This album follows their 2017 release, “Wonderland,” and marks their comeback to the music scene after a hiatus of over five years. Recently, the band unveiled their latest single, “Windows,” serving as a captivating teaser for what lies ahead. In this article, we will delve into the details of their upcoming album, the inspiration behind “Windows,” and the thrilling tour that is set to accompany this musical journey.
We’re also extremely excited to announce that we are going on a tour of the UK & Ireland in 2024! 💙
“Windows,” Take That’s latest single, is a beautiful composition that narrates the story of emerging from darkness into the light. The familiar falsetto that welcomes the listener at the song’s opening notes signals a new era for one of Britain’s most celebrated groups. Take That’s creative energy and their determination to continue challenging and surprising their audience shine through in this track.
In a world dominated by screens and digital music-making, the recording of our brand-new album, “This Life,” was a departure from the norm. No high-tech gadgets, no complex machinery; just a big desk, acoustic guitars, and our three voices blending into one lead vocal. We hope you can hear that authenticity in the first single from the album, “Windows,” which is out now.
The musicality of “Windows” provides listeners with a sneak peek of what to expect from “This Life.” This will be Take That’s ninth studio album, promising a captivating blend of fascinating melodies, soaring choruses, and sophisticated harmonies that seamlessly blend the voices of the trio. Fans can mark their calendars for the album’s release on November 24th.
“Coming together in the studio for this song was a wonderful experience. It feels like spreading your wings, letting go of the old to venture into the new,” commented the group. “We are very proud of the new album; there’s a sense of unity. We’re excited about this new chapter!”
The “Life On” tour will see Take That perform in 29 dates across 15 cities in Ireland and the UK. Adding to the excitement, the group will be joined by a very special guest, Olly Murs.
Take That is renowned for their spectacular live productions and holds the record for the most performances at London’s O2 Arena with an astonishing 34 concerts. Their 2011 “Progress” tour set box-office records, selling over a million tickets in under 24 hours and ranking third in Billboard’s annual “Top 25 Tours.” In 2019, the group celebrated their 30th anniversary with the “Odyssey” tour, consisting of 38 dates, including 29 arenas and 9 stadiums, with a total of over 650,000 tickets sold.
During the writing and recording process, the group fine-tuned their new sound in some of the world’s most famous recording studios, including New York’s Electric Studios and the historic RCA Studio A in Nashville. These studios have been graced by legendary artists such as David Bowie, Dolly Parton, The Beach Boys, Adele, Taylor Swift, Maggie Rogers, and many more.
2023 has already proven to be a remarkable year for the group, with a series of outstanding performances. They performed an intimate show at KOKO in support of War Child, played to a sold-out crowd at the British Summer Time in Hyde Park, and headlined the King’s Coronation Concert, watched by over 12 million people. This summer also saw the release of the film adaptation of their record-breaking musical, “The Band,” titled “Greatest Days,” which was released in June.
