Westlife frontman will release 'Everything To Me' on August 25 via Capitol Records.
The track was written by Filan and Nick Atkinson (Gabrielle Aplin) and produced by Grammy award-winning producer Martin Terefe (Jason Mraz, Train).
"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," Filan said in a statement.
"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!"
The song serves as the lead track to his upcoming EP, which features a further three songs penned by the star. His as-yet-untitled debut album follows later this year.
The singer recently admitted that he was "so excited" for the public to hear his solo material.
The track listing for his new EP appears below:
1. Everything To Me
4. Today's Not Yesterday
