NEWLY REUNITED TAKE THAT bandmates Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow have released the video for Robbie’s single Shame, co-written by and featuring Barlow.

The song – which marks the first time that the two have collaborated since Williams left Take That in 1995 – will feature on Williams’ own greatest hits album, ‘In And Out of Consciousness’, to be released in October with the single slated for release the previous week.

The song is also the first time ever that the two men have recorded a straightforward duet together without the appearance of other Take That members.

The tune got its first radio play on BBC Radio 1 this morning – but not before the video was put on YouTube by Williams’ record label EMI.

The lyrics, perhaps unsurprisingly, deal with the pair’s often-fractured relationship, and include the various lines:

Well there’s three version of this story – there’s yours, and mine, and then the truth

Out of some sentimental gain I wanted you to feel my pain, but it came back ‘return to sender’

My tears could fill the Albert Hall, Is this the sound of sweet surrender?

I told you through the television and all that went away was the price we pay

I wrote a letter in my mind but the words were so unkind about a man I can’t remember

I don’t recall the reasons why, I must have meant them at the time

The video falls a little short of earlier reports that the video would follow a Brokeback Mountain-style theme but does show the two exchanging a series of (ahem) ‘meaningful’ glances and a shot of the two stripping to the waist before making to dive off a cliff together.
