After admitting on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show in January that Take That was still “a four-piece band” in his eyes — despite reuniting with Robbie Williams last year — Gary Barlow has apparently changed his tune.
According to The Sun, Williams might be sticking around beyond the band’s forthcoming sold-out jaunt of the UK and Europe. The lads are reportedly getting along great these days and have been penning new tunes. I guess Williams’ nasty 1995 departure is just a tiny blip on the Take That map at this point.
“We really want that and this is our dream come true,” Barlow recently said during a U.S. interview. “At the beginning we all said it was going to last for one album, but we’re starting to write again, so we don’t know now.”
Mark Owen added: “We are a team — at the moment Take That is five people, but it feels more than that. There’s a lot of people who have a relationship with us. At the beginning there was a fragility to the whole thing, but that has gone now.”
If the band’s latest studio album, Progress, was any indication of the English pop group’s long-lasting magic, here’s hoping Williams is indeed “Back for Good.”
