Mark Owen has released his first solo single in almost a decade from his upcoming album, 'Land of Dreams'.

The Take That star, 50, is back with a brand new tune in the undeniably catchy 'You Only Want Me', which marks his first new music since his 2013 LP 'The Art of Doing Nothing'.

The full record is set to follow on September 23.

In support of the album, the Mancunian is set to embark on a mini UK tour in October, and has a number of festival appearances lined up this summer, including The Isle of Wight Festival and Latitude.

The UK tour kicks off on October 16 at Bristol's O2 Academy, before heading to Manchester and Glasgow, and wrapping at London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on October 20.

A fan-presale for the shows will take place from 9am on May 25 by pre-ordering 'Land Of Dreams'.

Take That have been on a break from the 'Greatest Day' hitmakers since 2019 as they work on their own projects.

During Take That's break, Gary Barlow has dropped two albums, and Howard Donald has kept on working as a DJ, while Mark has been relatively quiet.

In November last year, Gary suggested the 'Shine' band are hoping to reunite next year as he looks to "get back to [his] day job".

He explained "It's been a while since 2019. I'm ready to get back to my day job now. That's my thing - being in the group.

"We'll have a nice planning year in 2022. I don't think we'll release anything or tour but the following year, 2023, will be a big year for Take That."

Meanwhile, the trio reunited at Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday (18.05.22) for a photocall to promote their upcoming film, 'Greatest Days', based on their hit musical 'The Band'.
