Gary Barlow shares ‘How Christmas Is Supposed To Be’ from festive album


Gary Barlow’s first ever festive album, The Dream Of Christmas is out now, featuring the beautiful track ‘How Christmas Is Supposed To Be’.

The album also features brand new original songs and beautifully orchestrated Christmas classics. The Dream Of Christmas is a glorious, sleigh-belled, snow-filled magical ride through the sound of Christmas and the perfect musical accompaniment to the festive season.

Featuring an array of collaborations, the album is brimming with festive cheer and Christmas spirit. Gary’s contemporary compositions, in which he sings of warm Christmas memories, sit perfectly alongside timeless classics well-known and loved by many. The gorgeously festive ‘How Christmas is Supposed to Be’ is a sparkly, punchy, pop duet with Olivier and BAFTA-winning singer and actor, Sheridan Smith.

Gary also collaborated with Welsh baritone, Aled Jones on A Child’s Christmas in Wales’, a beautifully heart-warming melody that blends their vocals together and even sees Aled sing in his native Welsh.

The British pop icon enlists the prodigious talent of cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason on the spellbinding ‘The Colder It Feels’ and collaborates with vocal harmony trio, The Puppini Sisters to lend a modern, jazz feel to the festive classic, Winter Wonderland’.

The Dream of Christmas is Gary’s sixth solo album and follows his acclaimed #1 album, Music Played By Humans, which rocketed to the top of the album charts upon its release in November last year, becoming his third #1 solo album and the fastest-selling album from a British artist in 2020.

Gary’s All The Hits Live Tour kicked off in Belfast last week, with the Take That star playing 16 shows in 14 cities around the UK and Ireland. He’ll be performing all the hits from his incredible three-decade long career.
