One of Canada’s most respected pop stars has photographed one of the UK’s biggest bands for the December cover of Q magazine. And, no—we’re not referring to Justin Bieber and the Spice Girls. Rather, Bryan Adams—who over the past two decades has built up a respectable second career as celebrity photographer—snapped glossy pics of Take That for the publication. Peek at the mag’s cover and the tracklist for the That’s upcoming album Progress after the jump!
Paul Rees, Q‘s editor-in-chief, said of the lads, “Even before Robbie [Williams] returned they were arguably the biggest band in Britain. On those factors alone they’d be a Q cover band. The return of Robbie has only magnified that.”
Take That on Q (2010) and Smash Hits (1995).
This marks the first time all five original members of the Manchester act have been featured on the cover of a magazine since 1995.
Below is the tracklist for Take That’s upcoming sixth album Progress, which is due out in the UK on November 22. And don’t think we didn’t notice they have a song called “What Do You Want From Me?” (Holy Adam Lambert—what is it with artists doubling up on track titles this year?)
1. The Flood
5. Pretty Things
6. Happy Now
7. Underground Machine
8. What Do You Want From Me?
10. Eight Letters
