Blue have shared the new ballad 'Magnetic'.

The third single to be taken from the reunited boy band's comeback album, 'Heart and Soul', is a return to their signature soulful style, but their follow-up to 2015's 'Colours' features both up-tempo and slow numbers.

The four-piece - comprising Duncan James, Simon Webbe, Antony Costa and Lee Ryan - said: "We've never done an album where it's just one style of music the whole way through and I think we've accomplished that again with this album. 'Magnetic' shows off all our different vocal styles and we love a ballad just as much as our up-tempo tracks! We can't wait for everyone to hear the album, we are so proud of it."

The latest track from the LP follows 'Haven't Found You Yet' and a cover of 112's noughties classic 'Dance With Me'.

Blue will hit the road for a 12-date UK arena tour later this year.

The 'One Love' hitmakers previously revealed they won't be partying hard on the tour to mark two decades since the release of their debut album 'All Rise', and they are doing everything they can to make sure they're in tip-top shape.

Lee said: "I don't think we're that kind of band anymore. We have different ideas now.

"We want to put on a good show first and, being a bit older now, you can't do the dual thing of partying and putting on a good show."

Simon added: "We've got to see if we can do it physically!"
