Former Westlife star Shane Filan sure sounds like he’s hoping to garner the attention of James Blunt’s fans with the music from his debut solo offering ‘You And Me’. The latest single sounds suspiciously similar both musically and vocally to James’ 2010 single ‘Stay The Night’.
Of course, we guess given James’ sales success across the globe, trying to nab some of his audience with sound-a-like material is no bad thing. But we can’t help feeling things here are a bit redundant… perhaps a little (as Madonna might say) reductive.
There’s no denying the man’s got talent and we don’t quite know what kind of music we’d like to hear Shane’s voice married to, but this sounds just too same-same for our liking.
