Wil­liams to re­join Take That for Christ­mas song?

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Rob­bie Wil­liams could be set to re­join Take That for a Christ­mas song. Front­man Gary Bar­low - who is cur­rently joined by Mark Owen and Howard Don­ald in the group re­cently shared a pic­ture in the stu­dio on In­sta­gram teas­ing new mu­sic is on the way, and it's re­port­edly due to be re­leased later this year around the festive sea­son. The 'Gi­ants' hit­mak­ers have been eye­ing get­ting the orig­i­nal five mem­bers of the group back for some shows or even an al­bum for what seems like years. And, though they won't be mark­ing their 25th an­niver­sary, Mark has hinted there is a glim­mer of hope that part-timer Rob­bie, 43, and Ja­son Orange, 47 - who quit in 2014 - may come "on board" for some­thing. He told the Daily Star news­pa­per: "I think we would still love to do some­thing spe­cial with all of us. "But be­cause it feels to us like 25 years has gone we might do some­thing at the end of this year." Gary added: "We are look­ing to do some­thing, hope­fully maybe get Rob­bie on board, and Ja­son." The band are work­ing on a boxset due out in De­cem­ber, where the new mu­sic would likely be fea­tured among all of their hits, and have teamed up with their usual pro­ducer Stu­art Price for the re­lease. Gary said: "Mak­ing a record with Stu­art is never pre­dictable but it's very com­fort­able. "He un­der­stands the band. "So many of the peo­ple that work with us have been with us for a long time. "We re­ally hold on to peo­ple. They try get­ting away but we don't let them." The 46-year-old hunk said ear­lier this year that he thinks Rob­bie and Ja­son could re­turn in 2022 for a 'great­est hits' tour and pos­si­bly a record. The 'Back For Good' stars have de­cided not to mark their 25th an­niver­sary with a big re­union. At the time, Gary said: "I don't think any­thing we do with Rob is go­ing to re­late to like a big 25-year project. "In fact, I'll tell you this for the first time, we're look­ing at 30 years. "We're plan­ning some­thing to do for the 30-year all to­gether. "We're look­ing that far ahead, some­thing big, maybe a new record, maybe a great­est hits with a big tour."
