New music: Gary Barlow “Let Me Go”

Gary Barlow in his new music video “Let Me Go”

Gary Barlow, X Factor judge and Take That frontman, has a new album coming out – “Since I Saw You Last” – available in the US December 3rd.

Barlow is looking pretty woofy in the first single/music video, “Let Me Go.”

I’ve never really understood why Barlow, Take That or his band mate Robbie Williams didn’t take off in the US, considering they’ve been uber-successful in the UK.

ABBA star Agnetha Faltskog makes surprise appearance with Gary Barlow

Via Contact Music: ABBA star Agnetha Faltskog stunned fans by hitting the stage for a surprise performance at a London charity concert, marking her first high-profile gig in 25 years.

The Swedish singer, who has reportedly not performed in front of an audience for more than two decades, was the surprise guest at Gary Barlow’s Children In Need Rocks concert, which was held at the city’s Eventim Apollo venue.

Faltskog performed her duet with Barlow, “I Should’ve Followed You Home”, to raise cash for the BBC’s annual Children In Need charity event, which supports underprivileged kids around the world.
