Acoustic guitar duo Turin Brakes have revealed an unlikely source of help with funding for their new record – pop stars Take That.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music, Olly Knights of Turin Brakes revealed that it looked unlikely that the pair would have been able to afford to make a new album after leaving record label EMI.

But Howard Donald, fan of the band and Take That member, asked Knights and acoustic guitar partner Gale Paridjanian, to write a song for his group.

The resulting track, Here, ended up as the closing song on The Circle – giving the boys access to royalties that helped fund the recording of their next record.

Knights said: "We were so amazed that they even knew who we were - we thought, well we've got to do this because if we don't it's such an opportunity wasted."

Turin Brakes are currently preparing for a UK tour in March that will see the band take their acoustic guitars to venues in cities including Manchester, Sheffield, Nottingham and London.
