Barry Gibb has signed a new record deal with Columbia Records and will release his first solo album since 1984's 'Now Voyager' on the label, called 'In The Now'.
Barry Gibb is to release his first solo album in 32 years.
The only surviving member of The Bee Gees - who co-founded the iconic seventies group with his brothers, Robin and Maurice - has signed a new record deal with Columbia Records and will release his second LP, 'In The Now', later this year.
The 'Night Fever' hitmaker is thrilled to be releasing a follow-up to his debut solo album 1984's 'Now Voyager' and sees it as a ''new chapter''.
Of the signing, the 69-year-old star said: ''This is a dream come true for me. It's a new chapter in my life. I always hoped one day that The Bee Gees would be with Columbia or indeed Sony so, it's a great joy for me to start again this way with such great people.''
In January 2003, Barry lost his dear brother Maurice, who died of a cardiac arrest at the age of 53.
Nine years later in May 2012, his sibling Robin tragically passed away after a long battle with cancer.
Barry, the eldest of the three, has vowed to ''never forget'' both of his brothers and will keep their memory alive with his music.
He said: ''I will never forget my brothers, they will always be a part of everything I do. Our dream came true.''
Barry wrote the songs on the record with his sons Stephen and Ashley.
News of the new record comes after Barry joined Coldplay on stage at Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, South West England, on Sunday (26.06.16).
Barry duetted with the 'Up & Up' hitmakers frontman Chris Martin performing acoustic renditions of The Bee Gees' songs 'To Love Somebody' and 'Stayin' Alive'.
