Face to Face is the seventh studio album by Irish boy band Westlife and it was released in the UK on 31 October 2005. The album contains pop songs and some dance oriented tracks. It was also the band's second album to be released as a four-piece. It was also the band's seventh album release under RCA Records and Sony BMG.

The album was also released on DualDisc in the UK, which included the videos of the making of "You Raise Me Up", the Face to Face album photoshoot and exclusive interview footage.[5]

The album includes a cover of "She's Back" by Human Nature, "Desperado" by the Eagles, Collin Raye's number one hit "In This Life", and a Nick Carter solo song, "Heart Without a Home".

The album had more than 10,000 legal copies sold in mainland China.[6]


The first single released from the album is "You Raise Me Up", which brought the band back into the limelight after their ratpack-tribute ...Allow Us to Be Frank. The second single is a cover version of "When You Tell Me That You Love Me", which is recorded as a duet with the original singer, Diana Ross. The single reached the top 2 of the charts in December 2005, the 2nd time that the single had hit the top 2 of the charts for Diana. The final single released is "Amazing", the original mid-tempo song.

Face to Face Tour 2006

This tour set a goal that they will play in smaller venues and for smaller audiences to justify the title "Face to Face". The filmed video album for this tour came from their performance at the Wembley Arena. This also had a second leg of the tour 'summer nights' all over the biggest UK outdoor parks, castles and racing grounds.

Commercial performance

The Face to Face album became Westlife's fifth UK number-one album in seven years, selling 1.3 million in the United Kingdom[citation needed] and becoming #7 and #129 in UK Year-end albums chart for 2005 and 2006 respectively. It was the biggest selling album released by Sony BMG Entertainment in 2005.[citation needed] It is certified 4× Platinum in the UK.[7][8] It remained at #1 on the Australian ARIA charts for 4 weeks in March 2006 and was the 25th highest selling album of 2006 in Australia.[citation needed]
