"Love Ain't Here Anymore" is a song by English boy band Take That. Released on 17 May 1994,[citation needed] it was the sixth and final single taken from the band's second studio album, Everything Changes (1993). It peaked at number three in the UK Singles Chart, ending their string of consecutive number-one singles. It failed to overtake Wet Wet Wet's cover of "Love Is All Around" at number one, and American R&B group, All-4-One, who reached number two with "I Swear". The song was re-recorded for release in the United States and included on their first Greatest Hits compilation in 1996. A Spanish version of the song, "No Si Aqui No Hay Amor", was recorded and entered the Spanish charts at number two. It appears as a B-side to the single, "Sure" and to the United States single of Back for Good. The song has received a Silver sales status certification for sales of over 200,000 copies in the UK. A new, remixed version of the song appears as a track on the group's 2018 compilation album Odyssey, featuring vocals from US singing group Boyz II Men.
