Take That are celebrating their 30th anniversary, and since their formation back in the 90s, the varying line up of Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Robbie Williams have seen huge success with hits such as 'Relight My Fire', 'Back For Good', and more recently, 'These Days' and 'Giants'.
Current band member Gary Barlow has now revealed to his fans how Take That's upcoming 30th anniversary album is coming along, and fans are VERY happy about the news.
Taking to Twitter, Gary said, 'Our Greatest hits album is now finished and mastered. Every track has had a face lift. Some have been completely re recorded. 3 brand new songs. There’s guests and lots of interesting links between songs. What a journey #TT30'.
With the news of three brand news songs, along with all the greatest hits remastered, fans have been tweeting their excitement. One said, 'Soooooo exciting!!! We need to hear a snippet please!!! 😜 xxx', with another saying, 'Proud of you all #TT30 and still going strong.. 😘', continuing, 'Can't wait to hear it, looking like it won't be long either.. 👌'.
Earlier this year, Gary delighted fans by confirming that the band would be touring as well as releasing a film. Back in March, TV presenter Alex Jones asked the trio on The One Show about the possibility of a 'Greatest Hits' compilation and tour, and Gary confirmed the news that fans have been hoping for.
"It is a yes to both," the 47-year-old singer confirmed, "We're planning a world tour next year."
In the same week, Gary confirmed that the band would be working on their film which is based on their musical The Band. Gary told Lorraine, "Yes, it's happening. The script is being written by Tim Firth [who did the musical] and it will be shooting next year.
"Think they're getting Brad Pitt to play me," he joked.
Now take a look at the biggest films from 2017 according to Empire magazine:
20. The Lost City Of Z
2013's **The Immigrant is sadly still waiting for a UK release, so praise be to the cinematic gods that James Gray's The Lost City Of Z **arrived without delay. Based on the true-life tale of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), this dense but always gripping biopic is part political drama, part family drama and part adventure. On discovering the remnants of an indigenous society, Fawcett spent his life trying to prove his Amazonian finds until his unexplained disappearance in 1925. Containing one of the most beautiful scenes of the year, this undseen gem deserves, nay, demands your attention.
Earlier this year the current members Mark Owen told us, “It’s 30 years this year! We’re making a record, we’re always celebrating, we’ve been celebrating for 30 years!”
Gary Barlow then continued, “We have a Greatest Hits coming out, we have a few new songs and next year we’re doing a Greatest Hits tour.”
