Robbie and Gary in album battle

Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow are set to go head-to-head in a battle to top the album charts.

The Take That bandmates are both releasing new solo albums at the same time.

Robbie's new Swing album Swings Both Ways, featuring collaborations with stars such as Olly Murs, Lily Allen and Kelly Clarkson goes, on sale on November 18.

Gary's new solo album, his first in 14 years, is out a week later.

The last time the singers had competing records was in 1999 - but at that time they were not on friendly terms following Robbie's departure from Take That, and the pair became embroiled in a war of words in the media.

The pair have since put their differences behind them and are good friends, and Robbie reunited with Take That in 2010 for their world tour.
