Ever since Hozier's debut album, we've been counting down the days until his sophomore effort is released.

The critically-acclaimed work sold a whopping 4 million albums worldwide, so his next one has a lot to live up to.

Andrew Hozier Byrne has waited FOUR-AND-A-HALF YEARS to give us the goods, but we won't hold it against him.

His second album is titled Wasteland Baby! is officially coming out on March 1, and he's given us a new song to listen to while we wait.

The artist captioned the video; "I’m thrilled to announce my new album Wasteland, Baby!" 

"The album has been over a year in the making and it’s a pleasure to finally turn out my pockets and share the work. I want to sincerely thank fans and listeners for their continued support in between the records. See you out on the road soon.”

The new album follows Hozier's recent EP Nina Cried Power which features tunes inspired by his love for the world of music.

The singer from Wicklow name-checks civil rights advocates and musicians such as Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, James Brown, Joni Mitchell and Mavis Staples, who appears on the record.

The tracklist from Wasteland Baby! has 14 songs on it, including Movement; his latest single has been streamed over 21 million times in two months.

We can listen to the new song Almost (Sweet Music) while we wait for the album, which is sure to be HUGE.

Only 44 days until the release, but who's counting?

Westlife have just released a brand new single called Hello My Love, and naturally fans have damn near lost their sanity over it.

The boyband are set to release their first album since 2010's Gravity, and The Twenty Tour is already the group's fastest selling tour of all time.

Mark, Shane, Nicky and Kian will play massive Croke Park dates in July, which has fans ecstatic in expectation.

An INSANE 400,000 tickets were sold in just 48 hours, so you can bet on their new single being played on the radio pretty much 24 hours a day from now on.

Their new tune, Hello My Love, was written by renowned pop hitmakers Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac, so it's bound to be a successful chart-topper.

However, one perceptive Twitter user named Aifric noticed the peculiar lyrics about hair which are featured in the song, and now we're confused.

In case you've been living under a sizeable rock and have missed the furore, the semi-romantic lyrics are;

"'Cause you could have someone without a belly or a temper, perfect teeth, hair growing where's meant to…"

Hair growing where it's meant to? 

Aifric commented; "the lyrics to the new Westlife song are…grim," pointing out the strangeness of body hair being featured in a supposed love song.

What exactly is the definition of 'hair growing where it's meant to'? We're fairly sure that all hair grows where it's meant to, it's called EVOLUTION lads. Look it up.

We genuinely hadn't noticed the lyrics, we were too busy blasting the tune and wrangling randomers online to try and get a Croke Park ticket, but now we're investigating the song for science purposes only.

*Strokes beard thoughfully*

Seeing as we're an extremely balanced source, we decided to search for other Westlife fans (or foes) who have expressed opinions on the lyrics.

One Twitter user @ghoulenaloops, wrote that the lyrics go straight to the heart, proclaiming; "That's LOVE'. Alright then, if you say so.

Some fans don't have any issue with the lyrcs, it seems. Maybe the boys meant it in a 'this girl is far too good for me' way?

After all, the chorus suggests that the writer of the song emphasises that his lady is so perfect, that he's punching far above his weight.

"Hello, my love, I've been searching for someone like you for most of my life, happiness ain't a thing I'm used to. You could have fallen hard for anyone, plenty of fish in the sea…
For all of time, now I know, It's just my angel and me."

The boyband essentially specialise in ballads and pop songs revolving around a (female) love interest, but this tune kind of implies that the lad is insecure AF.

Twitter had some more…interesting… reactions, mainly from fans who choose to ignore the eccentric lyrics out of sheer dedication to the band.

Others hilariously commented on the fact that any decent assumptions which were made about the physique of the Westlife lads were being steadily shattered;

@Wendybird1 wrote that the lyric is, heaven forbid, ruining illusions about Shane Filan's 'perfect body'. The poor woman must be devastated.

Another fan with a 'wee soft spot' for the musical foursome commented that the lads are…*gasp* 'SCRAPING THE BARREL with these lyrics. Ouch, that one hurt.

Typically, society tells men that hair growing in the 'wrong' place translates to back hair, nostril hair and even hair sprouting out of ears.

If we fight back against the patriarchy controlling women's body hair (anyone who has experienced a Hollywood wax knows the PAIN), shouldn't we encourage men to embrace their bodies in their natural state?

Society shouldn't have any say in an individual's body and its preference of hair, but perhaps Westlife like a bit of male grooming?

Manscaping has become a major trend for men in recent years, which is essentially the equivalent of a bikini wax.

However, some ladies love a hairier man. Everyone has their own styles and preferences, who are we to define them?

What are your thoughts on the lyrics, innocent male insecurity or just plain body-shaming?

Give us your receipts, our scientific investigation on the mane matter rages on…

Westlife's brand new single Hello My Love has OFFICIALLY been released, after airing on Breakfast Republic on RTE 2FM this morning.

The boyband uploaded a short video to Twitter confirming the catchy pop track's release, and the internet went into absolute meltdown.

The tune was written by renowned pop hitmakers Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac, so it's bound to make it to the top of the charts.

In the short clip, Kian Egan announces to their ecstatic fanbase; "Our brand new single Hello My Love is out right now!"

The boys will be performing the new single on tomorrow night's The Graham Norton Show, which is set to be a big night for Shane, Kian, Mark and Nicky.

The lads are releasing their first album in a whopping EIGHT LONG YEARS, and it's safe to say our hearts may just stop when it drops.

Westlife will finish their tour with two massive dates at Croke Park in Dublin this July, which had tickets flying out the door.

The four members shared a photo which appeared to have been taken inside GAA Headquarters before the tour was confirmed, teasing their Croke Park gigs to excited fans.

The Twenty Tour is the boybands' fastest selling tour of all time, it sold an INSANE 400,000 tickets in just 48 hours.

In other news, Westlife have dismissed consistent rumours that Brian McFadden is to rejoin the band, commenting that: “Everyone is talking about this except us.”

It's Robbie Williams vs Take That drama all over again. At least we're getting a brand new chune and a tour?

We don't even know if we're ready for the explosion of Westlife fever which will ensue from their single, prepare yourselves gals.

It took less than 24 hours for the Cloud 10 Beauty 12 Days of Slay Gift Set to COMPLETELY sell out, that must be some kind of record. They are now releasing a waiting list for their second batch, thank God.

The famed online Irish beauty emporium decided that it was time to compile a gift of skincare and cosmetic treats, and the response was HUGE. The overall collection is worth €172 but is being sold for just €75, hence the massive rush to grab it.

The gift set features gorge beauty products from brands such as The Ordinary, Stila, DuWop and favourites such as the Benefit Gold Rush mini, Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, PIXI Retinol Tonic and Vita Liberata Body Blur.

After the first drop flew out of stock in such a short space of time, pre-orders already flooded in for the second drop, which is set to ship in early December.

Pippa O'Connor Ormond, renowned Instagram influencer, said on her story last night that:

“Because it is such good value and the products are really good I know they will go quickly, so if you do want it I wouldn't be hanging around," and just after she revealed the set, they were totally gone.

Britney Spears is a 90s icon, and when the news broke that the Overprotected singer was taking her Vega residency international, the fact that there was a Dublin date on the list was major.

The date was set for August 20, and fans began anticipating the difficulties of securing tickets.  

Tickets for the covetable gig went on sale this morning, and according to dismayed Twitter users, sold out in minutes.. 

Tickets for the 3 Arena concert were going for a reasonable €68.50..

However, they are now being sold on Ticketmaster's re-sale website, Seatwave, for a whopping price. 

The resale site has prices for tickets listed of up to €1000 – each. 

There are four tickets available for the 3Arena gig being sold on the site for €1000.00 each, coming toa grand total, including booking fee, of €4719.96. 

The cheapest standing ticket on the resale site, priced at €175 in total, is still more than double the original cost of the tickets. 

And, they're being snapped up by disappointed fans who could not access the Ticketmaster site the first time around. 

A number of listed prices on the Seatwave website were connected to broken links as the tickets were 'no longer available' due to being purchased. 

Fans are outraged by the massive cost of the re-sale tickets, and are calling for better regulation of ticket sales.

If you're one of the thousands who have spent all week salivating over the thought of getting your hands on a Coldplay ticket, then it's likely you're pretty disappointed right now.

While countless fans prepped and primed themselves for this morning's ticket release, it looks like it just wasn't meant to be for so many Irish fans today.

According to emerging reports this morning, the Croke Park gig sold out in apparently just one minute… although we're thinking approximately 30 is more likely.

And Twitter is not happy at all.

This morning, Kate Middleton and Prince William visited Cornwall in the UK and while there, stopped off at the Eden Project.

Since it was a rainy day, Kate opted to ditch her usual knee-length dresses and wore a pair of stylish trousers instead.

Stylish, high-street trousers that have now SOLD out online since the Duchess was pictured wearing them less than a few hours ago.

However, you can still buy a pair that have a near identical design to Kate's right here.

Just be quick, it looks like they'll be all sold out soon!

Sure – the Urban Decay Naked palette is DIVINE! But, it's also a rather steep €47 a pop – which means it's largely consigned to Christmas/birthday present from your parents territory. 

Fear not, however.

Because we have now laid eyes on the Penneys version: same gorgeous neutral shades of purples and browns with a gentle shimmer (it especially looks like the Naked 3 version), same great packaging – but all for a fiver. 

Yup, €5. 

Clearly we're not the only that have been oh-so giddy with excitement, however: when the PS range palette arrived in stores recently it sold out pretty much immediately.

At least this morning we've been given some good news: we've been chatting to Penneys and they've confirmed that more stock IS LANDING very soon.

Hallelujah!

Sadly, they haven't been able to give us an exact date – but we will keep you posted.

And in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled in Penneys because the second batch is sure to prove every bit as popular as the first.

It seems that the Kate Middleton effect has stuck again!

Following on from the Royal Tour of Australia, where Kate wore a banana-hued frock by Roksanda Ilincic, Ebay reported a 95% increase in sales of yellow dresses in the four days after she wore it.

And on the day she wore the dress, Google reported a surge in searches for “yellow dress” and “Kate yellow dress”.

Some leading high street stores are also said to be selling out of similar styles at lightning speed and have been putting rush orders through to get more in before summer.

So, while William told Kate she looked a bit “like a banana” in the dress, it seems fashion fans are frantic about picking up the frock.

The yellow dress is not the only one of her style pieces that have led to a fashion feeding frenzy.

Wrap dresses and cork wedges became highly searched-for-items during the Royal Tour after Kate wore a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress and four-inch wedge heels.

Can this girl put a fashion foot wrong?!
