As Take That are recording a new album without Robbie and Jason, and in the wake of that inconvenient tax avoidance business, they really need to come back with a bang. Gary’s recent output suggests his days of writing hits like Back For Good, Never Forget and Rule The World are long behind him, so maybe it’s time to break tradition and take an outside song. By which I mean cover Shut Up and Dance, the excellent new single by American band Walk The Moon. It already sounds like the best single Mark Owen never released, so it makes perfect sense. I’ll give you this one for free guys, but I will expect a percentage when you take me on as your A&R consultant after it becomes the biggest selling single of 2015.
