Aliens

Album: Progressed (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Robbie Williams has a well-publicized interest in UFOs, so many Take That fans assumed that he is behind this song about extra-terrestrials. However it turns out the tune was a joint effort between Gary Barlow and Mark Owen. Said Barlow on his official website: "This started as a backing track, went off to Mark's house for the weekend and came back with this sing along anthem on top of it!"
  • The song features Take That's Howard Donald on lead vocals.
