Take That are preparing to continue their successful comeback, with their new single Shine. It's the followup to smash comeback single Patience, and the second track to be taken from their multi-platinum selling album, Beautiful World.

, described as "Beatles-esqe with a hint of ELO", features Mark Owen on lead vocals.

But Take That's video for Shine had to be partially re-shot, because Gary Barlow (36) was looking too chubby, was unable to do up his tuxedo jacket, and struggling to keep with the other guys in the dance routines.

Producers chose instead to bring in a grand piano for Gary to sit behind, while the other three guys did the dance routine. The video recreates the atmosphere and style of a Busby Berkley musical (1930s/40s/50s Hollywood movie director and choreographer).

The classy video features stairs that reach to the sky, classic Kaleidoscopic Choreography, and a backdrop of women in outfits ranging from burlesque to fifties swimwear glamour.

Shine is officially released in the UK on February 26th (although the way the UK Singles Chart works now, it's already in the Top 40 thanks to digital downloads from the album).
