LONDON, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- Robbie Williams says he is quitting the reconstituted British band Take That again after taking part in their reunion tour earlier this year.

Williams reportedly banked about $16 million on the European tour and plans to return to his solo career with a new record label and an album in the works, Britain's Daily Mail said Saturday.

The newspaper said it remains to be seen if Williams' most-recent stint with Take That would revitalize the 37-year-old singer's solo career. His two solo albums for EMI were panned by some critics and never generated the sales Take That enjoyed in the 1990s.

Williams is making a fresh start with Universal Music and will release a new album next year. The Telegraph said there are rumors the new project will be produced by Take That band mate Gary Barlow.
