  • I DO, THEY SPEND THEIR LIVES IN STUDIO, DID THE SAME.

  • WE ALL GOT A LOT OF WORK DONE.

  • NOW WE'RE BACK IN LOCKDOWN.

  • IT IS THE TOTAL OPPOSITE.

  • WE'RE ALL SICK OF IT.

  • WE ALL WANT TO BREAK THE RULES BUT WE CAN'T.

  • WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH AND WE ARE COMING OUT OF LOCKDOWN TOMORROW

  • AND WE'RE ALL GOING TO GO CRAZY.

  • >> WELL, THAT IS CERTAINLY LOVELY FOR ALL OF US TO HEAR.

  • >> LET'S TALK ABOUT YOUR BRILLIANT ALBUM, MUSIC-- THE

  • RESPONSE THIS WEEK HAS BEEN UNBELIEVABLE.

  • WHAT ARE THE STANDOUTS, IS THAT YOU RECORDED THIS IN A LIVE ROOM

  • WITH AN 80 PIECE ORCHESTRA LIKE YOU REALLY WANTED TO DO IT WITH

  • A FULL ORCHESTRA.

  • WHAT WAS IT LIKE HEARING YOUR SONGS PLAYED AT SUCH SCALE?

  • >> YOU KNOW WHAT, I KNOW BECAUSE FOR ANYONE WHO HAS WALKED-- WITH

  • WATCHED AN ORCHESTRA, NEVER MIND STARTING IN THE MIDDLE OF IT, IT

  • IS TRULY THRILLING.

  • IT IS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.

  • WHAT I ALWAYS TRY TO DO WITH RECORDS IS WHAT IS UNSPIRING ME.

  • AND THE FACT THAT YOU ARE YOU IF I TOMORROW I AM-- I WILL HAVE 80

  • PEOPLE PLAY MY MUSIC TRK IS JUST THE MOST UNBELIEVABLE THING.

  • I DO REMEMBER WHEN YOU STOOD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ORCHESTRA WHEN

  • WE WERE DOING THE OPENING OF THE TONYS.

  • >> James: THAT'S RIGHT, I SHOULD TELL PEOPLE WITH WHEN I

  • DID THE TONYS THE FIRST TIME, GARY WROTE THE SONG THAT WE

  • OPENED THE TONYS WITH.

  • AND WE WERE IN NEW YORK TOGETHER AND THAT WAS AN INCREDIBLE

  • EXPERIENCE.

  • IT REALLY WAS.

  • >> BUT THIS IS SIMILAR TO THAT I REMEMBER YOU SAYING I'VE GOT TO

  • TAKE THIS IN BECAUSE THESE MOMENTS DON'T HAPPEN VERY OFTEN.

  • I MEAN IN LONDON WE HAVE SOME OF THE BEST MUSICIANS IN THE WORLD

  • WHEN THEY-- THERE IS JUST NOTHING LIKE IT, I CAN'T EXPLAIN

  • IT, IT HAS BEEN AN AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE, THE WHOLE

  • THING AND REMEMBER THIS ALL HAPPENED AND WAS RECORDED BEFORE

  • WE WENT INTO LOCKDOWN.

  • IN FACT WE DID OUR VERY LAST RECORDING SESSION WITH THIS 60

  • PIECE ORCHESTRA TWO WEEKS BEFORE LOCKDOWN SO WE WERE SO FORTUNATE

  • TO MAKE IT JUST IN TIME.

  • >> I'M SO GLAD YOU DID.

  • THERE ARE SO MANY BRILLIANT SOJS ON THE RECORD.

  • BUT YOU WROTE A DUE ET ON THE ALBUM CALLED THE KIND OF FRIENDS

  • THAT I NEED.

  • AND I WAS BLOWN AWAY AND TRULY HONORED THAT YOU ASKED ME IF I

  • WOULD SING WITH YOU ON IT.

  • AND I LOVE THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE.

  • FOR ANYONE WHO HASN'T HEARD THE SONG EXPLAIN WHAT IT IS ABOUT.

  • >> THIS VERY BRITISH THING OF THE WAY WHEN TWO MEN TELL EACH

  • OTHER THAT THEY LOVE ONE ANOTHER, THEY INSULT ONE

  • ANOTHER.

  • AND IT HAS BEEN A FASCINATING EXPERIENCE BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN

  • DOING INTERNATIONAL PROMOTION THIS WEEK, SO I HAVE BEEN TO

  • ITALY, BULL GARIA, HUNGRY, THEY JUST CAN'T GET A GRIP ON THIS

  • WHOLE THING.

  • YOU INSULT ONE ANOTHER AND THAT MINES YOU LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

  • IT'S THE MOST BIZARRE THING, THAT I ACTUALLY THINK PEOPLE

  • FROM BRITAIN ONLY GET BUT THAT IS WHAT THE SONG IS ABOUT.

  • IF I INSULTED YOU IT MEANS I LOVE YOU.

  • >> SEE GUILLERMO?

  • >> THANKS FOR THE EXPLANATION.

  • >> James: I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL HIM FOR FIVE YEARS.

  • NO, IN IS, I'M-- THIS IS LOVE.

  • NOW YOU'RE PERFORMING IS CALLED INCREDIBLE CHRISTMAS.

  • AND I HAVE BEEN ON YOU NOR A LONG TIME TO WRITE A CHRISTMAS

  • SONG.

  • THIS IS YOUR FIRST EVER AFTER 30 YEARS OF WRITING SOME OF THE

  • BIGGEST SONGS IN THE WORLD.

  • WHY WAS THIS THE RIGHT TIME FOR GARY BARLOW'S CHRISTMAS SMASH.

  • >> YOU KNOW WHAT, THIS SONG INCREDIBLE IS ONE OF THE FIRST I

  • WROTE.

  • AND DURING THE SUMMER PERIOD I LOOKED AT THE END AND THOUGHT

  • YOU KNOW WHAT, CHRISTMAS IS GOING TO COME EARLY THIS YEAR SO

  • I DID A TWIST ON THE LYRIC AND I CALL THE IT THE INCREDIBLE

  • CHRISTMAS.

  • SO WHO KNOWS.

  • >> James: I'M SO PLEASED YOU DID.

  • I MEAN IF I AM HONEST AND I TOLD YOU THIS, I WOULD LIKE AN ENTIRE

  • ALBUM OF BRAND NEW CHRISTMAS HITS.
