Take That have announced an "exciting" new project at the launch of their West End musical.

Howard Donald revealed that the band will be releasing a brand new 'best of' compilation, featuring brand new songs and new versions of classic hits.

"We’re working on a Greatest Hits," said Howard.

"We’re doing extra tracks, some great new songs which are gonna go on there, but we’re gonna do a Greatest Hits album with a bit of a difference.

"Rather than just piling on the songs, we’re gonna do new versions of stuff. It’s very exciting."

When asked if Robbie Williams or Jason Orange might be involved, he added: "No, I don’t think so.

"Next year, we’ll be doing a world tour. UK, Europe, South America, Australia, South East Asia, so we’re going everywhere. We’re gonna remind people of who we used to be!"
