Where We Are

Album: Where We Are (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This Ryan Tedder-penned song is the title track of Westlife's tenth studio album.
  • Shane Filan of Westlife discussed this song in publicity materials: "It's an amazing song, it was the first song he (Ryan Tedder) played to us when we went to a studio. Again we wanted to work with him for a long time. He's done a lot of great songs in the last few years this is a very uplifting song, it's great and kinda in a way the title track of the album kinda represents where we are as a band. It just made sense to call the album that and the song itself as well, kinda you can feel that in the song. You know, 'Where we are is where we're supposed to be' it feels like we could've wrote it, you know. It's got bit to it, it's uptempo, it's uplifting and I think it will be a fans' favourite on the album."
