Although he is currently starring as a judge on The X Factor, Gary explains that 2013 will revolve around Take That and the band will be his main focus.
He told The Mirror: "The band cycles are obvious, everyone wanted a year off this year and now everybody can't wait to get back into the studio in February and that is what we are going to do.
"So, hopefully, an album for Christmas and a tour the following year.
"We're all creative, we're singers and songwriters. There's plenty left in us, don't worry."
Glad to hear it!
But we're hoping this doesn't mean that Gary will be leaving his Saturday night slot on The X Factor, as we've gotten used to his charming and charismatic nature on the judging panel.
Nevertheless, the 41-year-old hasn't ruled out the option of not returning to the singing competition next year.
He added: "I have enjoyed this series more than last year but the show feels like it has been going on for a year this time.
"If this is my last year, I've had a lot of fun and enjoyed every minute."
We have to admit, The X Factor won't be the same if Gary doesn't end up coming back, but then again, we'll have the new Take That album to console us.
