Gary Barlow releases ‘Incredible’ today, the second track taken from his upcoming solo album ‘Music Played By Humans’ (out 27th November). The song soundtracks the upcoming Argos “Book of Dreams” Christmas advert, launching this coming Sunday (1st November).
The 80-piece orchestra shine bright on this upbeat ode to love as the brass section complements the rhythmic bass alongside Gary’s unmistakable vocals. ‘Incredible’ beautifully nods to the orchestral and big band music which captured Gary’s imagination and led to ‘Music Played By Humans’, an album of original compositions.
Reflecting on the process of recording ‘Incredible’ and the album, Gary is thankful these special musicians were able to come together and create music: Looking back, little did I realise how poignant this album would be in a time now that orchestras can’t sit in a room together. We finished our last session 2 weeks before lockdown and when I listen to the album now, it brings back some great memories. We have some of the best musicians in the world in London…and they’re on my recordings – I’m so lucky.
Gary Barlow tours the UK and Ireland in 2021, kicking off in Liverpool on 2nd June – tickets available now from garybarlow.com
