Gareth Gates is to release a ‘Best Of’ compilation album.

The Bradford singer marks 12 years since he shot to fame on Pop Idol with an album of 13 tracks including his Number 1 hits, fan favourites and a recent acoustic session featuring three new self-penned songs. The album, called The Very Best of Gareth Gates, is out on March 10.

Gareth’s version of Unchained Melody became the third best- selling single of the ‘noughties’ and follow-up single Anyone Of Us (Stupid Mistake) was a hit across Europe, Asia and Australia.

The album includes these tracks, along with others such as Spirit In The Sky, Suspicious Minds, What My Heart Wants To Say and The Long and Winding Road, a duet with Will Young.

The Very Best of Gareth Gates is available to order on
