We're throwing it back to this time last year, to when Sir Barry Gibb teamed up with Dolly Parton for a beautiful remake of his 1968 classic song 'Words.'

Unveiling the duet on New Year's Eve 2021, the legendary singer took to social media to share: "So excited to share #words with you all. @DollyParton and I had so much fun singing this song together."

The single featured on Gibb's country album, Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers Songbook, Vol. 1, which was released on January 8 last year.

As a big fan of bluegrass and country music, the 75-year-old's album featured 12 country covers of some of the Bee Gees biggest hits, including other duets with Olivia Newton-John, Sheryl Crow and Keith Urban.

Barry is the only surviving member of the Bee Gees, following the deaths of twins Maurice in 2003 and Robin in 2012.

The album is Barry's third solo album and his first since 2016's In the Now.
