Robbie Williams And Gary Barlow Duet On Upcoming Single Called "Shame"

If you don't believe the Robbie Williams-Take That reunion is inevitable yet, perhaps this tidbit will finally snap you out of denial: the Robster and Gary Barlow have recorded a single together called "Shame." It's set to be included on Williams' 39-song (!!) greatest hits collection In And Out Of Consciousness – The Greatest Hits 1990 -2010. That trash is due out October 12 (including here in the States, where it'll be issued via Capitol's Astralwerks imprint).

Here's a trailer for the collection:



My guess is this will be goodbye Robbie Williams, the solo artist. Hello Robbie Williams, the Take That 2.0 member.

The press release for the hits set notes that "Shame" will be the first time Gary and Robbie have written and recorded together since 1995. That said, both lent their vocals to the Helping Haiti charity cover of "Everybody Hurts" earlier this year.

    Single together: fine, sure. Talk of a permanent reunion, though, and I'll keep sitting over here with my fingers in my ears, humming to myself.

    Take That 2.0 is brilliant as a foursome and shouldn't mess with a good thing. Robbie should remain solo. He seems like a megalomaniac so I'm sure he can't deal with his rapidly declining popularity these days. Thus, the desire to rejoin TT. Ugh.
