Nobody Else is the third studio album by British boy band Take That. It was released on 8 May 1995 in the UK, Europe and Asia and on 15 August 1995 in North America. It would become Take That's last studio album to be recorded before they disbanded in 1996.

The album includes the singles "Sure", "Back for Good" (which remains the group's most successful song to date) and "Never Forget".

The album sold six million copies Worldwide.[2]

Background[edit]

Nobody Else was released on 8 May 1995. It would become Take That's last studio album to be recorded before they disbanded in 1996. In the UK the album debuted at number one, selling 163,399 in its first week.[3] Nobody Else also became the last album to feature Robbie Williams until his return to the band in 2010 for Progress. The album spawned three UK number one singles: "Sure", "Back for Good", which went to number one in over 31 countries worldwide, and "Never Forget". "Every Guy" was also issued as a promotional single, and "Sunday to Saturday" was issued as a single in Japan instead of "Never Forget" where it reached number 9.[4]

The single release of "Never Forget" in July 1995 marked the departure of Robbie Williams, who started a solo career the following year. The album reached number one in the UK, German, Dutch, Irish, Finnish, Belgian, Austrian, Italian and Swiss charts, and was also released in America by Arista Records on 15 August 1995, albeit with a different track listing, switching out four album tracks for three singles from Everything Changes: "Pray", "Babe" and "Love Ain't Here Anymore".[5] For the album's American release, its cover was replaced by a picture of the group which excluded Williams.[6]

In support of the album, the band went on the Nobody Else Tour, playing 31 dates across countries such as the UK, Australia, Thailand, Singapore and Japan.[7] Footage from the concert was released on video, entitled Nobody Else: The Movie.[8] The album has been certified 2× Platinum in the UK. The track "All That Matters to Me" appears exclusively on the Japanese edition of the album.[9]
