Gary Barlow commented: “We love working with Matthew and have become great friends with him over the years. He is an amazing director and Kingsman: The Secret Service is without doubt one of his best films. After seeing a very early cut we knew exactly the song we wanted to make and ‘Get Ready For It’ is the result. We’re really proud of it.’
Ian Morton, Vice President of International Promotions at Twentieth Century Fox added: “We’re delighted to have such an iconic British group providing the official song for Kingsman: The Secret Service. When considering a band that embodies the essence of a Kingsman, we looked no further than Take That.”
