It will be preceded by the single 'Safe', which will be available to purchase on download from November 7 and physically the following day.
The Irish boyband's last LP, 2009's Where We Are, debuted at number two on the UK albums chart on its way to going double platinum.
Since making their chart debut in 1999, the four-piece - Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Egan - have notched up 24 UK top ten hits, 14 of which have reached number one.
