We're throwing it back to 2021, to when Sir Barry Gibb teamed up with Keith Urban for the beautiful country remake of his 1968 classic song 'I've Gotta Get a Message to You.'

The single featured on Gibb's country album, Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers Songbook, Vol. 1.

As a big fan of bluegrass and country music, the 76-year-old's album featured 12 country covers of some of the Bee Gees biggest hits, including other duets with Olivia Newton-John and Sheryl Crow.

Speaking about the album at the time Barry said: "From the first day we stepped into RCA Studios in Nashville (the very place where Elvis, Willie, Waylon, Roy, the Everly Brothers and so many other legends made their magic) the album took on a life of its own.

"I couldn't be more grateful for the opportunity to work with Dave and all the artists who stopped by. They were all incredibly generous with their time and talent. They inspired me more than words can express."

He added: "I feel deep down that Maurice and Robin would have loved this album for different reasons. I wish we could have all been together to do it … but I think we were."

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