Apparently, Mark Owen is taking a new direction for his solo career. Gordon insists it will "surprise" fans.
Really? It's not just that he's looked around, found out what sells and is going to try and pour himself into an uncomfortable modish mould, is it?
A source said: “Mark’s excited about his new sound, it has a modern edge. People might not even think it’s him."Ah, yes, "a source" - but don't worry, we know Gordon will have diligently worked behind the scenes to make sure this secret source was correct and not just made up a quote to fit the story.
You might wonder what value there is in a man whose main selling point is who he is making a record that people won't know it's him (he's working with Starsmith, by the way).
But then it turns out his main selling point isn't who he is, says "the source":
“His label are keen to get the stuff out – especially as Gary being on X Factor will shift the focus back on Take That.”Good god, that's grim: "Mark, one of the people you work with is going to be on television; we really need to rush out a song in which you sound like Ellie Goulding to take advantage of that."
Still, Gordon's excited, as he sniffs a hint of one of his beloved chart battles:
With Robbie Williams working on solo material, too, there could be a TT chart battle.So, that's a chart battle being predicted although at the moment, there's no release dates, not even a hint of anything near ready for release.
Both singers are expecting nippers so might not strike up a cash wager.What? Is that a barbed comment about the pair of them putting on weight? Or is it just as random as it sounds?
Maybe the winner could take ownership of a game of Hungry Hippos.
