Turnaround is the fourth studio album by Irish boy band Westlife and it was released on 24 November 2003.
The first single released was the upbeat track, "Hey Whatever". The song is essentially a cover of Irish rock band Relish's Rainbow Zephyr but with a slightly changed set of lyrics and a different song title. The next single was a cover of the Barry Manilow hit, "Mandy". The band's version was an instant hit, earning them their 12th UK number one and an Irish record of the year award. "Obvious", an original song, was the third and final single released from this album. The song "Turn Around" was released on airwaves in South Africa and charted at #4. Turnaround is sold 7 million copies worldwide.
Spending much of 2009 hidden away in studios across Europe and the US, Westlife were quietly creating their most exciting album to date. Where We Are features pop’s finest producers and songwriters, including Grammy nominated Ryan Tedder (Leona Lewis "Bleeding Love" and Beyonce "Halo"), Steve Robson (James Morrison, Take That) as well as Louis Biancaniello and Sam Watters (Whitney Houston, Anastacia) and Steve Booker (Duffy), all of whom helped to create the band’s new and contemporary sound. While the tracks are instantly recognisable as Westlife classics, complete with soaring melodies and rousing lyrics, an undeniably fresh production is injected; bound to delight Westlife fans and pop enthusiasts alike.
