Gary Barlow has released his first ever Christmas album, ‘The Dream Of Christmas’ is out today. Featuring brand new original songs and beautifully orchestrated Christmas classics, ‘The Dream Of Christmas’ is a glorious, sleigh-belled, snow-filled magical ride through the sound of Christmas and the perfect musical accompaniment to the festive season.
Gary will be performing his new single, ‘How Christmas Is Supposed To Be’, on the Jonathan Ross show this weekend – tune into ITV1 at 9:30pm on Saturday night.
Featuring an array of collaborations, ‘The Dream Of Christmas’ is brimming with festive cheer and Christmas spirit. Gary’s contemporary compositions, in which he sings of warm Christmas memories, sit perfectly alongside timeless classics well-known and loved by many.
The gorgeously festive ‘How Christmas is Supposed to Be’ is a sparkly, punchy, pop duet with Olivier and BAFTA-winning singer, actor, Sheridan Smith. Gary also collaborated with Welsh baritone, Aled Jones on ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’, a beautifully heart-warming melody that blends their vocals together and even sees Aled sing in his native Welsh. Gary enlists the prodigious talent of cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason on the spellbinding ‘The Colder It Feels’ and collaborates with vocal harmony trio, The Puppini Sisters to lend a modern, jazz feel to the festive classic, ‘Winter Wonderland’.
‘The Dream of Christmas’ is Gary’s sixth solo album and follows his acclaimed Number 1 album, ‘Music Played By Humans’, which rocketed to the top of the album charts upon its release in November last year, becoming his third Number 1 solo album and the fastest-selling album from a British artist in 2020.
Gary’s All The Hits Live Tour kicks off in Belfast tomorrow (27th November) and he will play 16 shows in 14 cities around the UK and Ireland. He’ll be performing all the hits from his incredible three-decade long career as well as songs from both his new album ‘The Dream of Christmas’ and his Number 1 album ‘Music Played By Humans’. Tickets are on sale now.
