Lads get teary in Gave It All Away promo

Boyzone have dedicated the video for their new single to their former bandmate Stephen Gately.

Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, Mikey Graham and Keith Duffy cry as they reminisce and pen goodbye notes to him in the promo for Gave It All Away.

Director Paul Griffin has also included old clips of Stephen.

‘The footage is incredibly raw and tough to watch at times but we didn’t want it being too mournful and there’s lots of laughter,’ says Ronan, 32.

‘It’s us reminiscing about the times we had with our other brother…

‘To film this video without him was one of the toughest things we’ve done.’

Stephen recorded his vocals for Gave It All Away before he died in October at the age of 33.

The single is out on 1 March and the album Brothers follows on 8 March.

‘Carrying on with Boyzone is the biggest tribute we could ever give to Steo,’ Ronan tells The Sun.

‘So we all have to look forward, celebrate this album and look towards the future for the group.’
