Ronan Keating wants to make music with Gary Barlow

Ronan Keating wants to make a charity album with Gary Barlow.

The Boyzone star wants to get in the studio with the Take That frontman and duet on a series of songs for an LP and the pair have discussed a potential project at great length.

The two talents are determined to make the collaboration work but they just haven't been able to get their diaries to match up so far.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Ronan said: "Gary is a friend of mine and we always talk about it but our diaries never allow us. But one day I'd love to write a song with Gary - he's a great guy.

"We both have very different sounds but it will be lovely to mix those. I can't think of anything better that doing a charity album together, it would be great. It would be huge, can you imagine it?"

The 39-year-old singer recently released his latest solo album 'Time of My Life', which is a collection of love songs inspired by his relationship with his wife Storm Uechtritz.

Ronan - who is heading out on a UK tour from September - thinks the LP contains some of his best tracks yet.

He recently told BANG Showbiz: "Storm's inspired me for the last 12 months to make this record, I've dug deep about my feelings and all the songs come from the heart. It's very autobiographical, I'm in a great place and that's come out of me in the lyrics. I'm proud of the songs, I think they're my best work and I'm excited for people to hear them live, I was excited for Storm to hear them."
