Gary Barlow & Elton John to Release Duet as Single
Speaking to us ahead of the release of LP, Since I Saw You Last, the X Factor judge explained how his collaboration with the Rocket Man came about - revealing how they have already shot the video for the track.
When asked about Elton, Gazza stated: "I've been friends with Elton for quite a few years, probably 20 years actually, we've done stuff on stage together before but never on a record.
"I've been looking for an excuse to do this song for years and years and I came up with Face To Face at the end of last year."
He continued: "I sent it to him and within like an hour, he called me back and said, 'let's do it, let's go!' So we went into Abbey Road for three hours one Monday afternoon and not only did we record the song but we shot the video at the same time.
"What you see when you watch this video is actually what happened on the day and it was brilliant."
Seeing as they have already shot the promo for the track, when quizzed over whether Face To Face would act as the follow-up to current single Let Me Go, Barlow replied: "I'm hoping it's going to be the second single, yeah."
Let Me Go is out now, while Gary's first solo album in 14-years, Since I Saw You Last, follows on November 25.
