The former Take That bandmates have driven fans wild with their harmonising over video link, performing their track Shame as part of Barlow’s The Crooner Sessions.
Barlow, 49, tweeted: “Sorry to have made you wait so long for this one. Yes the dynamic duo return. Thank you @robbiewilliams for taking the time to be part of this. Big hugs (virtually of course) #thecroonersessions.”
Williams, 46, and Barlow co-wrote Shame in 2010, the first time they had worked together since Williams quit Take That in 1995. The song is about the breakdown of their relationship following the boyband’s split.
In the new rendition Williams performs sitting at his dining room table in the Beverly Hills mansion he shares with wife Ayda Field and their four children.
Barlow is playing keyboard as well as singing, performing from his home in Oxfordshire where he has recorded a series of The Crooner Sessions since the government lockdown to limit the spread of the coronavirus began earlier this year.
Fans were delighted by the performance.
Kay tweeted: “OMG it's great seeing you both together!! Thanks Gaz & Robbie.”
Take That superfan D said: “This is the winner - no Crooner Session is ever going to top this! Thank you so much for this! I love you both so much.”
TT Ultimate Forum tweeted: “Aaaahhhh I was waiting for this!!! love you guys ....you're amazing xxx”
And Gary Barlow Army wrote: “I been waiting for this and you have made so happy.”
Take That’s Howard Donald has already taken part in The Crooner Sessions, but there are now calls for bandmate Mark Owen, and even Jason Orange - who has been lying low since quitting the band in 2014 - to join Barlow for a full lockdown reunion.
NHS worker Claire Marshall tweeted: “Oohh even better with @takethat @HowardDonald @OfficialMarkO how about doing this in a #playforcarers #playforNHS #ThankYouNHS across the country. We'd love to see you all after the pandemic #croonersessions.”
And Lisa Jane wrote: “This is beautiful! Thank you both for putting this together... So that’s H & Rob. Please say there will be a MarkO turn??”
