Ronan Keating reveals he's teamed up with Robbie Williams for very special new song


Ronan Keating has just revealed some very big news!

He has teamed up with Robbie Williams for a special tribute song dedicated to former Boyzone star Stephen Gately.

Stephen sadly passed away aged 33 at his holiday home in Port D'Andratx, Majorca, on October 10 2009.

And Ronan revealed he 'had tears running down my face' after listening to the song penned by Robbie in honour of Stephen.

Speaking to, Ronan told how Robbie contacted him 'out of the blue' with a song he wrote on the 10th anniversary of Stephen's death.

"Robbie emailed me out of the blue. It was Stephen’s 10th anniversary, and the boys and I were doing a TV show in London. Robbie saw the show and he emailed me that night."

He continued: "He said "hey Ro, I have this song I wrote and I wrote it the week Stephen died." And I’m standing in my kitchen, listening to this song with tears running down my face."

"I said "let’s do something together on it it would be lovely". And then we worked on this record, it’s a very special song."

Ronan and Robbie arranged the song, called The Big Goodbye, to work as a duet and the track will feature on Ronan's new album Twenty Twenty.
