Take That have announced the release of ‘Out Of Our Heads’ for 12 October, the first brand new offering from their forthcoming album Odyssey, out 23rd November, via Polydor. The single is the first of three new tracks to appear on the album, which will also include ‘reimagined’ versions of their celebrated back catalogue.
‘Out Of Our Heads’ is described as “a high-octane call to the dancefloor, which transports the listener back to 1930’s swing-era America, whilst retaining a thoroughly current feel through its state of the art production.” You can hear the track below.
In addition, the band have also now revealed the tracklist for Odyssey and you can see that in full below. Odyssey forms part of the band’s epic 30th anniversary celebrations, which will see Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald embark on a Greatest Hits Tour of the UK.
2019 marks 30 years since 5 likely lads met in Manchester, forming Take That. Odyssey is a chronicling of their journey from humble beginnings to becoming one of the biggest boy bands of all time, before splitting up and then making a remarkable comeback, becoming even more successful in their second incarnation. “The story is, if you think about it, quite mad” says Howard Donald. To use Owen’s words: “To tell the tale of the band, the history of what happened to us. If you only ever own one of them, this should be the definitive Take That record.”
The 2CD/LP is a mix of their biggest hits from the last 3 decades, interwoven with personal soundbites from across the years, which help to piece together this richest of musical tapestries. It will also include ‘reimagined’ versions of their classics, giving fans the chance to hear their favourites in a new light, “but without spoiling what people loved about them in the first place” says Barlow.
Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen are Take That in 2018 and continue the legacy of one of the most successful bands in British chart history. Formed as a five piece in 1989, they enjoyed immediate success with their first two albums charting at No.2 & No.1 respectively. Third album Nobody Else moved over six million copies and topped the charts in 11 countries.
The departure of band member Robbie Williams prompted a break up in 1996 and nine years in the wilderness before the other four members reunited for 2005’s The Ultimate Tour. This sparked one of the greatest comebacks in British music history with Take That going on to release three No.1 albums in just four years. Williams’ return for 2011’s Progress saw them break the record for the fastest selling album of the 21st century and fastest selling tour of all time in the UK. Williams’ second departure, along with that of Jason Orange left the remaining three members to release III and 2017’s Wonderland, which were certified platinum and gold respectively.
