Take That’s Mark Owen has officially announced that he has signed a new solo record deal with BMG – following the recent release of his new single ‘You Only Want Me’ and the announcement of his first solo album for nearly a decade, ‘Land Of Dreams’.

In fact, if you were paying very close attention you had probably already worked out that that deal had been done – after all, BMG is listed as the label on the new track on the streaming services. But now the deal has been written about in both a press release and the CMU Daily. And that’s what makes the contract binding, right?

“I am super excited to sign with BMG, they are a great team full of inspiration and ambition and I can’t wait for the world to hear my new record”, says Owen.

Alistair Norbury, BMG President Repertoire & Marketing UK, adds: “We are delighted to welcome one of Britain’s best-loved artists to BMG, both as a songwriter and recording artist. With a 30 year career behind him, Mark has a unique ability to connect with music fans of every generation. It’s a pleasure to work with him”.

Yeah, that’s right, Mark Owen has a 30 year career behind him. You’re old, what of it?

‘Land Of Dreams’ is set for release on 23 Sep, and Owen will be heading out on a short UK tour in October. Here are the dates:

16 Oct: Bristol, Academy 1

7 Oct: Manchester, Ritz

18 Oct: Glasgow, Fruitmarket

20 Oct: London, Shepherd’s Bush Empire
