Gary Barlow will release his first solo studio album in seven years this November

Gary also confirmed when the upcoming Take That movie Greatest Days will start filming.

Gary Barlow has announced that his new solo album will be released later in 2020.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, the Take That star's first album on his own in seven years will be out this November and will be an orchestral collection.

"I've got a solo album, first one in seven years coming near Christmas, November-ish," Gary told Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid. "It's very positive and it's with a 60-piece orchestra so get ready."

Gary Barlow's last solo album Since I Saw You Last came out in December 2013. It was held off the top spot by One Direction in a busy Christmas season, peaking at Number 2 on the Official Albums Chart, but spent 13 weeks in the Top 10 and has notched up 722,000 chart sales.

Gary's not just working on solo material - he shared more information about the upcoming movie Greatest Days that is in the works based on Take That's music.

"We've got a film coming out next year featuring all our music that I think they start filming in January," Gary confirmed.

Take That have scored 12 UK Number 1 singles and 8 chart-topping albums during their career; the only acts to score Number 1 songs than them are Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Cliff Richard, Westlife and Madonna.
