Ronan Keating is "nervous" about releasing new music
The `When You Say Nothing At All` singer is back in the studio to work on more solo material following a stint touring with his group Boyzone last year, and while he admits he is worried about its reception, he is simply doing it for himself.
He told BANG Showbiz: "It`s not folk. It`s a mix! It`s a pop album. Gregg Alexander and I are working together again. It`s got that `Life is a Rollercoaster` feel again. I`m having fun with it again, it`s been five years since I`ve done a studio album. I`m a little bit nervous.
"I just want to make a great record, for me, rather than for anyone else."
The Irish star - who is also a judge on the Australian version of `X Factor` alongside Melanie B, Natalie Bassingthwaite and Guy Sebastian - will also be reuniting with his Boyzone bandmates Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham and Shane Lynch in the near future to celebrate their 20th anniversary as a group.
He said: "Next year Boyzone will be 20 years gone, so we`ll be doing something."
