Before heading to Stockholm for Eurovision rehearsals, Nicky stopped by The Ray D’arcy Show, tonight. He mentioned he will go to Sweden this upcoming Tuesday, and all his family will be joining him on Eurovision week!
Nicky recently sat with RTÉ to talk all things Eurovision. The big show is just less than two weeks away, and we can’t wait to see Nicky shine on that stage! Here’s a short clip where he teases what his performance will be like… Sounds amazing!
Nicky also added that he’s very much in contact with his former Westlife bandmates; Shane, Kian and Mark.
“We’ve been in contact recently more than we ever have been in the past four years – emails and texts have been flying around. Anything I’ve seen from the boys in their own personal endeavours when they’ve been interviewed by the media has all been very positive, and privately they’ve all been very positive,” he said. “I think they’ve all probably gone ‘Only Nicky would do something like this’, he added.
As you all know, Nicky is planning to release his debut album ‘Sunlight’ on May 13th – the day after his performance at the Eurovision 2nd Semi-Finals. (You can Pre-order it HERE!)
“This album is really personality based. I’ve shared some great stories on there – personal stories and professional ones from the Westlife years. There’s a song on there called Pop Machine which is all about being in Westlife. The lads are going to love it when they hear it. I’ll send them a copy,” he laughed. “There’s also a lovely song on the album called Pretty which is a little lullaby about Gia my little daughter,” Byrne added. “I’m very proud of the album and I’ve worked hard on it. I think it’s a good pop album and I can’t wait for people to hear it and to make their own minds up.”
To continue promo week, Nicky’s interview on the Gerry Kelly Show was broadcasted this afternoon on BBC Radio Ulster. He gave more details on how his album got started and put together… Definitely worth the listen!
