Los Angeles: British pop group Take That has announced its third album 'III', which will be out on December 1, this year.
This will be the first album of the band without singer Jason Orange, who announced last month his separation from the group, reported BBC.
The remaining trio, comprising, Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen started work on new material earlier this year without Orange but said they had his 'blessing' to make the record.
The group also revealed that the first single off the new record will be called 'These Days' and it will get its first radio play on Friday before being released in November. Gary Barlow shared an image promoting their new material on Twitter and wrote, "Nice hey? TTIII. Thanks to our brilliant team who've turned this all around in record time! Phew! ttIII."
Members of that team include ELO frontman Jeff Lynne, who along with Take That, has also produced stars including Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson and Tom Petty.
These Days is described as an 'out-and-out feelgood pop' song and also gives 'a nod to the sound that defined their early years'.
The original band formed in 1990, split up in 1996 and four of the five members reformed for a successful comeback in 2005. The fifth founder member, Robbie Williams, rejoined briefly in 2010.
