Last month, Gary announced details of his new solo album, which is out on 27 November. The first single, Elita, features Michael Buble and Sebastian Yatra.

Speaking of the song, he said: "Originally it was just the two of us but then Michael said he knew this amazing talent that would be perfect for the song.

"Within an hour we were all on the phone and when Sebastian sent the track back, we were just thrilled. He has this amazing charisma - it just sounded so authentic."

Music Played By Humans is Gary's 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.

Ticket for Gary Barlow's tour are on sale Friday 9 October at 9.30am from ticketmaster.co.uk and gigsandtours.com.
