Gary Barlow names Children In Need band The Collective

By
Gary Barlow and co for Children in Need
Gary Barlow has announced the name of his new Children In Need music group.

After asking readers of The Sun to submit ideas, Barlow settled on the name The Collective for the group of musicians who will perform on the children's charity's new single.

The Collective - which consists of N-Dubz, Rizzle Kicks, Ed Sheeran, Wretch 32, Tinchy Stryder, Ms Dynamite, Chipmunk, Mz Bratt and Dot Rotton - have recorded a reworked version of Massive Attack's 'Teardrop' to raise money.

Barlow said of the initiative last month: "I think this is a brilliant project. Children In Need has a history of doing upbeat singles with comedians but it's a serious charity doing a lot of hard work for serious causes.

"It's time to do something with artists who young people actually listen to. I've done these things before, I'm used to doing group situations, I like it - it's a challenge."

Labrinth has produced the track after working on his own debut solo effort over the past few months.

The Collective will release their version of 'Teardrop' in aid of this year's Children In Need on November 13.
