British singer/songwriter Gary Barlow is preparing to return to the charts without his Take That bandmates for his first solo album in 14 years.

The Relight My Fire hitmaker revealed on on Tuesday (17Sep13) that he has been working on the follow up to 1999's Twelve Months, Eleven Days and he can't wait to share the new music with fans.

He writes, "After 14 long years I'm proud to announce my new solo album out on November 25th! I'm excited for u (sic) to hear it!"

Barlow hasn't been completely absent from the pop charts - he scored a number one single last year (12) with Sing, which was recorded in celebration of Queen Elizabeth Ii's Diamond Jubilee.

He isn't the only Take That star gearing up for another chart assault - Robbie Williams will also release his new duets album, Swings Both Ways, in November (13).
