TAKE THAT This Life | Let the old out and the new in

We have with us the new album by the now trio, Take That. ‘This Life‘ is a song to friendship, to reunion, to the love of three friends who once again feel the energy of doing what they love most in this world, music.

Windows | Emotion of the Week

Take That returned to music in 2023 with a wonderful track called ‘Windows‘. As they said: “It was the beginning of everything“; When they wrote it, it sounded beautiful, fresh and exciting, with harmonies that intertwine perfectly, which encouraged them to go ahead with the album.

Windows is about coming out of the darkness into the light.

Take That sounds different, more acoustic, more American and above all with a lot of optimism. They have certainly opened the windows to a bright future.

Writing and releasing this album has been such a beautiful, emotional journey and we couldn’t be happier and prouder to finally have it out in the world. We hope you love it.

This Life | Behind Take That’s new album

This Life is above all things an album full of light and good vibes.

Despite being the band’s ninth album it feels different. Take That are now 3, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald. Perhaps because they are smaller in number, they have changed their method of composing, more united, and singing, much more harmonious.

The album has 13 songs recorded mainly in Georgia (USA). The scent of south and warmth permeates This Life:

  1. Keep Your Head Up
  2. Windows
  3. This Life
  4. Brand New Sun
  5. March of the Hopeful
  6. Days I Hate Myself
  7. The Champion
  8. We Got All Day
  9. Mind Full of Madness
  10. Time and Time Again
  11. One More Word
  12. Where We Are

From songs about getting older like ‘The champion‘, to the twists and turns of life like ‘This Life‘, written by Gary Barlow after his son graduated, to giving your daughter away at her wedding, sung by Howard on ‘One more word‘, the whole album sounds sophisticated and mature. Which is hardly surprising considering that all the members of Take That are well into their 50s 😉

Take That 'Windows' Lyrics

I’ve been through a year of madness
Replaced my hope with sadness
Found waking up the hardest
And every day, it felt the longest
All blessings were unwanted
Constantly haunted

Then you opened up
Opened up my windows
Yeah, you opened up
Opened up my windows
Like fire in the sky
You know what it’s like
Was so glad to feel the sunlight in my eyes

I’ve been through a year of hurting (badly)
Bad guesses and wrong turnings (sadly)
The memory still burning (inside)
And the lights are all at red
Should I leave or stay in bed?
Didn’t practice what I preached
So I just shouted, “help me, help me”

Then you opened up
Opened up my windows
Yeah, you opened up
Opened up my windows
Like fire in the sky
You know what it’s like
Was so glad to feel the sunlight in my eyes

Ready now to start this climb
See the beacon way up high
If I fall or lose my way
Please come and get me, get me
Ooh-ooh
Ah-ah

You opened up
Opened up my windows
Yeah, you opened up
Opened up my windows
Then you opened upp
Opened up my windows
Yeah, you opened up
Opened up my windows
Like fire in the sky
You know what it’s like
Was so glad to feel the sunlight in my eyes

You opened up
Opened up my windows
Yeah, you opened up
Opened up my windows

Take That 'Windows' Lyrics in Spanish

He pasado un año de locura
Sustituido mi esperanza por tristeza
Encontré el despertar de lo más difícil
Y cada día, se sentía el más largo
Todas las bendiciones no eran deseadas
Constantemente atormentado

Entonces tú abriste
Abriste mis ventanas
Sí, tú abriste
Abriste mis ventanas
Como fuego en el cielo
Ya sabes lo que se siente
Estaba tan contento de sentir la luz del sol en mis ojos

He pasado por un año de dolor (mal)
Malas suposiciones y giros equivocados (tristemente)
La memoria sigue ardiendo (dentro)
Y las luces están todas en rojo
¿Debería irme o quedarme en la cama?
No practiqué lo que predicaba
Así que sólo grité, “ayúdame, ayúdame”

Entonces tú abriste
Abriste mis ventanas
Sí, tú abriste
Abriste mis ventanas
Como fuego en el cielo
Ya sabes lo que se siente
Estaba tan contento de sentir la luz del sol en mis ojos

Listo ahora para empezar esta subida
Veo el faro en lo alto
Si me caigo o pierdo el camino
Por favor, ven y cógeme, cógeme
Ooh-ooh
Ah-ah

Tú abriste
Abriste mis ventanas
Sí, tú abriste
Abriste mis ventanas
Entonces tu abriste
Abriste mis ventanas
Sí, abriste
Abriste mis ventanas
Como fuego en el cielo
Ya sabes lo que se siente
Estaba tan contento de sentir la luz del sol en mis ojos

Tú abriste
Abriste mis ventanas
Sí, tú abriste
Abriste mis ventanas
