Brian McFadden back with covers LP


Brian McFadden

Last seen absconding with a solo single borrowed off the telly, ex-Westlife star and non-date-rapist Brian McFadden is now back to doing safe, straightforward covers, and will release an LP of just such tracks on 11 Mar.

‘The Irish Connection’ will feature Irish-only duets with Sinead O’Connor (who, strangely, isn’t a named guest on Brian’s rendition of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’), Aslan’s Christy Dignam and Ronan Keating. And this is its entirely Irish-themed tracklisting:

Black Is The Colour (feat Sinead O’Connor)
All I Want Is You (feat Ronan Keating)
9 Crimes
Crazy World (feat Christy Dignam)
No Frontiers
Only Time
Nothing Compares 2 U
