Take That fans, assemble: the band have revealed their first new single in five years, Windows, and announced a ninth album and a huge UK stadium tour next year.


The trio – comprising Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald – previewed the song on BBC Radio 2 on Friday 22nd September.

“New music, it is exciting,” Barlow said. “We’ve been together for 33 years now so it’s like, ‘What’s next? How do we sound in 2023?’ That’s the exciting bit.

“There’s nothing more we love than going into a studio and going, ‘Who are we now? How does our music sound when it comes out?’ And it feels fresh and it feels exciting, and it feels like we’re looking upwards. I think we’re at a nice time of life.”

He added: “It’s hopeful and there’s a lot of light I think in this music. We’re very excited for our audience to hear it – always.”
