It’s a shame that ‘Love Is A Drug’, the lead single from former Westlife singer Markus Feehily’s forthcoming debut album failed to fire.
Produced by the incredible Steve Anderson, it was grand, epic and we suspected it’d connect with the kind of British music fans who’d sent the likes of Emeli Sandé and Sam Smith to the top of the UK charts. It didn’t.
Undeterred, however, Markus is moving swiftly along in the lead-up to the release of his long-awaited debut solo album ‘Fire’ in October with the second single to be lifted from it, ‘Butterfly’.
It’s another big, dramatic, stylishly-produced pop number, complete with a little dash of ‘Big Yellow Taxi’ in the lyric, impressive vocals and a contemporary dance routine in the middle of a lavender field.
