Ahead of their performance on this evening’s first episode of the newly relaunched TFI Friday, Take That have unveiled their new single ‘Hey Boy’ which will be available from October 16th and released through Polydor Records. The new track is an exciting addition to the 2015 Edition of their Number One hit album “III” out on November 20th.
‘Hey Boy’ ventures into new ground for Take That with chunky 80s synths and and a huge chorus that will be sure to get a similar reaction from fans of their upbeat Number One hit ‘These Days’. The track was produced by Greg Kurstin whose previous work includes production credits for Ellie Goulding, Katy Perry, Lana Del Rey and most recently Beck’s epic ‘Dreams’.
The band will be unveiling ‘Hey Boy’ in an exclusive performance on TFI’s series opener tonight (October 16th) on Channel 4 from 8pm.
Alongside the new single, Take That – III – 2015 Edition will include three new studio tracks together with the live DVD of their recent UK tour Take That Live 2015, giving fans a front row seat perspective to relive the experience.
Take That’s tour DVD’s are an event in themselves with their previous releases having broken every sales record going in the UK. Their latest DVD of their most recent UK Tour ‘III’, which ended earlier this week in Milan, was filmed at the O2 earlier this year and shows their spectacular live production in its full glory; a wonderful, colourful explosion with everything from dancing jellyfish, beautifully choreographed puppetry and a contemporary dance routine performed by Mark and Howard to a flying tandem sidecar that soars out over the crowd, a burning globe, pyros, fireworks and indoor rain.
‘III’ which went straight to Number One at the end of 2014 marked another poignant moment in the band’s legacy as a newly created three-piece. The album includes the band’s most recent hits including ‘Get Ready For It’ written for the blockbuster Kingsman and No.1 hit ‘These Days’.
Last month Take That also played their first ever Apple Music Festival show at the Roundhouse which follows on from shows earlier in the year for War Child, Wear The Rose and Car Fest.
Take That have had seven UK Number One albums, 12 UK Number One singles, sold over 45 million records, won six Ivor Novellos, eight BRITs and sold over seven and a half million concert tickets in their lifetime.
