Take That announce latest single
Friday 08 July 2011
Take That have announced their latest single 'When We Were Young'.
The ballad - the last track to be released from the group's 'Progressed' album - is the theme song to upcoming film 'The Three Musketeers', inspired by a private screening of the film the group had with its director Paul W. S. Anderson.
Singer Gary Barlow said: "The film is visually so rich and beautiful that our main challenge was to then match it musically. We've returned to guitars, real pianos and a conventional song structure to achieve this. We also thought that the Musketeers reminded us of ourselves."
The band - which also includes Mark Owen, Howard Donald, Jason Orange and Robbie Williams - are currently on their Progress Live 2011 tour of Europe, but Mark has said they have already started working on songs for another album.
He said: "We've done a few new tracks that over the last year we've been working on."
Whether any future releases will feature Robbie - who returned to the band in 2010, after originally quitting in 1995 - has not been confirmed however, as he wrote a blog post earlier this week saying he has "solo stuff still to do".
He wrote: "Is there a future with Take That? Well I want to do again. It's been too much fun to put it to one side and say never.
"But I have solo stuff still to do. When the boys want me back I'll be there."
