‘Heavy Entertainment Show’ will be out on November 4th.
The chart-buster star’s new release – which is called Heavy Entertainment Show – was unveiled during the X Factor ad break a few days back. The ad featured Williams, 42, dressed as a boxer in the ring, fighting as both opponents.
“I’ve been working on this album like I work on all the other albums,” he said. “It’s been a process of three years, some of these songs that have been on the album I’ve had three years ago, and I’ve had on my computer and I’ve been very excited about them, and the new ones have taken their place and then the old ones have gone, and then the old ones come back up, the new ones, it’s just a process that’s been years in the making.”
The album features songs co-written with British superstar Ed Sheeran, Brandon Flowers from The Killers, Grammy-winning songwriter Stuart Price and Robbie’s long-time collaborator Guy Chambers.
It also features a duet with Rufus Wainwright on “Hotel Crazy” and a duet with John Grant on “I Don’t Want to Hurt You.”
Robbie said with regards to Guy Chambers, “We’re back in each others’ lives and I love him, he’s my musical brother, and you know, he’s my spiritual brother. We just try to get back into the studio and recreate some magic, and hopefully reconnect with what made it and us successful in the first place.”
It’s his 11th studio album in total and his 19th including compilations and live records. It follows a string of 11 UK chart-topping albums – something only Elvis Presley has been able to pull off.
