The singer/songwriter/X Factor judge tweeted the news yesterday...
After 14 long years I'm proud to announce my new solo album out on November 25th! I'm excited for u to hear it! More info to follow #gbsolo— Gary Barlow (@GaryBarlow) September 17, 2013
The release of his new album - the name of which is still yet to be revealed - will be on the 25 November, which surely makes a live X Factor performance absolutely imperative, no?
Although we have had a bit of solo action from Gary since Take That made their almighty return in 2006. He produced the hugely successful and inspirational Sing for the Queen's Jubilee Concert last year.
We can't wait to hear what Gary has come up with for his new album, it's got to be good, right? Maybe something like this beauty?
And this classic? Hold on, we don't actually remember this one...
