Gary Barlow Spills Details On Take That's Upcoming Album

Lots of pop is around the corner! The following is info Gary Barlow wrote in a fan newsletter (found via the Take That Appreciation Pages).

It seems like we'll be getting a single and/or album from the That by Christmas.
Although not looking forward to the weather back home I can't wait to finish the new record and get it out for you all to hear!!

We've been joined again by the fabulous John Shanks. So glad he's sharing his magic touch with us one more time.

I must say I've had the most fun making Take That's 5th album. After all these years it really feels, for the first time, like we're a real band ! Fantastic! And from next month the boys and I will be back out around Europe doing TV's and radios so look out for us.
John Shanks produced their last album, Beautiful World—including the singles "Patience," "Shine" and "I'd Wait For Life"—as well as "Rule The World" from the Stardust soundtrack.

Gary also notes that the soundtrack for Britannia High—a knockoff of High School Musical that Barlow says "all the great U.K. songwriters were part of"—is finished.

Hey, wonder how Robbie Williams is doing these days?

    ooo i'm practically squealing like a twice stuffed pig with excitement over new the that and britannia high!

    Re Robbie: I sort of grew unhappy with him over his last two albums though he remains one of my fave singers ever. An mp3 player malfunction made me listen to Rudebox a couple of times on hols and I am re-evaluating those albums. He is all a clean shaven haven in soccer aid which airs on sunday in UK. I'd still do gary over him these days tho!

    I'm really hoping this'll be a great album--and we can't hear the single soon enough as far as I'm concerned.

    Still waiting to have a Jason/Howard sandwich. I'm sure the new that album will be ace.

    Paul, I'm morbidly curious about Britannia High. Hopefully it's not entirely derivative of HSM, or if it is, hopefully the music is good.

    PG, agreed!

    Adem, maybe he'll dress in a Santa suit and give you a light ramming while you're sleeping?

    Jump! Hold the mayo...
