Gary Barlow working on Take That album
Gary Barlow is reportedly concentrating solely on writing new material for Take That's next studio album.
The singer recently renewed his publishing deal with Sony/ATV, but is putting on hold writing for other artists to work on tracks for the 'Greatest Day' band.
"He's got to focus on the Take That record with the rest of the guys and they're doing it now, but he's not a man who sits around," Sony/ATV UK managing director Rak Sanghvi told Music Week. "He's got his own label imprint through Universal. He's a really driven and prolific songwriter and artist and I'm sure the second the Take That record is in the bag he'll be off doing other projects.”
Barlow has recently written material for artists including John Barrowman, Dame Shirley Bassey, Alesha Dixon, Katherine Jenkins, N-Dubz and Peter Kay, while also launching new singer Camilla Kerslake through his own Future label.
Take That are expected to release their next studio album later this year and tour again in 2011. The group have notched up nearly 4.8 million combined sales of their past two albums 'Beautiful World' and 'The Circus'.
