Gary Barlow returns in 2020 with ‘Music Played By Humans’, his first solo album in seven years since 2013’s double-platinum ‘Since I Saw You Last.’ The album is an ode to the sounds of Gary’s childhood, the orchestral and big band music which captured his imagination and eventually led to this album of original compositions. Recorded with a full 80-piece orchestra, the album blends a multitude of eclectic sounds and styles to deliver one of the most exciting albums of the year.
The album leads with the Latin inspired single ‘Elita’ featuring Michael Bublé and Colombian star Sebastián Yatra and also features collaborations with stars from around the world including James Corden, Barry Manilow, Chilly Gonzales, Alisha Dixon, Beverley Knight, Ibrahim Maalouf and Avishai Cohen.
