Never Forget – The Ultimate Collection is the fifth album by boyband Take That, released in 2005, nearly ten years after their initial split. It has sold over 2.2 million copies in the UK since release.[1]

Release[edit]

The album was released on 14 November 2005. The album contains 16 of the band's 18 singles, excluding their first single, "Do What U Like", and the internationally released "Sunday to Saturday", as well as three bonus recordings. One of the bonus recordings, "Today I've Lost You", was recorded especially for the album after it was originally scrapped in 1995. "Relight My Fire" was remixed, and was due to be issued as a single to promote the release of the album. However, the single was withdrawn just two days before its initial release date. The album sold 90,000 copies in its first week, peaking on the UK Albums Charts at #2. The album has been certified as 7× Platinum in the UK. The album since its release in November 2005 has spent 199 weeks in the UK Top 100 Albums chart (3 years and ten months).[2] All editions of the album feature the same track listing.
